Has your size changed at all?
No, but I think I'm putting weight on now. I think I've gained about five pounds, but I'm not sure. That would make me about 220.
What does your workout routine entail?
It depends on where I am. Sometimes, I'll have leg day, squats, just a lot of different things. We never do the same thing, it's just always something different. If I was to tell you, it'd be hard, because it's always different.
When do you plan on reporting to Virginia Tech?
It'll be there on (today) for orientation.
What do you plan on working or improving on through this summer?
I always look to improve everything. Nothing's perfect, so I try to work on everything to get as close to perfect as I can.
How would you describe your playing style?
I'm well-rounded and all-around. I can do a little bit of everything. I'm not great at everything, but I can do just about everything.
What are some of your goals for your freshman season at Virginia Tech?
I want at least two touchdowns. But that's really about it, so I'm guessing one of my goals is to actually play.
What player or team are you most looking forward to going up against?
It would have to be Miami or Maryland. There's no exact player, though.
What's your favorite food?
Shrimp. Just shrimp in general.
What is your favorite movie?
What is your favorite TV show?
"American Horror Story."
What's the one song you're getting amped up to before a game?
What would be three words to describe you?
Quiet, humble and I don't really have a third one. I'd say athletic. That'll work.
If you could date any celebrity, who would it be?
If you could go toe to toe in the ring with anybody, who would it be?
I'm taking on all challengers. Anybody, I don't care. It doesn't matter.
What's been your most memorable experience playing football?
It had to be my first year ever playing. We were playing Back River and there was five seconds left. We needed a touchdown and we were on the goal line. I was a lineman at tackle and my cousin was playing guard. We were the ones that got us the touchdown to win the game. We kinda blew 'em off the line.
