I still look at them the same way as I am watching them the whole process. I think this is a school that I could see myself. I know that this is a school that is going to develop me and I know that this is a school that is going to develop me as a man and an athlete. So it has been a top school for me. And I know that if I go there, I stay there for at least three to four years, will win the national championship. When an athlete goes to Bama he knows what he is doing there. I still respect him very much. “
