The 6-foot-3, 230 pound Russell runs the 40-yard dash in 4.7 seconds. He believes that with the proper playing time he could provide great production from the tight end position.
"Last year, my coach didn't really give me the time of day," Russell said. "Several players on our team had the talent to play but were not given the opportunity. I am starting this year and expect to play more with our new head coach."
"I would love to play with a D-1 school. A&M and Texas are both really good schools," Russell said. "They both have good tradition and good sports programs. Their coaches are nice. I have good chemistry with them. It feels like home."
Despite this feeling, Russell says he doesn't have an overall leader.
"I need to get more familiar with the other schools out there," Russell said. "I am looking for a good academic program with good Christian values. I would like to end up with the school I can help the most."
