What makes you a top prospect at your position  in the 2022 NFL Draft?

What makes me a top prospect is being able to not only win one on ones but also read zones. Being able to not only run routes but play a big part of the running game and block in the box or space. 

At what age were you first interested in the sport of football?

I was six years old

What is one thing that NFL teams should know about you?

NFL teams should know they are getting someone that can come in and produce right away. If they need a slot I can handle all those needs just like Kupp and Chris Godwin. 

If you could donate to one cause in the world, what would it be? 

Cancer research 100%

What is the best advice you have ever received?

God. Family. Education. Everything else. In that order keeping it that way always produces results.

Who was your childhood hero?

My brother and loved Kobe. 

Who is the most underrated teammate in your locker room at your school?

Mr. Gentry. Worked hard all the time knowing he would never play. Nicest dude I have ever met. 

What is your biggest pet peeve?

When people burp and don’t say excuse me. 

Overcoming adversity is what defines character, what was the hardest moment in your life to overcome?

Losing my scholarship, getting a DUI and losing our house in HS. 

Tell me something about your school and why it is so special to you?

Put me in the best position to grow as a man and know who I am besides a football player. 

What is your favorite snack food?

French Fries

What is the best part of football?

Hanging with teammates and the memories you make.

If you could sell yourself in one sentence what would you say?

I am ready, dependable and accountable. 

If you could compare your play to one player in the NFL who would it be?

Chris Godwin

If you could have dinner with three people dead or alive, who would it be and why?

Jesus, Kobe & Denzel. They are all smart and all knowing. Would love to pick their brains how to learn, improve and love.
