CW: I visited for the first time sometime in late March for their junior day. I just went up this past Sunday to commit and go to their camp.

DY: What other schools recruited you?

CW: Houston as the other school that offered me. Stanford, Texas A&M, Purdue, Oklahoma State, and Kansas State were probably the biggest.

CW: They really liked my feet and I guess, I'm pretty athletic for most linemen. It would probably be my feet and my hands. I'm frequently commented on those

DY: You run a 5.0 forty?

CW: Yeah, well, I think that's what the coaches timed me at there this past Sunday. I but my coaches timed me at a 4.91 in March or February. I don't know how accurate those are.

DY: How did the coaches say you would be utilized at Vandy?

CW: They really haven't said that much. I guess I'll be redshirted the first year and then I'll play tackle like I do here.
