Coach Jeff Jordan: He was a big-time playmaker for us who did a variety of things. He returned kicks, intercepted passes, and just made a lot of big plays. His freshman year he even played with a small fracture in his leg that we didn't know that he had until the end of the season. He's a tough kid.
CSR: Describe the change that you decided to make with him for his sophomore season.
JJ: We decided to move him from running back to safety and for him it wasn't hard at all. It really made all the difference because he is definitely a defensive player. He played with a lot more aggressiveness as a safety and he also continued to make lots of plays including even blocking kicks on special teams. We played the 46 defense and he was a free safety that had a lot of freedom to roam. His highlight film is pretty awsome.
CSR: Would you consider him a leader?
JJ: He's not a super vocal guy. He always led by making things happen on the field. He constantly made plays that would change the momentum in the game.
CSR: How do you think he will do at Iowa State?
JJ: I think he should have a real good career there. He's a weight room guy who is really put together and definitely can compete at that level. I really think he has a great chance to help their defense the next two years.
