On the tight end group:
The tight end position is very solid. We have a lot of guys I can trust. Guys are coming to practice and doing everything they have to do.
On Beau Sandland:
Beau is solid. He can run and catch and block very well. Asante is the same. He’s solid. He can catch, block, and run.
On what his role will be:
Whatever the coaches ask, I’m gonna be ready to do.
On his size and speed:
Last time I ran the 40 I think it was 4.6. I gained 10 pounds. I’m 259.
On his strength:
I’ve gotten stronger, a lot stronger. It will actually help me during the blocking. This year I’ll be going against big defensive ends so all that squatting and benching will help.
On his favorite memory so far:
I wanna say the 65 yard touchdown catch from Stephen against USF. It was a nice feeling to stretch the defense and score the touchdown and then celebrate with our fans. It was awesome.
