Has your size changed at all?
I actually grew a little. I'm 6'2" and 178 pounds.
What does your workout routine entail?
I work on technique. I work on how to stay low, flying off the ball and how to run my routes. Also, I work on how to get on the DBs' toes to make them feel uncomfortable.
When do you plan on reporting to Virginia Tech?
I report July 8.
What do you plan on working or improving on through this summer?
I guess it's the same that I'm doing now, which is technique and speed and keeping my hands ready at all times.
How would you describe your playing style?
I just like to play. If I had to put in words, I use my speed to separate myself from defenders. I'm more of a speed and agility guy.
What are some of your goals for your freshman season at Virginia Tech?
I really haven't thought that far. I've just been thinking about the whole, college experience. My freshman year, I'm really looking forward to that. I wanna get my name out there during my freshman year.
What player or team are you most looking forward to going up against?
Maybe UVA, because I know a few people that signed there. I'd like to see Andrew (Brown).
What's your favorite food?
I love buffalo wings.
What is your favorite movie?
"Forrest Gump."
What is your favorite TV show?
I'd have to say, I like "American Dad."
What's the one song you're getting amped up to before a game?
I don't know, I've got a whole playlist that I play before a game. There's a Jay-Z song called 'F-Up The World," (FUTW) that I really like.
What would be three words to describe you?
I'm very humble, very social and I consider myself funny.
If you could date any celebrity, who would it be?
Hmm, let me think. Ooh, Skylar Diggins.
If you could go toe to toe in the ring with anybody, who would it be?
Nobody. I'm not a fighter. I mean, if it was a price, I'd go get somebody.
What's been your most memorable experience playing football?
I think my freshman year, I had on different cleats than everybody. Everybody had on field cleats and I had on turf cleats, so when I ran my routes, I would slip everywhere. Initially, I didn't have a chance of starting, but I just worked my way up from there.
What's the one thing you learned from your recruitment that you would pass on as advice to a future recruit?
The one thing I took from it is go wherever makes you feel comfortable. A lot of people let other people have an impact on their decision. But you've gotta go wherever YOU feel comfortable.
