In his words …
“The main reason I chose Penn State was the people. I feel real comfortable with everyone there from the head coach all the way down to the strength and conditioning coach and the training staff.”

“I think it was one of those things where I didn’t want to miss out on a good opportunity. I felt that I was ready to make the decision. I think the coaching staff played a big part in my decision as well as the rest of the people there.”

“The sanctions will be over during my time up there. If my goal is to reach a bowl a game, then I should be able to do that during my career. The main thing I am looking for is place where I can go to develop as a player , as a person, and get a good education.”

” With (Christian) Hackenberg and Tyler Ferguson, I know I will have a good quarterback to throw me the ball, so that was part of my consideration.”
