What makes you a top prospect at your position in the 2024 NFL Draft?
I know if I was given an opportunity to showcase my talent to recruits. And where I come from not a lot of young men make it past 21. Football is kind of my life. And I know like I’m better or can compete with anyone in this world. Just because where I’m from or the exposure I couldn’t get, shouldn’t dictate if I can’t have a chance.
At what age were you first interested in the sport of football?
Since I was a young kid. When I was 4 or 5 years old and started playing whenever I was old enough for my youth city team.
