Q: What goals did you set and/or accomplish in your final collegiate season?

Go undefeated in the regular season, make 1st team All-Conference, and Make it back to the National Championship and win it all this year.

Q: What would your coaches and teammates say about the type of player you are?

My coaches and teammates would say I’m a great player to have around with a high football IQ. They would also probably say I’m a funny guy on and off the field, and I play with a chip on my shoulder.

Q: When you are studying film, what do you focus on to improve your game?

When studying practice film I look at where I can adjust my route running and body position while blocking to help me maneuver on the field. When watching game film on the other team, I look for player’s tendencies and things the defense does to give away coverage or blitz (whether that’s spinning safeties, bumping linebackers, or depth/alignment that players are playing at). 

Q: What separates you from the other pro prospects at your position?

My ability in the open field and in tight spaces separates me from other prospects. Also, my knowledge of the game gives me an advantage.

Q: What is your offseason plan to train and prepare for professional opportunities?

I will be training back home in Chicago with my trainer Edwon Simmons and in Houston with my trainer Mario Ford, in which they will be preparing me for the next level.

Q: What kind of strengths and abilities will you bring to a team that will stand out both on and off the field?

I bring quickness, elusiveness, playmaker, big plays, grit, ambition, high football IQ, and experience. Off the field I am not a distraction and would like to give back to the community of Chicago and be a positive role model.

Q: What is your final pitch to the NFL or any other pro leagues?

I’m a hard worker on and off the field, team player, learn things quick and a pillar of my community.
