"This may sound nuts, but T.J. Millweard (Fort Worth, Texas/All Saints Episcopal) is very, very similar to former Missouri QB and first-round NFL draft pick Blaine Gabbert.

BDN: Are there any schools that you feel like you’ve developed a good relationship with at this point in the process?
Kirven: Yeah, the two Virginia schools have. Duke – their whole academic thing down there is really good. I went down there yesterday, and that was really good, it was a good visit and stuff. I haven’t really visited any other schools that actually have stood out yet but everybody is about equal right now, so I don’t really have any favorites right now.
