"I think his athleticism is his greatest asset, being as big as he is. He plays basketball also, and I think that will aid him in his quickness and the way he can move."
"Wake has a plan for him; they have a plan of how they their bring kids in. I think they see the potential in him to get bigger and stronger, and I think that's one thing that they want. I think as a rusher, and pass rusher, that's one thing they can count on."
"The coaches sat him down and told him how he fits into their system and plan of playing time. I think he liked the smaller atmosphere at Wake. Plus, he's high on academics. He's not going just to play ball. Academics is a very important thing to him and his family." .
