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

I think my size and athleticism first, but my ability to press at the LOS, be physical with the receivers, and patience gives me an advantage over other corners. 

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

I’ve been playing football since I was 5. I loved the game since then. 

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

I am ready to learn and adapt to the game. I am hardworking and determined to be the best me that I can be. 

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

If I could donate to a cause in the world it would be to the American Cancer Society and the Mental Health Foundation.

What is the best advice you have ever received? 

“Control what you can control, stay focused and God will take care of the rest”

Who was your childhood hero? 

LaDainian Tomlinson & Kobe Bryant 

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

Quinton Hyde 

What is your biggest pet peeve? 

Racial Profiling 

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

After losing a close friend of mine the year before my sophomore year of college I became depressed and wanted to give up.  I realized giving up wasn’t going to help anybody or the situation. He always told me that I could make it in football and to keep going and that’s one of the reasons why I haven’t stopped. 

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

My school is special to me because of the Midnight Movie and Black Student Union 

What is your favorite snack food? 

Haribo Gummies 

What is the best part of football? 

Forcing a turnover and turning up with the Defense 

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

I want to be the greatest at what I do and I’m ready to learn and grow by any means. 

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

Jalen Ramsey

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

Kobe Bryant, because he’s always been my favorite player since I was a kid. I would like to know how he was so mentally tough and what kept him rooted.  Lebron James because I want to know how he keeps his body healthy after all these years and still performing at a high level. Also my dad and step dad because they are their favorite players and the GOAT debate would be crazy !
