If he were to visit today, his visits would be to:
USC: “It’s close to home too. I can just drive down. I mean, its USC.”
UCLA: “Playing home games in the Rose Bowl. I’ve heard about it because Marty’s son, Scott, plays there and I’ve heard nothing but good. The whole college thing,, hearing about it is surreal.”
Nebraska: “Winning. Nebraska is about winning.”
Notre Dame: Because of the movie, “Rudy”. To see the tradition that goes on there. That just made an impression on me.”
Texas: “Texas and California are big football schools. To see a Longhorn on my helmet is something just cool to think about it.”

Hobbies: “I’ve been snowboarding around eight years. Lifting weights, hanging out with friends and listening to music, but not rap. Mostly punk music – bands you probably never heard of like “New Found Glory”, “Starting Line”, “Keepsake” and “Yellow Card”.

College Major: “I haven’t given it any thought.”
