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

            Ability to make contested catches. Not a burner, but will catch everything thrown to me and can make a couple guys miss in space.

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

            Earliest organized football was in the 3rd grade. Don’t remember a point where I wasn’t interested in the game of football.

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

            Will catch anything and everything thrown to me. Takes pride in contested catches.

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

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

            Battling hereditary mental health issues throughout high school and the first half of college.

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

            Standard of excellence in the classroom and on the field. “Best of both worlds” is corny but is true at Duke.

What is the best part of football? 

            The locker room after a weekday practice or after a W. Nothing like it

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