"For the first practice, I went with the tight ends," he explained. "Then after practice, Coach Strickland talked to me and said I should go with the defensive line."

"The coaches loved that I used the techniques in one on ones that they taught us earlier in practice. Coach Anderson talked to my dad and said no offer today, but they are very interested and they will meet as a coaching staff and make a decision."
