“I’m just trying to integrate myself with the team and the coaches.”

“I like it a lot. The weather is nice... the players and coaches all have respect for me... it’s a good culture.”

“It didn’t matter to me, I just want to play good football. I know I’m far from home and my mom didn’t like that part that much, but it’s a great place where I’m at.”

“I love all of them.”

“They were my second offer out of the portal, and I was building a connection with coach Matt Wilson... he was checking on me, and when I got here they showed me a lot of love.”

“I’d say my run after the catch, I can block down the field.”

“It was really attractive if I'm being honest with you.  I actually texted Grayson [McCall] before I committed to make sure he was coming.  I said, ‘I need a QB.’ Grayson was like, ‘I like it here.’ So let’s do this thing.”

“We’ve got Grayson McCall, Wesley Grimes, Jordan Waters, Hollywood Smothers... we’ve got so many players, it’s exciting... to have an exciting offense.  That’s just from the portal.   We also have a QB in CJ Bailey, KC, and Dacari... this offense right here is something. I think everyone is going to love it.”

“I’m a hybrid player... whatever my coaches need me to do I will.”

“I can do a lot, I’m a big body type and a mismatch.”

“The creativity and explosion from coach Anae’s offense... it’s amazing because coach Anae knows what he’s talking about. He’s been doing this for years.  He’s been doing this since before I was born.”

“I’m so excited. This offense is going to be so fun. I’m going to do my best and whatever I can do for the offense.”

“I think Wolfpack Nation will be very happy as well.”
