Wednesday was the first time the media was able to talk to true freshman Tejan Koroma, who started at center against UConn. As you can see, the 6-foot, 280-pounder brought a pretty formidable gun show with him.

Koroma also revealed his nickname: "Pitbull." No, not for his rapping ability. Koroma said early in fall camp one of the coaches said, "Look at that pitbull!" in reference to the freshman's direct way of attacking his opponent. So the nickname stuck.
