"I want to go to a program that has the ability to compete for the national title and BCS bowls. I competitive by nature so early playing time will also play a factor. I want to play. I also look at the job security of the coaching staff because I don't want to go through a coaching change during my time in college. Academics and location will also be something I look for. I want to major in communications and I would like to go to a school that could place me in an internship that has a future."
