Do you get the same vibe now as you did last offseason? “Absolutely. It’s just one of those things where - it’s still day one - it’s just one of those things where you see a guy like ‘oh, I see where he could be good’ or some of the guys that redshirted last year like ‘oh, he’s ready. He went to work.’”

What’s your goal in spring? “Just try to become a better leader everyday and be able to work as hard as I can and just become a better running back, be a better teammate to these guys and be whatever I can to my teammates.”

What does it mean to be a better teammate? “Just being able to tell the guys, hey, if they’re messing, be honest. It’s always about being honest and trying to push these guys everyday. Just being there whenever they need me. If they need to talk about ‘oh, man I’m struggling. I want to be on the field but I can’t,’ I can help him out. Be like ‘hey, you need to work hard, you need to do whatever you can, you need to talk to your coach, all that type of stuff.’ It’s one of those things where you can help by just talking to somebody or just listening to somebody.”

On Trey Adams’ new haircut “It’s odd. It’s odd. It’s not Trey (Adams). That’s something that I’m going to have to get used to.”

On Trey Adams’ girlfriend making him cut his hair “I didn’t know that. Now I have to go talk to him. I have to go bend his ear a little bit. He’s my locker-mate too.”

On having fun today “Absolutely. It’s great coming back. It’s cold, but it’s great to be back.”

How important is your confidence right now? “It does. It’s one of those things where it’s just like this is what I’ve been working to. You can help other guys out, but everybody is just growing and you’re there to watch it. Kamari (Pleasant) and Sean (McGrew) walked in all wide eyed and stuff like that. It’s good to see those guys kind of calming down. It’s just a blessing.”
