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

The goals I set for myself this year I didn’t accomplish them. I had some setbacks, but I think I did improve on a lot of things during the season.

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

They would that I am a student of the game and my work ethic is out the roof.

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

I watch film week and week out, that’s something I pride myself on is knowing my opponent. Being able to be a versatile player that’s catching the ball out the back and the slot.

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

I know I’m very capable of getting a handoff out of the backfield and taking it 75 yards and I can also take bubble screen 75 yards as well. I think I’m a very versatile player that can be used many different ways.

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

Using speed to beat defenders, quickness getting in and out of my cuts/breaks. Off the field, I love giving back to my communities, that’s some things I like doing so any organization that gets me they are getting a true leader on and off the field.

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

I just want an opportunity to pursue my dreams of becoming a professional athlete.
