What makes you a top prospect at your position in the 2024 NFL Draft

My versatility and size. No one in this draft class at my size has the intangibles to block, catch & run like I do along with the speed I possess. I am a down hill one cut runner who breaks tackles and is known for getting tough yards.

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

I have always been interested in football, but I began playing tackle football at 8 years old. 

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

They should know that they are getting much more than a football player, they are getting an all around great person and a positive addition to the locker room. They are getting a player who gives his all to the organization day in and day out. 

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

I would donate to autism awareness because my brother has Asperger’s and that is a disability many people overlook. 

What is the best advice you have ever received? 

I have received a bunch of great advice in my lifetime, but the best advice is probably from the Bible. 2 Corinthians 5:7 “walk by faith, not by sight”. 

Who was your childhood hero? 

My childhood hero was my father. My mother was also a hero in my life. Watching them work and sacrifice day in and day out so my brother and I could live a good life and get the opportunities necessary to succeed. 

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

The most underrated teammate in my locker room was Talmage Gunther. Many people overlooked his talents, but he came in the facility daily ready to work and give his all to the program. 

What is your biggest pet peeve? 

– people talking or smacking while they eat. Or having no home training, respect or manners. 

Who is your favorite teacher ever?

My 3rd grade teacher Ms. Hunter. She taught me many life lessons that I still apply to daily life today. 

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

I have had to overcome numerous counts of adversity in my life such as death, injuries and many other things that life throws at you. One of the hardest moments I’ve had to overcome is my time at the University of Louisville. I was not playing as much as I wanted to but I remained focused, never lost confidence in myself and continued working hard. 

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

BYU is a very special place in itself. It is an LDS school based on the principles of the morman church. It is special to me because they took a chance on me in high school, and remained loyal to me even when I transferred.
