What makes you a top prospect at your position in the 2022 NFL Draft?

My work ethic and want to be the best. My size, speed combination and ability to move at my size. Also, my ability to make touch catches and tough plays. Opting out and coming back for another season has helped me earn a draft grade and opportunity to prove to people what more I can do to move up in stock while also looking to compete for a championship.

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

As young as I can remember. I’ve loved football since I was a baby.

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

One thing they should know is that I’m going to put my head down, work and stay humble. The foundation of my game is working hard, putting in the extra hours and staying focused on the goal and dreams I’ve had all my life. I’ve had to work for everything so doing that much more to be successful doesn’t bother me.

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

It’s so many I would donate to but it would probably be to children with Autism or people fighting cancer.

What is the best advice you have ever received?

Control what you can control and let God do the rest. Don’t stress, just have fun with life and the process. What’s written is bound to happen regardless.

Who was your childhood hero?

My Mother

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

Mike Hicks Jr, I’m not sure if he is a specifically underrated teammate but he is definitely a good leader for our defense and for our whole team. 

What is your biggest pet peeve?

People faking who they are.

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

I have had some different moments in life like we all have that were hard moments to overcome. But, I’d probably say the death of a close friend.

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

Fort Valley State University is a Division 2 HBCU school located in middle Georgia. And I love it because of the school spirit and love for athletics that is there as well as the people I have met. It’s special to me because when I transfered to FVSU they welcomed me with open arms and gave me the opportunity to call the place home and I’ll never forget that.

What is your favorite snack food?

Any type of peanut butter cookies or crackers.

What is the best part of football?

To work hard all off-season with your teammates and then see it pay off during the season in front of everyone to watch. To work hard all throughout the week and for it to result in a win. That is a very great feeling.

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

Nobody will work harder or be more committed to being great than me.

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

Kenny Golladay

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

Jesus, Kobe Bryant and Jerry Rice. I picked these three because I feel like a dinner with these three would only have me coming out wiser, as well as motivated to be a better person and competitor.
