I enjoyed being a Michigan State Spartan, and I feel my statistics and leadership at Michigan State speak for themselves. I had always hoped from the very beginning that I would be given the opportunity to be a four-year starter at MSU. I feel that I earned my time between the pipes, and I wish I had been given the opportunity to finish what I started. I am proud that the Toledo Storm see the kind of potential in me that I see in myself. I am thrilled to be a part of this very successful organization. I wish my teammates at Michigan State all the best."
