"He's been tremendous both as a wideout and we are kind of looking for a second punter and shoot, he might be able to compete and be the first punter," Swinney said. "He's really talented. We just threw him out there today to see what he could do and he really, really jumped out there. I don't know if he necessarily surprised anyone. That's why we recruited him. We knew he was a talented young man. But maybe [the surprise is] where he is after six months in the program. He has gained 20 pounds. I'm very encouraged. He will help our football team."
