You can feed a bobcat all the chili it wants. That don't mean it's going to crap out diamonds.

Have the coaches mentioned using you on offense?  I have seen several highlights of you on the other side of the ball, is that something that is in the cards?

Are you aware that this community discussed you and vouched for your abilities ad nauseum leading up to you getting your offer? Now that you know, would you agree that we should be on the staff payroll to help recruit and coach?

Did anyone from within the Ohio State program give you any particularly great advice on how to use the desire to get a scholarship offer to become a better person and a better football player?

Ohio State is known for having a number of outstanding linebackers over the years. How does it feel to be a part of a tradition that includes guys like Chris Spielman, Andy Katzenmoyer, AJ Hawk, James Laurinaitis, Ryan Shazier, and SO MANY others?

First things first...congrats on the offer and becoming part of the class. Buckeye nation welcomes you with open arms.

And for the question...now that you have finalized your recruitment, where does your focus shift going forward? Do you see yourself being a leader of this class in terms of reaching out to other targets and building the strongest class possible?

First, congrats on the offer and commitment and welcome to Buckeye Nation.

What player, collegiate or professional, would you compare your game to? Or who do you try to base your game off of?

Glad you are a Buckeye Nick. Can you take us through the process of your recruitment (the ups and downs) and when were you sure you had achieved what the coaches expected of you to earn your offer? Secondly, what are your educational goals?

Do you have some great nick name you go by or can you help us pick one out for you?  Carlos Hyde has the best so far with El Guapo, but we will give you a chance.
