Visits w/ player comments:

North Carolina 1/3  - "I know someone up there, and I felt very
comfortable when I was up there."

Clemson 1/10 - "They need lineman.  I like the guy who is recruiting me. 
He is a great guy."

South Carolina 1/17 - "They got a great coaching staff.  They got talent
and they are going to be a winning team even though they struggled this
season. A lot of games they were one or two plays away."

Tennessee 1/24 - "They got everything.  I'm not knocking anyone else, but
they got everything."



"I'm not going to reveal that right now (laughing)."

Did you prefer to play on the offensive side of the ball?

"Yes I think so.  I pass block very well."

What are some thing you need to improve on?

"Quickness, foot speed, balance are the main things."

Listen to the full interview with Mickey Plyler here.

Is your strength pass blocking or run blocking?

"Pass blocking most definitely."

Are you making friends with some of the other Shrine bowlers?

"Marion Dukes.  He is trying to get me to go to Clemson. Antwan
Surratt, Brendon Sims, and all the area guys."

Do you play any other sports?

"Yes I am going to try to win the state again in the shot put. 56 foot is my
personal best."
