Keisean Lucier-South talked after practice this week. If you can't play the video above, try the version below.
On spring so far:
Its going good, getting stronger and bigger, on the defensive line now. Like in high school, when I was in a 3-point stance.
On what he’s working on:
Mostly my strength and technique, because Im a raw athlete. I’m going over things with Coach Angus every day in practice.
On the transition back to defensive end:
I was used to it in high school. I did a lot of it last year on scout team, in a 3-point stance.
On the biggest difference from last year:
Mental. I’ll play a lot now.
On how much weight he’s added:
When I got here, I was 212, now I’m 230. They wanted me at 225, but I’m past that. I think I got faster.
On the pressure they’ll bring:
We got bigger so I think it’s better for us. We all want to get bigger. I want to get big. I don’t want to be a small guy anymore
On how big he can get:
My goal is probably 250. That’s my goal right now. I didn’t eat a lot in high school, but here I have a lot of resources.
On if he talks to Anthony Barr:
I talk to him for a little bit. One time he was out here, I talked to him. He says congrats, that I’m working hard. Its cool talking to a legend.
On how tough sitting his freshman year was:
It was really tough, I’d never done that before, but working against the first team offensive line really helped.
On if that was expected:
When I got here, yeah, I wasn’t ready and needed to get bigger. I think that was after camp, last year we had a lot of older guys.
On his food of choice:
A lot of protein. I eat a lot of steak. A lot of steak. My plan is to eat a lot of breakfast, a lot of hash browns.
On working on moves:
It helps me a lot, because lineman want me go inside, so they want me to work on my inside move.
