Recruiting coach: "My recruiting coach was Coach [John] Reagan. He was one of the reasons I came to Kansas. He's an honest guy and let me know it would be great to be at Kansas if it's where I wanted to be. He stayed with and always called. He got to know me."

Expect to redshirt?: "I still have a redshirt left, but I don't think they brought me in to redshirt. I play the X position and if I do what I'm supposed to do, I think I can come out on top."

Why KU?: "The people Kansas has coming back, and the people they have coming in were a big part of my decision. I want to play in a great offense, and there are a lot of good, young players already here. We have a chance to win big, and Kansas was where I wanted to be."
