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

My ability to get upfield with my twitch and quickness in pass rush situations and run stunts with different combinations of power and speed moves. My knowledge and experience give me confidence that I can go into the NFL right away and contribute to whatever team decides to draft me. 

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

I was 5 years old when I was introduced to the sport and have been in love with it since.

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

Helping kids who have lost a parent or both parents.

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

My dad passed away in 2021 during my season.

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

(Purdue) Probably one of the most boring college towns in the country but it forced me and my former teammates to bond with one another and make the most out of it. I have lifelong friends from there. 

If you could have any franchise restaurant in your house what would it be?

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

  1. My Dad – Because I want to have another conversation with him and tell him about all the good things going on that we dreamed about. 
  2. Lebron James – I want to know his mindset towards health and sustainability. Also, what he does is to always be ready to perform in big moments. I have a bunch of questions to ask about the big games he was in and what his thought process was like. 
  3. Aaron Donald – I would talk to him about how he transformed his body from college to now and how he stays consistent year after year with all the success he’s had.
