Q: Tell us about your college career and what the recruiting process was like. Why did you choose Presbyterian?
A: My college career was interesting as I got to come in and get to play as a freshman and after that I became a 3 time All Conference receiver from my sophomore year to to my senior year. Getting recruited out of high school was tough for me because, schools didn’t want to offer me since I was short but, I proved I was elite on the field. Coming out I only had one Division 1 offer and 1 division 2 offer. I chose Presbyterian College because, they believed in my ability.
