What is your current height and weight? What weight would the NDSU staff like you to report at this summer?

GW: I'm currently 6 foot 177 lbs and I haven't really been told what weight I should be, but I want to get up to about 185. What are your individual and team goals you hope to accomplish during your college career?

GW: Some team goals are just keep winning championships, conference championships to start and of course win national championships to keep the streak alive. Individually, I would really like to have a punt average of over 44 yards may seems a little out of reach, but you got to set your goals high and so it's what I do. What are you looking to work on the most this spring to prepare yourself for Missouri Valley football?

GW: I'm going to work a lot on my technique and just getting my fundamentals down before I come to camp in the fall. What future moment are you looking forward to the most as a Bison?

GW: I'm looking forward to the support of the Bison fan base. I went to a game this fall and witnessed the tailgating and all of the support firsthand and I'm really excited be back by all the support. What was the main reason you chose to attend North Dakota State University?

GW: The football tradition and the family feel that they have here. Also obviously the fans really love Bison football. What team do you want to beat the most as a Bison and why?

GW: I can't really single one team right now, personally I want to beat all the teams we play especially the bigger BCS teams to prove the NDSU is able to play at that level. Is there any unfinished academic business or are you all set to enroll at NDSU?

GW: I'm all set to enroll. If you don't make it to the NFL, where do you see yourself in 10 years?

GW: I see myself living with a family and working a job with something to do with food or nutrition. What is it about Coach Klieman and the coaching staff that makes you want to play for them?

GW: They're all dedicated and they're all wanting to win just as much as the players are. What is something you learned about North Dakota State University that surprised you during the recruiting process?

GW: How much the state and the community care about the University. What position do you expect to play at NDSU? What other position did the Bison staff mention as a possibility?

GW: Punter, possibly kicker. Have you had any communication with other NDSU recruits and if so what?

GW: When we came up for official visit, I roomed with Cole Jacob, but other than that I have not really contacted any other recruits. What player do you model your game after and why?

GW: I try to model my game after JJ Watt even though we don't play the same position. I still feel like he works hard and does everything the right way. He stays out of trouble and he's a great player and teammate.
