How would you describe yourself as a player?

I played outside (receiver) in high school, but I'll be playing inside at Oklahoma State. I run fast routes to get open and (have) soft hands.

Are there any receivers you try to model yourself after or look up to?

I've been watching Josh Cooper since I was a freshman. I've been watching Oklahoma State for a while, just all their receivers, since that was my favorite program since I was a freshman. My favorite all-time wide receiver is Michael Crabtree.

What attracted you to OSU?

They're a program on the rise. They're getting better every year. Hopefully, my class can keep it going.

What's something unrelated to football that people would be surprised to learn about you?

I like to fish and hunt. Oklahoma seems like a place that will fit me pretty well. I was born in Victoria (Texas), and my mom's side of the family is really big in hunting and fishing. My mom's really the one that got me into hunting, and my grandma.

Do you have any crazy hunting stories?

We've had a few hogs run up on us.

How are you keeping your body in shape and preparing for fall camp?

I ran track my whole life, so that's always kept me in shape. But I don't think I'm going to run this year, just because I'm kind of burned out. But I've been working out a lot, still running a lot. I'm just trying to stay in good condition, so when I get up there, I'll be able to keep up.

What can OSU fans expect from you the next four or five years?

I hope they get to see me play a little bit. I just want it to be a good experience for me. Hopefully, I'll get to play a lot. I just want to have fun in college. That will make it a good experience.
