I'll be more focused. … I would have to wake up at about 7 to do formations. Then, as an athlete, I would get out of stuff during the middle of the day because of practice. Then [we do] formations before dinner. But we have to wear uniforms. I went to St. Joe's, so a uniform is nothing to me. I would have to keep my room tidy, keep it clean. That's not really a big deal to me. [Having a] shaved head, not a big deal to me. It's just very disciplined."
