Favorite place to hang out in your hometown?
We’ve got a restaurant down there [in Miami] called MLK. It’s a breakfast spot.
I’m a chicken tenders kind of guy. Chicken tenders and fries from T.G.I. Friday’s.
Biggest celebrity you’ve interacted with?
Rick Ross. My friend’s dad is real cool with him. So I’ve met him.
If not for football, what sport would you play?
I’m not a basketball kind of guy. I’d go with baseball.
What do you want to do when football is over?
I want to be a guy that can take care of my family. I’m a criminal justice major, so I’ll be a football player or a lawyer.
If you had $1 million to give to a charity, what charity would it be?
I’d have to give it to any homeless shelter. I feel like those people are really in need, and if I was in their situation, I’d want someone to come through like that for me.
Best piece of advice anyone ever gave you?
My high school coach and also Coach Heupel told me to attack everything I do on the field and off the field. So that gives me the drive to wake up every morning with positive energy, walk around with a smile on my face, laugh, and I feel like that puts you in a better mood every day.
