"I'm a little interested in looking at schools in the South. This summer, I might attend a few southern schools camps, but I'm leaving all of my options open."
With another year like last year, he should have college recruiters from the South as well as the North, East and West looking to get his services for four years.
His twin brother Bilal, also plays for the Peddie school as a cornerback and wide receiver.
