Exclusive Interview: NT Lamar Divens
Michael Kranzler: Coming out of high school, Vanderbilt and Ole Miss were in a bit of a recruiting battle to win your services. What led you to sign with Vanderbilt?
Lamar Divens: It was closest to home, plus my girlfriend was pregnant with my son at the time and I wanted to stay close to them.
MK: What was it like playing with Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, who is the cousin of your new teammate, Antonio Cromartie?
LD: It was fun. He was always just joking and laughing all the time.
MK: Have any of the veterans started to mentor you on the field?
LD: I think we're a pretty close-knit bunch of guys. Everybody tries to help out everybody. I take pointers from what everybody has to say.
MK: What do you feel is your biggest strength?
LD: Stopping the run.
MK: What do you need to improve upon most in order to have a good chance at making this team?
LD: Just understanding the playbook and reading my keys.
MK: What do you like to do in your free time?
LD: I just like to hang out with friends. I just enjoy being around my friends.
