* 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.”
