NC State freshman defensive end Darian Roseboro answers six rapid-fire questions from Pack Pride.

*****

You're staying at the College Inn. What has that been like and college life?
I really like it. The coaches take care of us and all the players... all the athletes.

It's really nice.

How are classes going, and what is your favorite?
They are wonderful. It's a lot of work. You just have to learn how to manage your time. Other than that, you have to stay on your books.

The school has been really helpful. The academic advisers help me manage my time better and I'm staying more organized. It's helped the transition.

My favorite class would be Social Family.

Do you feel it's different enrolling early instead of coming in the summer?
It's a really big difference. There's so much you have to learn, and so much you have to know from film study.

It helps you a lot because if you come in the summer it's a lot to take in. You have to get acclimated to academics and you don't have that feel for dealing with football and academics.

What have the fans and students been like?
The students are really nice. My first day, when I couldn't find my class, they showed me around.

The fans are great. They are supportive and with you everyday. They tweet you everyday to give you motivation.

Who on the team has helped you out on the field?
The team... a lot of guys have helped me out.

Mike Rose has helped me out. B.J. Hill, he's my roommate, and he's helped me out a lot, not just in academics but football too. Just being there... he's someone I can talk to who has already been through the transition.

How different is college football from high school football?
It's a lot different. It's a lot faster. There's a lot more double-teams and triple-teams.

You have to study a lot more. You have to take a lot of reps to get it down.
