How does it feel to get your signing out of the way?

 It feels real good I have been waiting for this for a real long time I am real excited to be a Lobo.


What was the reason to choosing UNM?

 It had to do with the coaches, players and fans; I get along really good with all of them. That is what played a major role in my decision.


Does it mean anything to you to be a local player at UNM?

I just hope everyone can, look at me and see I am a local player with talent, and think that what people are looking for.

What other schools were on your list before you choose New Mexico?

 Santa Clara, Fresno State and Marquette offered, but I was looking at everyone. I felt New Mexico gave me the best chance to be successful.

What are your expiations for Highland HS this year, is your goal to get the State title?

 We have been looking at this for four years; I am just ready to get the first few games out of the way and get the jitters gone and start the road to State.


What Can Lobo fans expect form you when you run down that Ramp?

Energy, I am not expecting to come out and be an all-star. I just hope I come in and have a role on the team. Play defense and help out in any way.


Did the fan base play a role in your decision to come to UNM?

Yeah that always plays a role, when there are a lot of fans you get a lot of attention out there. Those games with 18,000 are the games I like to go to. It will be cool to play in front of them.

Were you a Lobo fan even before you decided to come to UNM?

 Yes, I have always been to games, I like to watch the Lobos play. I am going to go to all the games this year.  


Thanks Chad!
