SOR: What was the highlight of the trip for you?
D.C.: Meeting the current players on this team and getting a feel for the
team. I really wanted to get to know my future teammates and they embraced me.
They are all really cool people. It felt like family. Very comfortable and natural.
SOR: What are your expectations and goals once you get to Rutgers.
D.C.: To take it one day at a time. I am real excited to be going to college.
To earn a college degree is an honor. From a football standpoint, I want to help
this program grow.
SOR: Where is this program now and where is headed?
D.C.: I think the program has some great people in it. And the program
is only going to continue to grow. We just need to continue to get great players
SOR: What were your thoughts of NYC?
D.C.: It was very big. It is an exciting place. We went to the ESPN zone
and that was a lot of fun. They had a baseball machine where you pitched the ball
and it calculated how fast you throw. I hit 87 MPH, and that was without warming
up. Some people were joking around that maybe I should go out for baseball.
SOR: This is your 2nd time to Rutgers. How do you feel after this visit?
D.C.: I just feel very comfortable. I felt at home. Not up tight at all. It feels
good. I know Rutgers is the right place for me.
SOR: Any post-season all-star games?
D.C.: I am playing in the Offense-Defense All Star Game on January 6th.
That will be played down in South Florida.
