Recruiting coach: "Coach [Clint] Bowen recruited me back during the spring. We talk a lot and have a good relationship. We talk about life and football, and we are real cool with each other."
Expect to redshirt?: "I have a real good shot to return punts next season. I also think there's a chance for me to play some as an inside receiver. I'm going to work hard to give myself a chance to play, but I'll be ready for anything even if it includes a redshirt year."
Why KU?: "One reason I picked Kansas was because of the offense. It gives me a chance to get the ball in the open field and make plays. I also liked that Kansas likes me as more than just a receiver, so I have a chance to get on the field a lot of different ways. They are an up-and-coming team, and I also have family nearby."
