What kind of music are you listening to right now?
"I listen to everything. Two albums just got released - Kendrick Lamar and Meek Mill. That's what I'm listening to right now, a lot of their stuff."
What do you listen to in the locker room before games to get hyped up?
"I like to watch YouTube videos, like pump-up videos. There's a video that I tweeted last year that talks about 'When you want to succeed as bad as you want to breathe, then you'll be successful.'"
Do you have a favorite tattoo?
"My stomach, because it hurt the most. It's like a mural of good and evil."
As season winds down, how important is it to finish strong for the seniors?
"When I'm a senior, I'd hope that the young guys would take every game serious and finish the season as hard as they could."
Does your career go by real fast?
"It's funny that you ask me that. Today, in the locker room, we talked about stuff we've done with (Director of Sports Enhancement Jerry Schmidt) and how he brought back a certain lift today. I said we used to do that when I was a freshman. It goes by really fast and I tell (Sterling Shepard) and those guys to make sure they take advantage of every day around here."
