“Coach O’Brien and Coach Mac (McWhorter) definitely are a big part of (my decision to go to Penn State). “I started great relationships with them. I started visiting, thinking more about it. Pretty much the whole thing really attracted me.”

“Before high school, I only played football for about three years. My uncle, he gave me the idea to play. I really wasn’t sure about it, because I’ve always been a basketball player. I just decided to give it a try.”
