Alex Van Dyke answered questions at practice.
On how he feels:
Speaking for myself, its going good. We're having fun. Competitive, everyone is doing their thing.
On what he wanted to prove:
I wanted to show I can derop my weight and run routes. I can run crisp routes and catch everything coming my way and knowing coverages.
On playing as a true freshman:
That was a great experience and got me in the swing of things so I'm not new to everything. It warmed me up.
On if he was happy playing as a true freshman:
Overall I was happy, it was a great experience, the team was good.
If he expected to redshirt:
I came in here not wanting to redshirt, I wanted to compete for a spot.
On the quarterback competition:
The quarterback competition is good, every one of them is good, as long as they throw the ball. I'm a receiver so just get us the ball. I have love for everybody.
On his relationship with the coaches:
Its nothing big, they do their job, we do ours. We run the routes, they get it to is.
On his size:
Inm pretty solid with myself right now. If i get bigger, it happens. I'm 216 right now.
On if he's hitting his stride:
For spring, the first few practices I was alright, but then I started getting things going.
