AUBURN |

WHAT'S YOUR CURRENT HEIGHT/WEIGHT AND WORKOUT REGIMEN? I'm 6-foot, 185. My workouts have consisted of getting stronger, faster and footwork. The most important thing I've been working on lately is my footwork.



ARE YOU LOOKING FORWARD TO PLAYING WITH YOUR TEAMMATE, JAKELL MITCHELL, IN COLLEGE? It's the same through high school having someone that I'm close to and can be playing with. It's big.



HOW HAS MITCHELL RECOVERED FROM HIS KNEE INJURY? He's fine and looking good. He's working out every day, running, squatting, everything. He's even better than he was before.



WHAT NUMBER WILL YOU WEAR AND WHY? No. 4. I've just always worn No. 4. To me, it's my lucky number. I've worn it since I was a kid.



DESCRIBE THE MOMENT YOU FIRST DECIDED TO CHOOSE AUBURN. I just thought it was the best fit for me. I think it was after the Georgia game when they were down and just to see that miracle play, just to see them win and comeback from a losing season.



IF YOU HADN'T CHOSEN AUBURN, WHICH SCHOOL WOULD YOU HAVE CHOSEN? Probably Bama.



WAS THERE A RECRUIT YOU WERE SURPRISE SIGNED WITH AUBURN? Nah, I don't think so.



WHAT ARE YOUR GOALS FOR YOUR FIRST SEASON AT AUBURN? My first goal is to show what I can do and try to prove myself. My ultimate goal is to win the Thorpe Award.



WHAT CAN YOUR CLASS ACCOMPLISH AT AUBURN? I think we can accomplish a lot because we've got a lot of great recruits. Everybody just has to work together and do their best at practice and workouts, we can accomplish great things.



WHAT TEAM ARE YOU MOST LOOKING FORWARD TO PLAYING THIS FALL? Alabama because they've always been a team that everybody has thought highly of and you always want to play the best.



DESCRIBE YOUR PERSONALITY ON AND OFF THE FIELD. I'm just a fun-loving guy. I always like to laugh and joke around, but it's serious when I get on the field.



WHAT IS SOMETHING UNIQUE ABOUT YOU NOT SPORTS RELATED? That I'm a funny guy, a fun character, just a dude.



WHAT SOCIAL MEDIA DO YOU USE THE MOST? I'm on Instagram more than anything.



IF YOU HAD A WALK-UP SONG, WHAT WOULD IT BE? I'd say Lil Boosie Gorilla.



WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE T.V. SHOW? Martin.



WHAT IS YOUR DREAM CAR? I'd say a Camaro or the all-white Audi.
