Has your size changed at all?
I'm about 6'2' and 175 pounds now.
What does your workout routine entail?
I go to Bob Brand, he's a trainer at Richmond. Me and Augie Conte go workout up there. It's a lot of platform, squats and stuff. It's a good workout and we do the Tech workout with it.
When do you plan on reporting to Virginia Tech?
July 1.
What do you plan on working or improving on through this summer?
I guess right now it's just putting on weight so I'm prepared to go in and maybe play or something like that. It's gaining weight and getting stronger.
How would you describe your playing style?
Aggressive and you can say I'm a leader on the field. I'm very vocal, so I speak out when I'm on the field.
What are some of your goals for your freshman season at Virginia Tech?
It depends on what I do because I don't know if I'm redshirting or not. I know for sure that the main thing is if I can get some playing time. I don't have any serious goals, it's just going in and helping out.
What player or team are you most looking forward to going up against?
I don't really have one. A lot of people I know like UVA, so I'd like to play them and show out against them.
What's your favorite food?
I'm gonna go with lasagna.
What is your favorite movie?
"Fast and Furious."
What is your favorite TV show?
These are the types of questions you can't answer on the spot sometimes (laughs). Let's see, what did I watch today? ESPN is really all I watch.
What's the one song you're getting amped up to before a game?
I don't know, I don't really listen to music before the game. Let's just put "Enter Sandman."
What would be three words to describe you?
Aggressive, leader and confident.
If you could date any celebrity, who would it be?
I'll go with Meagan Goode.
If you could go toe to toe in the ring with anybody, who would it be?
Mike Tyson. He's pretty proven and I just wanna go up against him. It'd be a good challenge.
What's been your most memorable experience playing football?
I guess you could say the Prince George game. I had two pick-sixes and two receiving touchdowns on our homecoming. That was pretty memorable.
