On playing for Billy Donovan at Florida:

“Man, he was one of the best coaches I’ve ever played for. I loved playing for him because he never guaranteed me anything. That’s really the main reason why I went there. He told me I had to earn everything and he was going to put me in the best situation to succeed but he said it wasn’t going to be easy and I had to work hard for it. And I appreciated that from Day One and he’s always been like a second dad to me.”
