The torrid pace at which the Miami RedHawks are landing commitments would make even the biggest football school jealous.

When did you commit to Miami?
Sunday night.

What were you thinking at the time you decided to become a RedHawk?
Basically it came down to what I saw down there, the feeling of the place, and the coaching staff. My running back coach DeAndre Smith is the one that did it for me. I got along with him, I like him a lot, and it is important to have a good relationship with your position coach.

What were the other schools in the running before you committed?
Bowling Green and Northwestern. Even though I didn't have an offer from Northwestern, they were still recruiting me pretty hard.

What do you see in your game that you think will be an asset to Miami?
My versatility. I'm the kind of guy that can run between tackles and get out in the slot.

Is there anything in your game you think you can improve on?
There are always improvements you can make. I know there's something I can do better, but I can't really think of it.

There's nothing wrong with being an all around great player.
Yeah, but there's always improvements. I think my durability is something I can work on.

Is there anything you plan to do in your senior year to help you prepare for Miami?
Hit the weights hard and condition.

Have the coaches at Miami given you a sense of where you fit into their plans for the future?
I will definitely be a running back. They have a spread offense, so they've been telling me where I can line up in the offensive scheme.
