How did you trip to Knoxville go this weekend?

"It went great.  They wanted my decision, and I committed to them."


What were the factors that made you give your commitment?
"I just had to get that feeling. I just felt real comfortable with
everybody.  I developed a great relationship with the Coach Walton through
the whole process. He told me what I wanted hear."

Who was your host and what did you do?
"Kevin Bennett was my host along with Brandon Jefferson from NC. Mainly
we just toured the facilities, academic support, and all that. We just really
had a good time."

What does the playing time look like for you at Tennessee?
"They lose just about the whole line next year. I have a good chance to play
next year or sophomore year."


Have you had a chance to call your other recruiters and tell them about your
commitment?
"No I am working on that now. I don't know how I am going to tell Stock
(Rick Stockstill).  He has got to be the best recruiter in the world. I had
developed a great friendship with him."

Any head coaches scheduled to visit you in the home this week?
"Coach Fulmer is scheduled for Thursday. Holtz in coming tomorrow.
Coach Bowden is coming Tuesday or Thursday."

Was it a tough decision for you?
"Yeah. All are great schools. I just chose Tennessee because that was who I
felt more comfortable with."

On signing day you going to have a press conference to sign?
"Yes Sir."

Any chance you might shock the world and sign with an in-state school then?
"Ummm. No I don't so."

Were you a fan of any colleges going up?
"I was a big Clemson fan growing up."
