"I'm not afraid of failing. I just work hard so I slim the chances of failing period."

"I hate having all the keys to be successful and not taking advantage of it... that [South Carolina] game really helped me be successful the next game."

"This week I have to step my game up some more."

"Mostly because I've grown up in an atmosphere with professional athletes... just being a freshman is me being a freshman. I didn't choose to be a freshman. I have to be. If I'm ready I'm ready. I just tried to take charge and do what I'm suppose to do."

"Being a coach's son, I kind of know where the coaches stand. If they say to do something you do it. They aren't just saying it just because... they are telling you for a reason."

"That's the key to my success. I listen, I study hard, and I execute."

"Russell [Wilson] was the first person who took me under his wing and I learned all the formations and stuff with him... I have respect for him."

"Once I get in there I'll give you a really good review of how I felt, but I've been to South Carolina and that was pretty big."

"It's going to be rocking, but I'll be ready."
