On moving to ASU and being on his own: "I'm excited about it, I think ASU holds great opportunities for me. I'm really excited about being able to grow as a person and kind of learn by myself."

Why ASU: "I've always liked them cause they're in-state, and ever since I started playing football and knew I had the potential to play in college, I just was hoping that ASU would offer me." 

On his late-developing recruitment: "I went to ASU and then on Sunday is when they offered me. At first they weren't guaranteeing me to come in this fall, I could have potentially grayshirted, but coach (Billy) Napier called me and said we want to bring you in for sure, 100 percent this fall."
