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

What makes me a top prospect is my athleticism, versatility, strength, and agility. I can play guard/tackle and center. My work ethic and effort are what separate me.

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

Football has been special to me almost my whole life but I didn’t get to play organized football until middle school. So about 12 years old.

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

That I am willing to take on any challenge and outwork anyone on your team.

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

Homelessness and Hunger in Nigeria 

Who was your childhood hero? 

My Dad is my childhood hero! He is one of my biggest inspirations. 

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

Cliff Funderburk 

What is your biggest pet peeve? 

When I see people who complain about where they are in life and do nothing to change it. Laziness and not working hard 

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

Having to work my way up on the depth chart and earn a starting position.

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

I love the environment, TAMUC has a championship culture and there is a certain standard you have to live up to being a player there. 

What is your favorite snack food? 

Spicy Nacho Doritos  

What is the best part of football? 

The camaraderie and being on the team. I have made life-long friendships playing football. 

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

That I am a hell of an athlete and you don’t want to miss out on this opportunity. 

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

Isaiah Wynn, Andrus Peat 

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

Kanye West, Kobe Bryant, Laurent Duvernay-Tardif! Kanye West and Kobe Bryant are two of the greatest to ever do it and I would pick their mind and see what drives them to be great. Tardif is an NFL player who is also a doctor and that is something I dream to accomplish as well.
