Recruiting coach: "Coach Louie Matsakis recruited me. From the moment that we first spoke, we hit it off great. He showed me everything at the University and made sure I enjoyed myself. He knows how to take care of his players."
Expect to redshirt?: "My goals are to be the starting punter next season and help the team and defense out in any way that I can. I'm going to do what the coaches expect me to do. I'd like to be one of the top punters in the country, or at least mentioned among them."
Why KU?: "My visit was great, and I loved the atmosphere. The coaches are like fathers to the players on the team. And all of the players are like brothers and a fraternity. Coach Mangino has an up-and-coming program, and it's only going to get better. The school is great, and I think I can be successful there. I'm excited to be a Jawhawk."
