On being back in a live game situation:
It was awesome. I've been long awaiting for that. It was awesome for my teammates.
On five sacks in the game:
I was just happy to be out there and working on my moves. Showing everybody that I'm here to make an impact on this team and defense. I feel like I had a good day and achieved that goal.
On ramping up as the game went on:
I definitely felt like I got myself a second wind, kept on getting faster.
On where the game simulation felt on a scale of 1-10:
I would say about a 7.5. Nothing is going to be close to a game if you're not hitting. It was close but not too close.
On if he'll get five sacks in the season debut:
I hope I do. I hope I ramp it up another notch.
On the defense:
It was awesome. We were short some guys so they had to move around a bit.
On pass rush concerns:
That's just a goal. Obviously AB is a great player and had a great time here at UCLA and contributed in a big way. I take my pride in my play and with him leaving, I know I'm going to have to step it up in my pass rush and that's what I've worked on in the offseason. I want to make sure when I step on the field, I can have that impact.
