The 6-foot-1, 170-pound Cotton, who earned first team all-state honors this season, talks about his official visit this weekend and much more.

Q: How did your visit go this weekend?

COTTON: It went real well. I had a lot of fun.

Q: Who was your host?

COTTON: James Vandenberg.

Q: He came from the same district as you, right?

COTTON: Yep. I've known him for a while now through sports and he showed me around and I met a lot of other players too. I had a good time.

Q: What did he say about his time there so far?

COTTON: He said he's loving it there. He said the coaches are great and they treat you with a lot of respect and everything. He said he's having a great time.

Q: Obviously, you've been there a number of times, what was maybe something different about the official visit?
