What’s you first impression this fall? “It’s a grind, but it’s fun. I love the practices, just love it. It’s fun.”

On the difficulty of climbing the ladder with such a deep group “There are a lot of guys in front of me that are real, real good but I can’t look at it that way. I think about everyday just going hard and trying to be better than I was the day before. I’m not looking to hop forward everyday; I’m just have to go grind and get better everyday.”
What’s it like being in that room? “It’s great. Those guys are good and it helps me get better everyday. Watching them I’m like ‘I have to do it like that,’ because I know watching them I’m watching almost as good as it gets in college football.”
How important was it playing last year as a true freshman? “I think it was great. I remember back home my mom and dad were wondering why I didn’t redshirt and all that but I feel like I would be very underprepared for going and stepping on the field with 70,000 out there and trying to be a key person on defense. I think that would be real hard for me to do without having any experience. So I’m happy I did that and had that stepping stone last year.”
What’s the biggest thing you need to work on? “Probably just less hands, less grabbiness, probably some poise, more composure, and getting out of my breaks faster."
