Has your size changed at all?
Naw, not really. It's about the same.
What does your workout routine entail?
Right now, I'm doing two-a-days, so when I go in the morning, I work on the uypper part of my body. The other part of it, I work on my legs and we do pool workouts.
When do you plan on reporting to Virginia Tech?
They've got me for July 2.
What do you plan on working or improving on through this summer?
I just wanna get bigger and stronger. I think I've got my speed already. It doesn't hurt getting faster, but right now I'm just working on getting bigger and stronger.
How would you describe your playing style?
People might say I'm small, so they try to take advantage. But I'm like a feisty pro. I've gotta be tough. I play with big receivers, so I'm really quick on the ball and I'm really feisty at my position.
What are some of your goals for your freshman season at Virginia Tech?
One goal is to just get on the field. Redshirting isn't always bad, but a whole year without football, it hurts. My one big goal is to get on the field and do what the coaches and the fans need me to.
What player or team are you most looking forward to going up against?
Clemson and maybe Sammy Watkins if he's still around. I wanna shut him down.
What's your favorite food?
I like curry chicken and rice. That has to be my favorite.
What is your favorite movie?
Let's see, I'd have to say Friday. That's an old-school classic.
What is your favorite TV show?
I'd say CSI.
Who is your favorite musician?
I'd have to say Bob Marley. I listen to a lot of different music. I have over 5,000 songs on my ipod and I listen to 'em at least once a week.
What would be three words to describe you?
Well-rounded, cool and humorous.
If you could date any celebrity, who would it be?
Oooh, that's a good one. If I could date any celebrity, it'd have to be Teyana Taylor.
If you could go toe to toe in the ring with anybody, who would it be?
That's a good one, but it'd have to be my high school coach. Coach Johnny White haha. He's real big, so when we catch him around school, he's always talking junk. He always tells me, when I come back from my sophomore season, we gonna fight. I'll get him then (laughing).
What's been your most memorable experience playing football?
When I scored my first touchdown in a home game. I think it was senior night. All my other touchdowns had been away.
