LAFM: How does your knee feel? Where are you in your recovery?
I am running on it now although I have not started cutting on it yet. I have a lot of time to get ready, and I am not rushing it. I think my knee will be better and stronger than ever.
LAFM: When did you first come into contact with tigers?
They saw me at their camp my sophomore year. I balled out and they have been in touch with me ever since.
LAFM: Why did you choose LSU?
It is close to home. I feel like I wanted to represent my home and my state. I want to win a national championship for Louisiana.

I liked taking the trips, meeting the coaches, players, fans, and pretty ladies. It was the whole experience of each trip which I enjoyed the most. Even the food was great.
LAFM: Who are some people that stand out as major factors in helping you along the way of your recruitment process?
I would say my parents, my family, and all of my coaches. My uncle, Brian Parker, and my mentor, Warren Bates, were definitely major factors as well.
LAFM: What do you bring as a player to the LSU football program?
I think since I am moving inside from DE to DT, I will be more athletic than the guards I will be facing. I have great sideline to sideline skills. I am a leader and have a motor that drives me every play.
LAFM: What are you most excited about going into next year?
I am excited about getting my knee right and being able to play again. I cannot wait for those big game in Tiger Stadium. I am also really excited for the Wisconsin game in Houston.

My coaches did a great job of getting on me every day. You know, they made sure I was getting ready for the next level. They told me everything gets tougher in college and wanted to prepare me for the next level. We had college workouts and college level practices. Lastly, my coaches prepared me for life and becoming a young man.
