Me: So it’s been a while since our last interview. Since then, you’ve gotten a 4th star on Scout, you’ve been ranked 92nd in the nation according to the ESPN150, and you’ve gotten a bunch of big-time offers. How does that make you feel?
David: It makes me feel great! Everything that I put in, blood, sweat, and tears for is somewhat here [now]. But I’m not finished!
Me: You weren’t the only offensive lineman who was ranked in the ESPN150. All five of Michigan’s o-line commits made the list. How crazy is that?
David: It’s not crazy at all! It shows that we are gonna bring that hard-nosed offensive line back to Ann Arbor. It shows that we are all really good and [it shows] what we do and that we are all hard workers.
Me: Shane Morris is a lucky man, isn’t he?
David: [Laughing] Yeah, better treat us right.
Me: Is it frustrating receiving new offers and phone calls from coaches or is it still fun? Have you ever thought about wavering in your commitment to Michigan?
David: It’s still fun and I’m not wavering at all.
Me: I hear that USC is on you pretty hard. Wolverine Nation has nothing to worry about, do they?
David: [Laughing] They don’t.
Me: What is one thing you think you still need to work on before you get to Michigan?
David: I just wanna get stronger. Other than that, I don’t know.
Me: Are there any prospects you’re working on to get to join you on Team 134?
David: Oh, yeah...Kenton Gibbs when they offer, Ty Isaac, Laquon Treadwell, and Eldridge Massington.
Me: It’s pretty clear to see how Team 134 is so close-knit. Do you like that you’re able to keep in touch with your future teammates like that?
David: Yeah, it’s gonna help us when we get [to Michigan]. I mean, we all already have that brotherly relationship. I found that out when my father passed away and everybody either tweeted or text me...even today JD [Jourdan Lewis] forced me to hug him [laughs].
Me: Any last words?
David: Just know I’m a Michigan Man. I’m coming for [a starting] spot when I step foot in Ann Arbor and I’m ready to win these national championships! GO BLUE!
