information was revealed during our interview with Rob Drum
How is your season going? "It is going pretty
good, I guess. We won our first game in a big comeback. But we lost our second
game and our starting QB, Neil Caudle, that committed to Auburn. He tore his ACL.
I do not know what we are going to do now."
Now that you are into
your second season or organized football; what improvements have you seen? "Really,
I think run blocking more than anything else. I get more movement in the run game.
I am better at pass blocking too, but that always came natural to me. It was like
guarding someone on the basketball court. I am just a lot more confident now."
your father play basketball for Ole Miss? "Yes sir."
have any influence with you? "He only played there for a year or two and
then he transferred to Samford. It had something to do with their coaches or something
like that. Really, he never talks about his college days. He has never tried to
sway me one way or the other. He is leaving everything up to me."
you received any new scholarship offers since we last spoke? "Vandy just
offered me. Georgia Tech, Louisville, Duke, Marshall, and Central Florida have
also offered me."
Who is closest to offering you next? "I would
say Ole Miss or maybe Tennessee."
Any phone calls on September 1st?
"Georgia Tech called me, and I think Central Florida called me too. Oh, Duke
called me on that day too."
Anymore phone calls since? "Ole Miss
and Tennessee have called."
Which coaches did you call on your own
during the dead period? "I think the only three coaches I called during the
dead period were Coaches Spencer (Duke), Sanders (Georgia Tech), and Deleone (Ole
Who are your top schools right now? "I am still pretty
much open. But I would have to say that Duke and Georgia Tech are two of my favorites."
stands out about Duke? "Just their academics and I like their location. I
think their program is also going to be on the rise the next couple of years."
about Georgia Tech? "They have made 8 straight bowl games. They also have
an excellent academic reputation."
Who else are you still considering?
"Lets see, Alabama, Auburn, Ole Miss, and Tennessee. That is about it."
college is coming after you the hardest? "Probably Duke."
you close to making a commitment? "I am probably going to commit during the
Have you started to set up your official visits? "No,
I have not set any up yet. I know Duke and Georgia Tech are going to be two of
them, but I have not set up any yet."
Do you ask the colleges who
have not offered you where you stand when you talk to them? "For the most
part, I have not asked that question. I am kind of confused where I stand right
now with the schools who have not offered me. That is what I am going to be doing
the next two weeks, clearing that issue up. I am going to see where I have a chance
to get an offer so I can start narrowing down my options."
the Alabama schools saying to you? "When I talk to Alabama and Auburn, they
say they want to see some more film from the first couple of games."
about Ole Miss? "They said they need to get some film and sit down and watch
it as a coaching staff. They said they are ready to get me an offer. They just
need some film."
Have you sent their staff any film? "I have
not yet, but I am going to do that as soon as possible."
"I talked to them the first day they could call. Their offensive line coach
came to our school and watched some film with one of my coaches."
did your coach say? "I am not really sure. I need to talk to him. I think
he said they were impressed."
Do you plan to attend any college games
this fall? "I already went to the Auburn/Georgia Tech game. I am going to
Tech in two weeks to see them play Connecticut. I am hoping to get up to a Duke
