Has your size changed at all?
It's probably just my height. I've gotten a little taller than 6-foot. I'm probably about 6-1 and a half now. The weight's still the same.

What does your workout routine entail?
Most likely, when I workout, I workout with Peter Warrick, so it's a lot of footwork drills. Then, I actually run some routes with him and throw the ball, doing a lot of quarterback drills. WKU really doesn't know where they're gonna put me right now. They've got me as an athlete, so I'm gonna be prepared for anything when I go up there.

When do you plan on reporting to WKU?
Between June 6 and June 10

What do you plan on working or improving on through this summer?
Basically just learn the offense and get more comfortable with the new players and people from other states and stuff. I've never really played with anyone other than those in Florida. I just wanna get comfortable with my teammates and work on a little basic stuff with quarterbacks. I just need to go back to the basic side of football, like from the quarterback position.

How would you describe your playing style?
I just play real calm and know what I'm doing when I'm out on the field. I feel like I'm a step ahead of everybody when I'm on the field. There's no need to play with all that emotion and stuff out there, I just try to stay calm in critical situations and let the team know I'm a leader out there.

What are some of your goals for your freshman season at WKU?
It's basically just working out. I've never started working out earlier than probably March in my high school career. But after thayt, this year, I started in January, right after the season. I feel much better now going into my freshman year of college.

What is your favorite food?

What is your favorite movie?
Paid In Full

Who is your favorite musician?
I really don't have one, but I listen to a lot of Lil Wayne and Drake.

What would be three words to describe you?
Trustworthy, loyal and hard-working

If you could date any celebrity, who would it be?
I've never really thought about that one there. Probably Megan Good.

If you could pick a fight with any celebrity, who would it be?
Never thought of that one either. I can't even tell ya right now. I like people, so I'm not that type.

What's been your most memorable experience playing football?
Basically just having fun with my teammates and coaches, just building that relationship with all the players that's now going into the real world and college and stuff.
