What makes you a top prospect at your position  in the 2023 NFL Draft?

What makes me a top prospect in my position is my height and speed which can’t be coached. Also my play making ability.

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

I didn’t become interested into football heavily until my junior year of high school.

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

One thing NFL teams should know about me is I am willing to work and will do what ever it is the team needs me to do.

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

A cause I would donate to is helping decrease poverty or anything to help underprivileged children

What is the best advice you have ever received?

Best advice I’ve received is “you have 2 ears and 1 mouth so listen twice as much then you speak” or “every action doesn’t need a reaction”

Who was your childhood hero?

Childhood hero is my Mother. She showed me that no matter what the circumstances are there is always a way to make something happen. 

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

That’s hard to pick just one but I’m going to say Richard Bailey

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

I had to overcome multiple things in my life but the one that molded me into who I am today was me not being able to go where I planned for college and coming to SC State and sitting out my first year because of grades. That was an eye opener that if you don’t do what you need to do. You can’t do the things that you want to do. 

What is your favorite snack food?

My favorite snack either fruit snacks or oatmeal cream pies

What is the best part of football?

Best part of football is winning. We put in work week in, and week out at practice, weights, meetings and class on top of all that. So winning is most definitely the best part it’s like a relief after a long week of everything. 

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

Kobe Bryant just because that was one of my role models growing up and it would be an honor to meet him and just have a conversation about his work ethic and winning mentality. Randy Moss- in my opinion he is the greatest receiver to play football so I would love to get some advice from him and get a better understanding of the game from a hall of fame wide receiver. Jeff Bezos- the richest man in the world so that would be self explanatory as to why I would want to have dinner with him.
