“I committed to University of Guelph was because of the atmosphere, the vibe that I got on my official visit and the academic support,” explained the offensive standout of his decision.  “Honestly, It felt like a place that I could spend my next four to five years at due to the fact that it felt so much like home. In terms of football they’re one of, if not the best, in the OUA and I really liked how they take care of their players on and off the field.”
