AZ: David, can you tell me who you have offers from at this point?

DH: Colorado, Nebraska, Wisconsin, and Iowa.

AZ: Do you have a favorite amongst that group?

DH: Not right now. I am wide open.

AZ: Do you have a top 5 you can give me?

DH: It is more like a top 10. Colorado, Michigan, Nebraska, Iowa State, Florida, Penn State, Wisconsin, Notre Dame and Tennessee. That's nine, but that is all I can think of right now. Those other schools are sending me mail, they just haven't offered yet. Colorado was the first school to offer me back around January or February.

AZ: What coach from Colorado is recruiting you?

DH: Eric Bieniemy. He came by my school last week and we have spoken on the phone.

AZ: What do you think of Eric?

DH: I really like him. When we talk he just tells me a lot about the system they run there. What the school is like and things like that. He puts a little bug in my ear.

AZ: What is it that attracts you to the University of Colorado?

DH: It's not too far. It's a nice school and it's real pretty around there. One of my coaches used to play Basketball at Colorado a long time ago, too. So he is always telling me how nice it is there.

AZ: Have you ever been to the state?

DH: Yeah, I have been to Denver plenty of times. I go out there for a hoop-it-up tournament sometimes. I have been to Boulder too. I like it out there.

AZ: Do you plan on playing Basketball in College?

DH: Probably not.

AZ: Would you like to stay in Nebraska or leave the state for school?

DH: A lot of kids from here go to Nebraska, but I am going to look at all of my options. Nebraska is a great school and I really like them, but I need to see what else is out there. I am all for traveling.

AZ: Have you watched many Nebraska-Colorado games?

DH: Oh yeah, I went to the game last year. It was a great game as always. I will be going to it again this year, too. I have scheduled a visit to Colorado for Nov. 26th. That is the first visit I have scheduled.

AZ: Do you plan on going to any camps this summer?

DH: No, I don't think I'll be attending any camps.

AZ: How are your grades?

DH: My grades should be ok. I have a 2.7 GPA and I am taking the ACT on June 9th. I am taking a class to prepare me for it right now. I feel I'll do well on it.
