Coach Fountain: "In high school, the last time I saw him play before he got hurt, he did everything we do. He has done this offense for two years now. My big thing with him is we have to get him in and get some weight on him. He's about 218 now. He's a fantastic athlete that is going to be able to do a lot for us."

Coach Malzahn: "He's going to play our three back. He's a guy we identified when he was a junior. He runs a very similar offense. He can block, he can catch, he's got a little bit of running back skills. He played a bit of wildcat when he was a junior and then hurt his knee. We feel the sky is the limit for this guy."
