What schools are you hearing from in football?

"Michigan State, Minnesota and Air Force"

Did you get a chance to go to any Junior Days?

"I went to Minnesota's Junior Day. I went to Winona State two weeks ago. That is the only two I've been able to go to so far."

Have you thought much about what camps you would like to attend this summer?

"I am going to the Minnesota one, for sure. I'm going to go to the Wisconsin one, too."

You played wide receiver last season with Minnesota signee J.D. Pride playing quarterback. Do you think that helped you understand more of the passing game?

"Definitely, I can see it from both ways now. From the receiver side, I learned about that. It was good to be part of the offense last year as long as I could help out."

Totino-Grace has always been known as a having a strong running game. Are they going to be a little more wide-open with you being in there?

"Without (all-state running back John) Crockett for sure. That is a big hole. We are going to be more of a balanced team this year. I'll know it (the offense) a little bit more. I'm okay with that."
