Chaun Gresham, a 6-4, 200 pound linebacker, spoke with Scout.com's Dale McDuffie to start off what will be the first of many interviews he will give this year. Chaun is a big time linebacker prospect from Apalachee High School in Winder, Georgia.

Chaun, first off I'd like to thank you for taking time out of your evening to give this interview and to start it off, what are the colleges you are looking at right now?

"I'd say that Georgia Tech, Auburn, Clemson, Georgia, and Vanderbilt are the ones that I am looking at the hardest."

Would any of them be a favorite or hold a lead over the others?

"No sir, I'd say they are pretty much even right now."

What would be the biggest priority for you in selecting a college to go to next year?

"Academics is the most important thing. I want to go to a college that has a great academic reputation."

How about playing time? Is that a concern?

"No sir, not at all. I know my playing time will come when I get there. I am not concerned about that."

Last Saturday Georgia Tech had a Junior Day and I understand you attended. How did that go?

"I had a great time. I got to meet the coaches and see Georgia Tech and go to the basketball game."

What did you think of the coaches?

"Coach Johnson and Coach BJ (Coach Brian Jean-Mary) are great. They are very cool."

Was this the first time you've been to Georgia Tech?

"No sir, not at all. I went to some games last year, and I've been on campus before."

Before when you listed the colleges, there were some from all over the southeast area, would you prefer to stay in state or does it matter?

"I want to stay in state, but if I do go out of state, it will be one that is close by. I don't want to go far."

To close, what do you think you strongest traits are as a football player are?

"I would say running to the ball and hitting the ball carrier. I love to hit and play defense. I have to say those are my strongest points."

Dale's Take:
Chaun will no doubt have many college coaches after him this year and we hit it off real well from the start too. We will have many more conversations during the next year as Chaun goes through the recruiting process. He says he is looking forward to his senior year and the recruiting process too.
