What are your current Height, Weight, and 40 times?

I am six-foot-two and 205 pounds. I run a 4.4 in the 40.

What kind of weight do you push in the weight room?

I bench 285, Squat 405, and Clean 275.

How has your spring gone so far?

My spring went really well and we had a scrimmage against another team. I only played for a quarter. The starters only took about 15-20 snaps so I only had 3 rushes for 34 yards and I went 5-15 68 yards passing.

What are your plans for this summer?

My first camp is going to be LSU June 6-8. Then on the eighth, I am going to Tuscaloosa for the Alabama camp. June 14th I am supposed to be going to Auburn and Virginia after that. I am also supposed to be going to Florida's Friday Night Lights thing.

What offers do you currently have?

South Alabama, Virginia, UAB, Vanderbilt, and Stanford have offered me.

What is you interest in Georgia Tech?

I talked to my coach when the Georgia Tech coach came down here during the spring. I did not really get a chance to talk to him but I know they run the Triple option, I think I fit in really well with that style they run. I am a mobile quarterback so I would fit in nicely, plus they are a good academic school. A Georgia Tech offer would be a big pick-up for me.

What would your feelings be if Georgia Tech extended you an offer?

I would have to check out the campus and all. I do not really know a lot of about the program other than they have a good football team. I have only met one of the coaches and I cannot remember his name right now. If they offer, I will go check them out for sure.

Do you have a timetable for a decision?

I want to make a decision before my season starts on August 28. I want to focus on my team and not worry about a college choice.

What position do you want to play in college?

I just want to play wherever they need me at but if I had a choice, I really want to play Quarterback.

What are some of your strengths?

I am best at running the ball right now but I want to work on being a complete quarterback and I have already started doing that. I really want to pick up some more offers and I working hard will get me that.

What do you want major in when you get to school?

I want to major in engineering or accounting.
