On his workout regime: "Auburn sent me a packet a couple of months back and I've been lifting, doing the workout and running track. I just got through running track."

How did track season go? "It went good. I got first in the 200, second in the 100 and my 4x400 team got third in the state. It was a really windy day. In the 100 I ran a 10.7, and in the 200 I ran a 21.2. (UF signee) Jeff Demps won the 100."

What is the fastest time you've recorded in the 100-meter dash? "I ran a 10.35 about three weeks ago."
