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

My extra year helped my chances of going pro because it gives off more film of my abilities. This season I’ve lined up at QB,X,Y,Z and B so it shows my versatility. I’ve only been playing WR for 4 years so each practice and game I’ve grown into a better wide receiver. My route running, catching and releases all have improved.

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

My coaches and teammates will say I’m a very passionate and hardworking player. I work my hardest to put the best product on the field to help the teams success. They’ll say I’m more of a lead by example type of player and always about the team not a selfish teammate at all.

The things that I focus on to improve my game are catching the ball working on hand placement, getting in and out my breaks and moves at the top of the route.

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

What separates me from other pro prospects at my position is the understanding of the game. I’ve played quarterback so I can read coverages. I can play many positions which allows me to be moved around and have an understanding of not just one position. My strength and speed combine allowing me to be a hard match up for big or small DBs.

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

My off-season plan is to train hard for 3-4 months down in Florida 6 days a week. Lifting , sprint work and WR training as well.

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

Well on the field I will bring hardworking mindset, leadership ability . Someone with a high ceiling still has a lot of ability at the wide receiver position, can catch the ball well in traffic and the deep ball. Off the field they’ll get someone who is big on family and the community. Not an off the field problem at all, will always be on time to practice, lifts and meetings.

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

Doesn’t matter how you get there, it just matters what you do with the opportunity you’re presented. Any team that chooses me I’m going to do what I have to do to make sure I stay on that team and make a difference.
