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.
