Needs work: "I need to work on my quickness and footwork. I'm a taller guy, so I think I can improve more in both of those areas."

Expected to redshirt?: "I know it's different for everybody. I want to play early, but I don't think redshirting would be a problem. Getting used to the game is important. I've talked to the coaches, and they've said it won't take me long to get used to it."
