Visits w/ player comments:
Pittsburgh (12/12) - "It was pretty good. I liked it up there.
Their offense is kind of like ours. They don't run 5 wide, but they throw
it. The wide receivers have a lot of routes they can do."
Clemson 1/10 - "They air it out. They go five wide. If they
could put 6 on the field they would go 6 wide. They just sling it. They
have a great quarterback who stands in the pocket and lets the receivers do
South Carolina1/17 - "They don't air it out as much like Clemson does.
They have two receivers on the field, but it's more passes for the receivers.
The receivers have to do a great job blocking, and that's one thing I like to
Alabama - (?) - "Now that the coaches are gone I'm not really sure when I am
going to take my visit or if they still want me or not."
Did you commit
to Pittsburgh on your visit up there?
"I haven't committed but I really starting to think about it."
So you are leaning to Pittsburgh?
Talk about your feeling on being selected to the Shrine Bowl?
"It was great. I just like to thank the coaches who sat down and
break down tape and actually watched me play. It felt good that they picked me
and thought I was a great athlete. Because this year someone in my position
would probably say I didn't have a good year. But I think I had a great
year because they were playing me with double coverages. Another wide
receiver on the other side stepped up and that made me feel good knowing I could
help someone else get extra yardage."
What are some things you need to improve on?
"I need to work on reading coverages, running better routes, and doing
the little things that lead up to big things."
What are some of your strengths as a receiver?
"Running good routes and blocking."
What are the factors going to be in
"My factor is not how much they want me to come up there. It's how
much I like the school and how much the school can benefit me and how much I
have to put in in the off-season to play my freshman year."
