Thomas Duarte talked during Washington State week.

If you have trouble viewing the video above, try the version below.

On being on the Biletnikoff watch list:

I didn’t know that. That’s an honor.

On if defenses are focusing on him differently:

A little different, not a drastic different.  In addition to seeing the defense differently, I’m spending more time in the film room and finding the holes in the defense.  

On his blocking against Oregon State:

I know I’ve struggled with perimeter blocking in the past, so I am trying to make a statement.


I watched them a few weeks back when they played Oregon on TV.  

On what you learn watching a team on TV:

You can learn who their playmakers are, their go-to-guys and you learn a lot from the commentators

On what he’s seen from WSU:

They throw the ball a lot, Mike Leach likes to go fast and they play that tempo offense everyone wants to play.  I haven’t really gotten anything on them defensively.
