"I took my father and Da'Shawn Bell
with me to Ole Miss yesterday,"
added Dwight Trammer
. "Ole Miss sent word that they were interested in
me around a month ago, and I got their coaches number. Coach (Tyrone) Nix told
me he wanted me to come down there and check it out and see if I liked it."
What was his first impression?
"It is like wild to try and explain. It is just beautiful down there. I
just really liked it. The school is beautiful. The campus is beautiful and the
facilities are unbelievable. I also really liked their coaches."
What stood out over everything else?
"I think their coaches are really nice. They are real cool. I felt real
comfortable around them. I was not nervous around them. I felt like I was just
one of the boys. But the thing that stood out to me the most was their campus
and just the environment around there. I really liked it."
What is the biggest difference between the northern and southern schools?
"First off the weather (laugh). I do not know. The southern schools are
more about speed, just a lot of speed. But if you want to compete against the
best, they say you need to come down here to play."
What did the Ole Miss defensive coordinator/linebacker coach tell Trammer during
"He said he really liked my game tapes from high school. He likes how explosive
and physical I am. He thinks I could fit in at the Sam or Mike linebacker slots.
We went over how I would fit into his schemes, and we just talked about what
would be expected out of me if I were to play under him."
The Ole Miss head coach also had a talk with the Michigan resident.
"He told me that he wanted to make sure that I came back to their camp.
He thought I also looked good on film. Coach Nutt said he wanted me to work
out in front of him so they could try and get a scholarship my way."
Was the visit about what he was expecting?
"It was way better. I was not expecting it to be anything like that. I
heard they had a nice campus, but when you see it in person, it is even better
than you can picture in your head. It was most definitely the best school I
have seen so far."
And where all has Dwight visited so far?
"I have been to Michigan, Michigan State, Toledo, and Iowa."
Where will he visit next?
"I just spoke with Ohio State, and they are going to look at my highlight
tape. On my way here to Mississippi, we stopped by MTSU too."
How was Middle Tennessee State?
"It was nice. It is a little school but the facilities are nice. It is
Who are the main colleges in the picture now?
"Ole Miss, Michigan, Michigan State, Ohio State, Central Michigan, and
What stands out about Michigan?
"I just have a lot of friends who go to Michigan. The campus is really
nice and their facilities are beautiful. I do not know. I have just been up
there a lot so it would be like home away from home. It would be a great option
if I wanted to stay instate."
How did Trammer's junior season go?
"It went well. I transferred from Oak Park so I had to get use to everything,
but I felt like I did a good job. You can always do better, but I felt I did
good. I believe I had a little over a 100 tackles and 78 solos."
