At what age did you fall in love with football?
I fell in love with it at the age of six because scoring touchdowns and hearing people scream your name was very exciting.
What made Texas your pick?
From day one, I wanted to go to Texas. That was one place that always felt like home, and after I did a couple of more visits, I realized there was no other place like home, which was Texas.
What is the most difficult part of the recruiting process?
The hardest part is picking a school and making the right decision with a lot of people talking to you and getting in your head through the process.
What’s your future role at Texas?
My future role at Texas will be major at the cornerback position, making plays on the defensive side of the ball and helping my team win a national championship.
What excites you the most about college?
College football. It’s just a different energy playing in front of thousands of people doing what you love and having fun while doing it. The atmosphere and energy is way different from high school.
What is the hardest part of the recruiting process?
You can focus too much on it and get your priorities mixed up.
