Moment I knew I wanted to be Irish: “It was the second day of my visit. (Defensive backs) coach (Todd) Lyght took me into the office and went over a little timeline with me. He was telling me this and that and how football is going to end one day. Just the way he explained everything — what a degree from Notre Dame will do for you. I was already interested highly, but he just put the cherry on top.”

One word to describe Brian Kelly: Classy.             

The one thing I won’t miss about the recruiting process: “The stories. You never know if what a coach is telling you is a lie or it’s the truth.”

Favorite football accomplishment: “My first time being All-State.”

Should football have an early signing period? If so, when? “Yes. I think they should make it earlier so you can focus on academics. I’d put it mid-season.”
