"Everybody knows I am an athlete and I wanted to play quarterback.
That was a big part of my decision. Clemson was actually the first school
that came to me as a quarterback. Early in the year other schools wanted me as a
DB and when they came to see me play they started to change their thought
process on me. That is when my recruiting process really started to pick
back up again as a quarterback. But hey I committed somewhere and that is
where I am going to be. Since I shook Coach Bowden's and Coach O'Cain's hand I
knew that is where I wanted to be."
What are some things you need to improve on?
"I just need to improve on being a better quarterback. If you want to
be the best you got to progress every year and every day make yourself better. I
got improve my game everywhere."

take it easy this year and I'm just going play baseball this spring."
