“I think he’s playing with a lot of confidence — he’s 230 pounds, guys. I don’t know what he played at last year, but he’s a lot more confident in his body. He’s a lot more confident in his strength and his power, and the last few weeks he’s been playing at a really good level.”Tom Herman, Head Football Coach University of Texas
