"I felt like there were some people that are involved in covering recruiting that made some statements that were not accurate," said Joe. Those people never talked to me about my decision, I didn't receive a phone call and I didn't call them. How would do they know why or what was involved in my decision?

I don't know much about the program, but he has put together a good staff done there and I definitely have some interest in them."

What about Ole Miss and Memphis?

"I'm going to visit Ole Miss, just don't know the date yet," Joe said. "I'm going to look at the dates and once I talk to them and Memphis, I will have a better idea of how the dates will work out. We will see what happens this week and then look at the rest of the month." Recommended Stories
