What else have you been doing to prove your status?
"I went to Tulsa, Arkansas, and Mississippi's summer camps," he said. "I was going to Tennessee, Oklahoma, Georgia and Duke but I didn’t get to go because of my grandmother was in the hospital for two months."
"I am glad I stayed home, but I think those camps would have really helped me get my name out there."
Who at this point already have your name?
"I talked to Arkansas and Oklahoma and they want to see my first few games," he said. "I am real interested in Arkansas, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Georgia and maybe Miami."
Do you have any plans to visit?
"Yeah, I am going to the North Carolina game against Oklahoma so we shall see how that goes," he said. "I am just looking for the best opportunity right now."
Okay, what about the home state school?
"I am a big Razorback fan," he said. "But, I am not a fan so much that I grew up saying I just have to be at Arkansas."
"I want to look around and find my new home"
