Why Wake Forest: "My family is big on education, and Wake Forest offers one of the best educations possible. Winston-Salem is nice too. I liked how the campus is just down the road from downtown. You're close to a lot of fun stuff to do."
Strengths/Improvements: "I've accumulated a lot of knowledge with my Dad being a coach. I'm good at recognizing coverages. At six-foot-five I can see the field well. It's always been a goal of mine to play quarterback, but Wake Forest said they'd give me that opportunity. I'd be very open to a different position if they need me to."
