  • You attended Big Dawg Camp as a Mississippi State commitment. You were able to practice on the field where you will be playing your college ball. You will see yourself on the two big screens in maroon and white. What are your thoughts about that?
    "It will be exciting to see myself up there playing on this field. I also like the brotherhood that is here at Mississippi State with the other players."

    What are your thoughts about the current Mississippi State players who were at the Big Dawg Camp cheering you on?
    "It is a brotherhood. I like how they wanted us to compete against each other. It makes me feel like I am at home, like I am home back in Louisiana."

    What did you run your forty in during the camp?
    "I didn't run the forty today because I just came from a national track meet in Orlando, Florida. When I was here in June I ran it in 4.31."

    That is interesting. Are you thinking about running track at Mississippi State?
    "I am going to try running track but I haven't talked to the track coach yet."
