Has your size changed at all?
I think I'm 6-7 now. I'm a growing boy. I think my weight has gone down a little because of basketball, but I'm getting it back up.
What does your workout routine entail?
WKU sent their workout program, so I'm gonna start next week. Monday, Wednesday, Friday I'll be lifting and Tuesday and Thursday I'll be running and getting with some guys and throwing.
When do you plan on reporting to WKU?
I know I'm doing summer school, so it's whenever I need to be up there. I know it's early June.
What do you plan on working or improving on through this summer?
I wanna get into the playbook, study that a little bit. I know I need to get a little bigger for college ball. I know they'll beef me up when I get there, but if I get a little bigger before I get up there, get my foot speed a little better and keep throwing, I won't be shocked with my body what I'll be doing. It's just improving on the little things and getting better ont he whole.
How would you describe your playing style?
I'm really calm. Not a lot gets to me. A lot of things don't bother me when I'm back there and I can control the game.
What are some of your goals for your freshman season at WKU?
I definitely wanna put on some weight. Getting to play would be kinda hard, but I'm gonna compete. I don't know what they're gonna feel or what they're gonna do, but obviously you wanna play up there. I've played so many years, it'd be weird to sit out a year. But basically I just wanna get to a bowl game, get the team going and start building a little franchise with WKU football.
What is your favorite food?
I just was down in Houston and the seafood was good. But pizza is awesome. That's the real deal.
What is your favorite movie?
Finding Nemo. I'm gonna stay strong to that. I don't care if anyone thinks it's funny.
Who is your favorite musician?
I've gotta go with Lil Wayne.
What would be three words to describe you?
Tall, sexy and funny
If you could date any celebrity, who would it be?
There's so many options, but Jessica Biel is bombing.
If you could pick a fight with any celebrity, who would it be?
Justin Bieber. Wait, that'd be easy and mean to beat up Bieber. But put Bieber, he's a clown. Or Kanye West. Put 'em both.
What's been your most memorable experience playing football?
Definitely just high school football as a whole with all my guys. They're really fun. Playing in the Trinity games, they never came out in our favor, but they're awesome. There was always so many fans there. Everyone went to that game.
