Please describe your Future Games Experience
+ It was a great experience! I got to play against top talent in my class and some top 2019's that were uncommitted. Also with so many scouts out there I got a lot of exposure.

Would you recommend to 2019 & 2020 grads to play in the Future Games? 
+ Yes! It's a great way to improve your recruitment stock and play against the best of the best talent that's in your class and not committed yet.

What is your timeline for making a decision? 
+ I will probably make a decision in the fall, definitely before the fall ends.

What are you looking for in your college choice? 
+ The size of the school doesn't really matter to me that much. If the school is comfortable for me and I feel like it's home that's the school I will pursue. I don't want to go too close to home but it'll just be wherever I feel comfortable. Key things I'm looking for in a program for me is a team that's a brotherhood and wants to win, a place where I can develop, a place where I can get a good education, and a school that wants to work and win a ring. I want to go to a place where I can be a threat early and help my team win. Also, to play as soon as possible when I get there.
What do you feel are your strengths as a player? 
+ My speed it's just something you can't teach and I try to showcase it every opportunity I have. Also my athleticism is a strength for me.

  Are there any areas of your game you would like to improve?
 + I want to improve on every asset in my game. Everyday I want to be better than what I was before.

What travel organization do you play for and/or what have you learned this summer? 
+ I play for the Virginia Cardinals. I learned that the little things you do on and off the field significantly separates you from others.
