Michael Huey: There's a very big difference here. In high school, you play all these different guys and maybe there's a few that are all-region and you go up to them and you blow by them and it feels good, but now you're going against All-Americans.
IT: You and future Longhorn teammate Andre Jones battled at times today. How did that go?
Huey: It went pretty well. He's a very physical guy. I can adjust to that.
IT: Who won the war between you and Jones?
Huey: I would probably have to give him a little more points than me, but not by much. He just had a couple more by me.
IT: Tray Allen seems to be the leader of the six Longhorn commitments here. Do you view him that same way?
Huey: Maybe. I like to call him ‘The Governor.' He goes around, knows people and shakes their hands.
IT: Who was the last Texas coach you talked to?
Huey: Coach McWhorter called me two days before New Year's Eve. We just talked. He gets one call a week and he was just seeing how I'm doing and how everything's going. He told me good luck before I came here.
IT: You and Texas defensive end Eddie Jones were teammates at Kilgore High School. He played in the U.S. Army All-American Bowl last year. Did you consult with him about his experience before you came here?
Huey: Yeah. I texted him and he told me what it was going to be like, how practices went and encouraged me to get ready for a crash course.
IT: Do you have any expectations for this week?
Huey: My main goal is to become a better football player. This is All-American and I want to be a little above that, but I've got a long ways to go still.
