"My goal was to become a better person, a better athlete and just perfect my game. Then the recruiting when the guys come off the field," he said. "Like right now, we're done, so I'm probably going to start recruiting. Everyone that's undecided, everybody. I'm just being a sponge right now and enjoying it."
