Coach Mike Volarvich:

"He was a guy that was a two-way player for us last year. He’s a guy that could play on the outside or in the slot on offense. He’s a guy with really good body control. He catches the ball extremely well. (He's good at) settling in zones and understands space real good. I see him getting a lot of touches this year.

"He played corner and safety for us on defense last year. He did a really good job on both of them depending on scheme. We moved him around on that side of the ball as well.

"He’s kind of an under-the-radar guy. I think not being able to go to camps last year kind of hurt him going into his junior year. I think he’s Division-II type guy. He’s going to be a qualifier."
