“Just knowing I can come in here and do my best... just being versatile.”

“Actually NC State was my first call.  I actually hit somebody up to come here.   I told you I wanted to stay home and play some good football at the same time.”

“[Hollywood is] my dog. That’s my little one.  He’s going to be real good. We came in here to do it together.”

“As soon as I hit the portal they were one of my top options. I came here and they showed me the love I wanted to see, they took care of me, and I knew this was where I wanted to be.”

“The first day I met [Coach Anae] we went into a room and he showed me highlights of three backs he had at BYU and Syracuse. Those backs did some great things and he influenced me to come here.”

“It’s good. I love coach Thunder. That was one thing I was looking for was a good strength program, and here they work hard and I’m all for it.”

“That’s what I need to do. I’m trying to get to the next level and that’s catching the ball. In the NFL they want guys who can do it all.”
