Why Ohio State?: "Ohio State's team and coaching staff really made a difference. I felt it was the right choice because of that and the fact that it has always been a dream of mine to play as a Buckeye. Big 10 is where I wanna be, and where I have ended up."
What surprised you the most about the recruiting process?: "I learned that I really had to do most of the first contact with coaches and make an effort. I couldn't just sit there and hope someone found me. I had to go after what I wanted and it payed off."
