He has really good feet and hands. Both of his offensive-line coaches played in the NFL, so he has a good fundamental base and should make a good adjustment to the blocking schemes in college. He’s a good kid who is easy to coach.” … Will be a two-year letterman on the track and field team … Competes in the shot put and discus throw … Honor-roll student who participates in a magnet program for engineering studies … An uncle, Leroy Warner, played football at Fort Valley State … Decided on Kentucky over Mississippi State and Duke.
