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

I’m an all-around player that can play the outside position while also playing the nickel, slot corner. My style of play is smooth, and I use my opponent film and my IQ to prepare myself to put me and my team in the best position to execute.

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

The age of 6. I started playing Detroit Pal when I turned 6

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

 I’m hungry and driven. I work day in and day out to make sure my opportunity get taken advantage of.

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

 I would donate to the Rheumatoid Arthritis Foundation. My grandma is suffering from a disease she encountered 30 plus years ago. Seeing her suffer has really motivated me and made me want to help the ones fighting with such a devastating and traumatic disease.

What is the best advice you have ever received?

The best advice I ever received was from my dad. He sat me down after a basketball game and asked, “did you love basketball like you love football” I told him no. So he asked me “would you want to fight for a spot of 15 or 53 if the love not the same?” Ever since then I’ve stuck to football.

Who was your childhood hero?

My Uncle Butch and Chauncey Billups. Two down to earth humble men.

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

Theodore Tate. Teddy we call him. 6’4 190 Wr. Pure beast and smooth like a snake.

What is your biggest pet peeve?

Someone quitting when there’s still work to be done.

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

 Being homeless and still going to two different colleges at the same time just to make sure my dreams for a better living for me and my family stayed in the atmosphere.

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

My school is actually a family. We make sure that we are fed sheltered and loved unconditionally. It’s truly a blessing to have a family that really cares for you and has your back no matter the situation.

What is your favorite snack food?

Candy, I love skittles and some nerds. Nerds make me smart.

What is the best part of football?

Celebrating a big hit, touchdown, or win. Also the atmosphere. It’s special. All of those are the best. 

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

I’m the truest definition humble and confident.

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

I play sound and patient like Xavien Howard.

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

Deion Sanders, Randy Moss, and Dr. Sebi
