HD: What did getting that Texas offer mean to you?

DD: "It means a lot but I kind of expected it. So it wasn't that surprising."

HD: Had you spoken to the Longhorns that much prior to your visit?

DD: "Not really that much. I talked to them a few days before when they told me they wanted me to come down for the game."

HD: Why was the offer not that big of a surprise to you?

DD: "They basically said that they were going to offer if I made it down."

HD: Even though it was expected it has to feel good to get the offer from UT, no?

DD: "It means that I must be doing something right. I must be doing good I guess."

HD: What do you think it is that the Longhorns like in you?

DD: "My of the coaches have been saying that I compete and have good explosiveness and athleticism. I feel like I can be a deep threat, go up and get the ball, and be a possessions receiver too. Whatever the team needs."

HD: What did you like about your Texas visit?

DD: "I liked being able to see the offense to be able to see if I liked it and if I could see myself playing in it or not."

HD: Could you see yourself playing in that offense?

DD: "Yes."

HD: Was their one receiver you were watching more than others?

DD: "Jaxon Shipley because he's a slot and I'm also a slot."

HD: Have you and Mayden talked about playing at the same school? Is that something you'd consider?

DD: "We haven't really talked about playing at the same school. We pretty much have the same offers but we haven't talked about it yet.

HD: I'm assuming you'll say you get the better of him on the practice field?

DD: "Oh yeah all the time."
