“I’ll take the comp but at the same time, I haven’t played another position so I don’t even know if I can do what Taysom Hill does. I’d like to think that I can because I’m an athletic person and I think that I can play any position, but I know I can play quarterback. I know I can do that. And then [scouts] will be like, ‘Are you willing to do what Taysom Hill does?’ And I’m like, ‘I’m willing to do it! I can’t tell you how good I am at it.'”

“Baltimore is a great place. Lamar Jackson at quarterback, he’s going to lead the Ravens to a Super Bowl, and at the end of the day, I want to win. I want to be successful. It’s a team sport. Him at quarterback and me at corner, I feel like there’s going to be some money in marketing.”

“It means a lot. I’m extremely grateful for the timing of the situation. It worked out. So extremely grateful for that, but also remembering that I came here for a reason. I came here to serve my country. I definitely wouldn’t want to spend four years here, learn all this great knowledge and not put it to work, so it’s definitely the best of both worlds for me because professional football is definitely something I would love to pursue. I’m hungry for it. It’s just the best of both worlds for me.”
