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

Becoming a better overall wide receiver and return specialist. Learning the game and raising my football IQ. Being able to read defenses and understand which route or releases I need to take when the ball is snapped. I believe I became a better football player but I still am learning. When I think goals I don’t look at stats, I look at the overall picture of becoming a better player and person.

Q: How do you think you took advantage of the extra year of eligibility to increase your chances of going pro?

Getting more time to work on my craft, exposure and showing my talents and abilities in these bowl games. These games are really helping me with my chances of playing at the next level. Showcasing that I’m a top player in the country competing against some of the best in college football.

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

They would all say that I’m enthusiastic, I do things right on and off the field. That I’m a good teammate and I want to see everyone win, I want what’s best for everyone. Also no matter what the situation is I stay positive through it.

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

The main thing I try to look at are what do the defenses really like to do. Are they man heavy? Do they like to play a lot of zone/tampa? How loose are they with the safeties in the slot, where are the linebackers alignments. How well does the defense shift side to side? How deep do the safeties like to play? I like to look at all those things going into the week that way I know the plays we will be running mainly and can work on them as well as fixing route depths or having a pre-snap read on choice/option routes. I look at taking what the defense is going to give me.

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

I’m a very fast learner. I can play inside or outside, travel with or away from the strength, I can be put in motion or come out the backfield. I could stretch the defense with my speed across the field or down the field. Doing things right off the field, always being available, not getting myself in trouble. Being reliable and dependable, a team player. Being mature and understanding I’m not going to always get the ball, some games it will be the slots day, some days it will be the outside receivers day and some days we may just be running the ball. Realizing winning the game is what the team is trying to accomplish and how best can that happen. Some games 12 personnel may be better than 10 personnel, really just understanding the game and not too worried about me personally but at the same time when I am on the field be selfish when the ball is in the air, make plays and maximize my opportunities.

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

Continue to train and work on speed. My speed is what will get me to the NFL. I had an NFL scout at the FCS Bowl tell me next year I’ll be one of the fastest guys in the league and mentioned myself in the same sentence as Tyreek Hill which is a major compliment. Plyometrics and a lot of yoga, stretching to stay mobile and help avoid injuries. Strength training, route running as well as catching and working on my feet. I catch about 2,000 balls a day rather it’s footballs or tennis balls. My main focus is to keep balling in these bowl games, and be ready to put up great numbers on my NFL Pro Day which will happen.

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

On the field will definitely be my explosive play making. Getting first downs keeping the drive alive, extending short catches with my speed into big runs, being able to stretch the field sideline to sideline getting the edge and putting pressure on safeties. Definitely my speed. Off the field it will be showing others how to represent the organization, being an example/role model and giving back to communities.

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

I’m a man of character who have overcome a lot of adversity that has been out of my control. I stayed prayerful, I’ve stayed consistent, and persistent. When most would have given up I kept going. Investing and believing in me will be one of the best decisions an organization will make.
