* your biggest role model
CM: “My parents. My parents are my biggest role models, because of everything they’ve done for me. They’re always there for me no matter what happens. They raised me well.”
* your favorite motto
CM: “Just bring your heart.”
* your superstitions before games
CM: “I listen to a lot of rap music. I like to listen to Lil Wayne, because he gets me motivated.”
* how has sports impacted your life
CM: “I’ve been playing football and basketball since I was 6-years-old. It has made a big impact on my life, because I committed to the University of California-Berkeley for football. I’m a walk-on to play basketball there. Sports has had a real big impact. It also keeps me out of trouble.”
* what keeps you motivated in sports
CM: “Just knowing that I’m the only one in my family that went to college. I worked hard to make it where I am at now.”
* a failure that you experienced, which has made you a better athlete today
CM: “Every time we lose a game, I play extra hard. I do that, so I won’t have to feel the feeling of losing again.”
* going to Oak Ridge Military Academy
CM: “Academics are excellent. I’m making A’s and B’s, which I wasn’t making my first two years of high school. Academics at Oak Ridge has put me where I need to be for college.”
* why did you choose California
CM: “When I went out there, they showed me the most love really. And they have the No. 1 degree [communications] in the nation. The coaches and players have a really close relationship, which I liked. You don’t see that with all schools.”
* playing for football coach Jeff Tedford next year
CM: “It will be wonderful. He took me around in California, and I’ve never been to California before [the trip]. He took me to San Francisco, where his house is, and he has such a huge house. I just love the guy. He really made me feel like I was back at home in North Carolina.”
* playing for men’s basketball coach Mike Montgomery next year
CM: “I haven’t talked to him yet. But coach Tedford said if I wanted to play both, I could play both. My coaches say I’m talented to play both. But it’s going to be a lot of work and a lot of studying. However, I think I can do it.”
