“It has been very exciting so far,” said the defensive back.  “I am enjoying the whole process and it is very encouraging to me when coaches recognize my hard work and want to recruit me to their school.”

“I am working this offseason to improve my speed, being more physical and cleaning up my footwork,” offered the #CFC100.  “These things should hopefully allow me have a big senior season.”
