Thoughts on his favorites?

Texas A&M: "Pretty much my whole family went there and I've always been a big fan of the program there. And, I've always been an Aggie. I love their colors (Maroon and White) and I love the stadium. And, I want to major in engineering and they have a really good engineering program at A&M."

Texas: "I've had a lot of relatives (uncles) go there, too. And, my mom's cousin played there (Kyle Walsh) before he was paralyzed from a car accident. And, UT has a very good engineering program, also."

Navy: "I just like the fact that they're a military academy. Also, one of my friends (Patrick Snow) is going there this year (2007 commitment)."

Notre Dame: "I like the location, the school, the tradition, etc..."

U of H: "My brother (Matthew Barrera) goes there, it's really close to home and I have a lot of friends from high school who go there. They said they really like the school."

OU: "I've seen Oklahoma recruit a lot of good players. They just have a really good program going on there."

OSU: "They're in the Big 12, and close to home, and they've turned that prgram around there with their new coaches."

Texas Tech: "It's close to home, they have a good program, and they've been to a lot of bowl games since Mike Leach took over there."
