Just one day after Brett Kollmann took to their airwaves to sing the praises of Christian Hackenberg as a franchise quarterback prospect, the afternoon drive-time crew on Sports Radio 610 had an interview with the man himself.

No, not Brett. Christian Hackenberg. But I like where your head is at.

As you'd expect, Hackenberg was asked about the prospect of reuniting with Bill O'Brien in the NFL as a member of your Houston Texans. Hackenberg did an admirable job giving a lengthy, diplomatic, mostly non-responsive answer before getting around to addressing the question he was asked.

"Obviously, it would be awesome to have another opportunity to play with Coach (O’Brien), be reunited with [him], and the whole staff. A lot of [the Texans' coaches] left [Penn State]. A lot of those guys recruited me and built a great relationship up there.  But I think ultimately, the goal for me is making sure that I am the most well-rounded prospect I can be, as prepared as I can be to impress as many teams as I need to and let the cards fall where they may."
