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

I’m an all purpose back who can succeed in multiple offensive schemes, I can catch the ball out of the backfield or in the slot. Most importantly I think my vision sets me apart.

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

I started playing when I was 8 but I wouldn’t say I was truly interested until I was around 11,12 that’s when I really started to look more at X’s and O’s, its also when I first started playing RB

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

That I am a passionate player and person. I care a lot about the work that goes into what we do. 

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

Homes for the homeless.

What is the best advice you have ever received? 

We had a speaker come in my junior year of high school he spoke to the team. “Greatness isn’t temporary”. 

Who was your childhood hero? 

My childhood heroes were my big brothers.

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

I’m still very new the whole team actually hasn’t even arrived on campus. Out of the few guys here that ive worked out with I know we’ve got a strong receiving core

What is your biggest pet peeve? 

Anything that flies. Mainly bugs but I don’t trust birds either.

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

Coming back from this hip injury.

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

Its very close to home and we run a pro style offense. It would be special because for my last year of college everyone can pretty much make it to a game.

What is your favorite snack food? 

Granola Bars

What is the best part of football? 

Scoring touchdowns. A lot of other good stuff but points decide games.

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

Being great at what you do starts with caring about what you do, I take pride in my craft.

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

Melvin Gordon, I’ve been studying him since Wisconsin.

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

Shaq, Malcolm x, Ronald Reagan. It will be a tense conversation in the beginning. Shaq is just Shaq and I’m sure he’ll lighten the mood.
