At what age did you fall in love with football?
It was when I made it to high school and realized I could be good at this sport.
What made Texas your choice?
A lot of reasons. The coaches don’t just talk about football with me. They took the time out to know my parents. The players are close and it feels like a family atmosphere.
What are your goals as a senior?
We’re reaching our team goals, but I’m not getting the ball the same amount this year. It’s about winning, though.
What was most important to you as a recruit?
What were your initial thoughts of Tom Herman?
I didn’t know much about him when he got to Houston. The two years he was there really helped change our city.
