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

The goals I set for my final college season was to win the conference and to become bowl game eligible, become all conference by the end of the year, and to get 65 catches and 800 yards on the year.

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

My coaches and teammates would describe my style of play as very relaxed, smooth, and effortless. I’m the type of player that always stays calm and doesn’t really ever feel worried about anything.

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

When I study film, I look at where the soft spots are on the zone. What kind of technique the safety is playing whether it’s catch technique, or where they like to put hands on or not and figure what weakness of their game I can expose. I also look for if that corner or safety stays on one side of the field or travels the whole game because that can give me small hints to how much man or zone I’ll get in that game.

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

The things that separates me from others is that you can put me anywhere on the field, whether I’m in the slot, the outside, or the third inside receiver in a trips look. You can also put me in motion to move the defense around to get a certain look you want towards my side or away from my side and I also take pride into blocking.

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

My off-season plan is to train in Houston with my dad. He played in the NFL for a couple good amount of years and he just got inducted into the chiefs hall of fame, so he will be able to help me get better at a faster rate just because he knows so much about the game and knows what to do and what not to do.

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

Off the field, I’m a locker room guy. I get along with everybody and can make things better if the team energy or moral is down. On the field, I impact the game in a couple different ways whether it’s making those big 3rd and 4th down catches, or making that block on the edge to spring a 60 yard run and also can impact the game by playing any special teams.

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

My final pitch to all NFL teams and all of the other leagues out there is that D2 college football players can ball too. Even though we may not have the resources as power 5, there are a lot of gems/diamonds in the rough that can help your organization and I am one of them.
