You took an official visit on Jan 13, what was that like?
“It was great hanging out with some of the recruits and commits and some of the players that are there. It was just great all around.”
What’s been the biggest thing about UTSA that makes you feel like you’re making the right decision?

Do you get a family atmosphere vibe from UTSA?
“Yes sir, it feels like everyone is family and we all are just coming together, no matter who we are.”
You suffered a season-ending knee injury, what was it like going through that?
“Well certainly it didn’t end the way I wanted it to end. But God does everything for a reason. I think that there’s something in store for me even though I tore my ACL. I’m rehabbing right now and I’m going to come back bigger and faster and stronger than ever. He does everything for a reason so I can’t get mad about it.”

“I just felt like they really believed in me and still think I can come back and become a better player than I was before I got hurt.”
How do you think you fit into OC Frank Scelfo’s offense?
“Coach Scelfo came from the NFL. I’m not going to say anything to him because he knows what he is doing, obviously. He’s done it at the big stage. I just need to come in and do what he tells me to do and we’ll just go from there.”
Have any other schools come in on you late in this recruiting cycle?
“Yes, there have been a few but I’m not going to name who they are. I’m staying committed to UTSA no matter what.”
