"I think he is one of the most athletic offensive linemen that I've ever coached," Rush said. "Very tenacious. A great kid to coach."
Coach Rush talked of the decision for his star lineman to K-State.
"I think he had a real good relationship with the offensive line coach that was recruiting him," he said. "He took a couple of other trips, but in the end I think that relationship was the key. Coach (Tim) McCarty."
"He is great," Rush responded when asked of coaching Alesana. "He is a real good learner. He listens really well, and he applied it which is more than what most people do. He took what he learned and actually used it on the field. He was here two years."
"He played tackle his last year. I believe that is where he is going to play at Kansas State."
