What makes you a top prospect at your position in the 2022 NFL Draft?
I am a top prospect at my position in the 2022 NFL Draft because I am not one dimensional and I am versatile. I have the ability to play in both a 3-4 and 4-3 defense. I also am a player who consistently shows up in the run and pass game.

Tell me something about your school and why it is so special to you?
Morehead State University is a small school located in Morehead, Kentucky. Morehead is special to me because it’s a place where the whole town shows up on game days. Also, with it being a small school it’s easy to meet new people.

If you could have dinner with three people dead or alive, who would it be and why?
If I could have dinner with any three people dead or alive it would be my dad, uncle, and my grandfather.My reason for choosing these three men is because they have all helped shape me into the man I am today and I never had the opportunity to sit down with all three of them at once
