went to that game. I shook his hand on the field. That was it. So I don’t know any of them too well.”
OU has a long tradition with East Texas recruits. Are you familiar with Malcolm Kelly, now with the Redskins who attended Longview before going to OU?
"I heard of him. I know who he is. I really haven’t spent much time in Longview. But I saw him play at OU.”
You already have more than 140 catches in your high school career, with still a season to go. Do you pride yourself on production?
"I love it. To me, I can’t never have too many catches. My sophomore year, I set a goal. I was going to try and get 1,000 yards and over 50 catches. And I achieved both.”
You’re a receiver who wants the ball?
"I feel like I can do some things when I get the ball in my hand. That’s how confident I am.”
You’re hitting the board in almost all the recruiting rankings. How do you not let that get to your head?
"Most players, their senior year, after they’ve committed, they don’t have to do too much. I could have two catches next season and still have my scholarship. But you can never work too hard. You never know who out there is working harder than you. So my senior year, I’ve got to go all out. I have a lot of people looking at me. With the teams in our district this year, it’s gonna be hard.”
You seem to have that swagger. Is that something, as a receiver, you need to have?
"As a receiver, you have to have that swag. Ask any great receiver. The swag, you have to have. That’s me and that’s what I was taught. To go out there with an attitude, that no one can hold you. If you come out there all scared, you’ve lost already. Not to say I’m cocky. I’m not. But you get on the field, your mind has got to change.”
Is there a receiver you look up to?
"In college, Percy Harvin. That dude, that was my boy. He could run, do it all. Also, Michael Crabtree. Going against him, you were going to have to come with you’re ‘A game.’ My NFL receiver, I’d probably have to go with DeSean Jackson.”
