"I have having a real good season," Teague said. "We have a chance to clinch the region this week against Jackson Northside. I have rushed for over 900 yards and I am averaging close to 20 yards a carry. It's something ridiculous like that. I have also thrown for over 700 yards. Things have gone well."

In regards to recruiting, Teague has taken one official visit and that was to Florida when they played LSU. According to Teague, that visit set the bar for the remainder of his recruitment.
"They (the Gators) are ahead of the pack for sure. I had such a good time down there and I came away so impressed with Florida. It was my first time there and I was finally able to meet and talk with the coaches. The game atmosphere was phenomenal. They are definitely my leader."
According to Teague will be visit Georgia Tech and Miami official after the season. He will trip to Tennessee (unofficially) this weekend for their home game against Alabama.
"I am debating on Clemson still and I really want to check out Vanderbilt for a game. I have been there but not for a game."

"Man that started out like a blowout and I thought it would be a long night for Miami. But I was impressed how they battled back."
