Do you have a favorite school at this point?
I wouldn’t really say I have a favorite school as of now. All the schools that I hear from are tremendous schools and I’m very blessed to be able to have the opportunity that is ahead of me.
Is there a school you wish was recruiting you?
Not really, again I’m just blessed, humble and ecstatic about the schools that have interest in me.

What other sports do you play?
I do play basketball still, just not for our school team. I also throw for our track team too.
What would you like to major in?
I’ve always liked the idea of majoring in pre medicine. If for some reason I don’t want to do that, then I’ve always thought about secondary education so that I could teach and coach.
