How’d you receive the FSU offer?
“I received the FSU offer by calling Coach Haggins, and we talked for a little just about football stuff.”
What was your reaction to the offer?
“To me, Florida State’s always been a great school academically and athletically, so it’s a blessing to be offered.”
Do you plan to visit FSU when the Dead Period ends?
“Yes, I plan to visit FSU this summer.”
What other schools are you hoping/planning to visit?
“Many: Penn State, Maryland, Ohio State, Alabama, Notre Dame, Georgia, [and] Arizona State (possibly).”
How would you describe your style of play?
“I’d say I am a power/speed guy. I’m 260 and have a 6’7 wingspan, so I use my arms to my advantage on the edge, but I also work on my speed and footwork to be able to get around bigger guys quickly.”
“Who do you look up to/model your game after?
“Guys I model my game after are guys like Rashan Gary, Joey and Nick Bosa, J.J. and T.J. Watt, and Chase Young.”
Do you think by the time you get to college you might be a DE on early downs and an interior guy on 3rd down?
“No I don’t—I plan to be a 5 or 6 technique in college as long as I keep my speed.”
Do you feel any schools are currently recruiting you the hardest?
“Not really yet—they’re all pretty much balanced.”
Final one, and we’ll let you run:
What are the biggest things you’re looking for in a school when making your final decision?
“The biggest thing for me is going somewhere where I can grow and play as much as possible. I also want to go somewhere I feel at home and have a connection with the coaches.”
