Who has offered?
AP: I have no offers yet, unfortunately kickers and punters seem to get those last scholarships, so we'll see what happens.
Who's recruiting you the hardest?

Who is recruiting you at Kentucky?

What do you like about each school in your top 5?
Kentucky: Brings SEC football to the table, great facilities, and the coaching staff.
Notre Dame: Just so much tradition.
Ohio State: Complete football powerhouse.
Wvu- Program is on the rise, and is close to home.
Northwestern- Beautiful campus and great academics.
What are you looking for in your school of choice?
AP--Program prestige surrounded by a great coaching staff, strong fan support, academics, and campus setting.
Who did you grow up rooting for?
AP-- I just love college football and what it has to offer but I've never had a favorite team .
When can we expect a decision?
AP-- I think the recruiting process for most kickers and punters drags throughout their Sr. season. Hopefully when offers come in I can weigh out the options and have a decision shortly after my season, unless I receive an offer early from a school that I am really looking at. I would love to get this process over with as early as possible.
