"When I went back to Vanderbilt, I remembered all of the reasons why I committed in the first place. I love this university. Coach Mason and Coach Lightner are good people. I found them to be genuine, nice, and focused on winning. I got along well with all of the commitments I met. We have some great athletes coming in and I think we're going to be very successful with this group. We have a lot of potential, but they say all potential means is you haven't done anything yet. I want to be a leader within my class and influence my teammates and go out and make an impact next year. They like me at right tackle or guard, but position doesn't matter to me I just want to win and be great."
