Q. What was the selling point in choosing Clemson?A. My grandparents loved it here and I love my grandparents a lot, so having them feel so strongly about Clemson really helped steer my decision to play here.

Q. How are you feeling and how is your recovery?A. I’m feeling well, but it’s an injury that takes times to heal, so I am taking it day by day and not rushing the process. The focus is getting myself healthy, not so much getting back on the field.

Q. What has impressed you the most with this team?A. Everyone playing together. We have a good group of wide receivers out there and I like seeing them play and what they can do. I like seeing everyone having fun.

Q. What has been your favorite experience as a Tiger?A. My birthday game last year against NC State when I had two touchdown catches. When I dove, full extension, and came up with that catch, I got jacked up.

Q. What is your best asset as a wide receiver?A. Running good routes. People see me as a downfield threat, and speed helps with that, but to have the ability to have good breaks, use your hands and keep the cornerback guessing can allow for that separation for big plays to happen.

Q. What jacks you up more…a big gain or a big block?A. Big gain, for sure. It always feels good to lay it on someone, but to make a big play for your team and hear the crowd get amped up has more of an effect on me.

Q. Who is your favorite co-offensive coordinator?A. Haha, I don’t have a favorite. They are both great coaches, so my favorite coach would have to be my receivers coach just to avoid catching any heat.

Q. Outside of football, how do you dedicate your time?A. School. Education. They are big parts in this experience. I’m a student-athlete before I’m a football player.

Q. If you could have dinner with any three people, who would they be?A. LeBron James, Meek Mill and Rihanna. And if you can pass along that request to Rihanna, I would really appreciate that.
