What are your measurements (height,
weight and forty time)?
I'm 5-11 and 200 pounds and run
somewhere between a 4.4-4.6.
You were a heralded recruit coming out
of high school, what programs were
interested in you?
Florida was definitely a big program
that was interested in me because Coach
Mullen kept showing up in Tupelo to
watch me play when he coached there.
Alabama, LSU and pretty much the rest of
the SEC also recruited me pretty
Why did you choose Mississippi State?
I had a great relationship with Coach
Mullen and knew with his offensive mind
he could develop me into a NFL-type wide
receiver. That and the fact that
Starkville is only an hour away from my
home in Tupelo made it an easy decision.
Briefly describe your career to us.
I don't know what to say, other than it
was a great four years and I made some
friends and bonds with people that will
never be broken. I had a lot of fun and
I was fortunate to win a lot of games
and will cherish this experience
You had a breakout senior campaign, what
are the main reasons behind that
I'm not sure what the main reasons are
other than hard work and attention to
detail. I tried really hard to take my
game to a whole other level this year,
and I think it paid off. But to be
honest, it's a credit to Coach Brewster,
Coach Mullen, Tyler and the rest of the
offense for helping me be in the
position I was to put up numbers.
You broke the all-time TD receptions
record at the school during your senior
season, how does it feel to be on top?
It's a humbling feeling. They tell me
every now and then about this record or
that record, but to me it's not about
that. It's about being successful and
teaching the young guys, so when I leave
they'll break those records.
Your team will face a tough Northwestern
team in the Gator Bowl, what can you
tell me about your opponent?
I actually can't tell you much about
them. I've seen a couple of their games
on television when they played early and
we had night games, but I really don't
know much about them.
Tell me about your teammate QB Tyler
Tyler is a great leader and he's going
to be a NFL quarterback one day. We have
a real good connection out there and he
just makes my job so much easier.
Is Dan Mullen one of the most underrated
coaches in the nation?
Absolutely. He's taken us to
three-straight bowl games for the second
time ever. He is a player's coach, and
I'm proud to call him my coach.
What are your strengths on the football
I think my attention to detail in my
routes as well as my hands.
What areas of your game do you need to
I'm going to use the next few months to
work on becoming a little bit quicker.
I'm not slow at all, but I would love to
get that first step just a hair faster.
What is the highlight of your career up
to this point?
Geez, I have so many great memories. I
don't know where to start. At Troy, I
had three touchdowns this year and I
felt like I couldn't be stopped. I also
had a good game at LSU this year, and
their secondary is legit so that was
What is your favorite NFL team?
Don't really have one.
Who is your favorite NFL player?
Really just all of the Pro Bowl type of
wide receivers. I try to watch their
game, take notes and apply it to my
What do you enjoy the most about playing
I just enjoy the brotherhood we have in
the locker room. Just knowing these guys
will be there for me on and off the
field for the rest of my life is a
What are your hobbies?
Pretty much I only really have time for
school, sleeping and football. I'd have
to say my favorite hobby is taking a
What is your plan for the future?
Play in the NFL
What five words best describe you?
Hungry to achieve great success.
