"I go to the doctor on Friday, so I'll get released on Friday and I'll start working and getting back in shape. I'll be ready to go by Vegas, I'll be 100-percent by Vegas.

"I just want get out to Vegas and have a big tournament because I've missed every other tournament and opportunity I've had to get my name out there more. So I'm just getting prepared."


"I haven't picked up anymore offers but the recruiting really hasn't slowed down in general. They still talk to me and call me. I've talked to Florida, Alabama, of course Tennesse and Vanderbilt. Memphis, Virginia Tech and Arkansas.

"I think Memphis is kind of close to pulling the trigger and Alabama, once they see me in Vegas. I've also got a Florida camp in August, August 8th I think. It's an elite camp and maybe they'll offer after that."
