How was your season?
have done better," added Derrick Chatman. "I think we all played hard
but we just made too many mistakes,"
What were your season stats?
not big on stats. I'm more of a team player. When I'm on the field, I'm just looking
for the ball. I don't keep up with stats."
Who's recruiting you right
"I have offers from West Virginia, Oklahoma State, Southern Miss,
Kansas State, and Mississippi State."
Tell me a little about each
West Virginia - "I'm in love with them, but I am not going to
lie. When Coach Rich Rodriquez left, it hurt my heart. I was pretty much set to
go there. Since he's gone, they are probably 3rd on my list."
State - "I'm going to visit OSU on 1/18. I think I will fit in good with
their players. I love their coaches. They are going to play me at DT. I've been
working on losing weight but they want me to gain it. I know it's far away but
I could endure it."
Southern Miss - "Southern is only 4 hours
from home. I have two friends that play there. I spoke with their new head coach.
He's a really cool guy. I also stay in touch with Coach Hughes. They do a good
job of staying in touch me and letting me know how much I am wanted. They say
I am one of their top prospects on the board. That means a lot to me. I have a
visit with them set up for 1/25."
Kansas State - "They mostly
call my coaches. I'm looking forward to meeting them, and hopefully setting up
a visit. They are really cool guys. I can't wait to learn more about them."
State - "Coach Melvin Smith is recruiting me. They want me to play DE and
DT. I like the thought of that. They say I'm quick enough and fast enough to play
outside and I'm strong enough to play inside."
Do you feel more comfortable
with any particular staff?
"I feel the closest to the Oklahoma State
staff. I feel like I have known them forever. We talk about everything. We talk
football, academics, and girls, just everything. They are real laid back and easy
to talk to. They have done a great job recruiting me."
Does the talented
lineman have a leader?
"Right now Oklahoma State leads. They are followed
by Southern Miss, West Virginia, Mississippi State, and Kansas State."
