“I kind of tweaked my groin the first day of camp,” said the 5-foot-9, 175-pounder. “I spent four days trying to rehab it, just playing it smart so I wouldn’t tear it and then be out for the season. When I came back, I was told, I’d have to work my way back to the top.
“It was kind of a weird situation. I felt like I performed and was never really given the chance. So after the season, I knew I wanted to explore other options, and Notre Dame just kind of came out of the woodwork.”
