* * *
Who are you looking forward to playing with the most?
I am really looking forward to playing with Connor Ketter again!
Did the late offer from Nebraska surprise you? How pumped were you when it happened?
Yeah it surprised me a lot but I was pretty pumped to get that call
David, how did you get your paperwork into NU while being snowed in? What else did you do this morning and is it disappointing to have signing day "snowed out"?
I was able to scan it and then send it in over email. My parents and I were able to get into the high school today and take all of the pictures for the paper. Haha its really nice to have it on a snow day!
Did you grow up wanting to be a Husker?
It has been a dream of mine for a very long time!
What player is your role model, either growing up or a current player right now?
Growing up I was always a big fan of Lavonte David.
Have the coaches talked to you about playing time yet?
No not really, but I will redshirt next year.
What skills do you bring to the team?
I feel like I bring good hands explosiveness and good vision to the offense.
Do you know Ben Stille from Ashland? If so, have you two talked since you got the NU offer?
Yeah I met Ben on an unofficial visit this year and we have talked a since Monday about going to Nebraska.
Did a chance at playing in the Big Ten impact your recruitment at all?
Yes it did. It has always been a goal to play at the highest level and it doesn't get much bigger than the Big Ten
