How’d you end up at your current school? What was the recruiting process like? 

ANS: My recruiting coordinator came to my high school to see me at the time, and I didn’t even know that the school existed. It came to March/April of my senior year, and I had a couple of offers from other schools, but I knew that I wanted to stay in-state. That left me with Hanover and Trine. I took a visit to both, and Trine felt more comfortable with me and I ended up picking Trine. It was the best decision of my life.


What gives you an advantage over other athletes at your position?

ANS: The traits that separate me from other pro prospects at my position are my work ethic, my ability to take criticism and fix my mistakes, and my ability to learn the playbook quickly. Also, with my size, frame, and speed I know that I can compete with the top prospects in my draft class. 


What does being a student of a game mean to you?

ANS: Being a student of a game means that I can take criticism and fix the proper things. I can work with other players and improve together. Being a student of the game, also means that I can study film and fix what needs to be fixed. This also applies to taking mental reps when I am not in the game.


How does being a running back reflect itself in your personal life?

ANS: I believe that the running back position is one of the hardest positions to play on a football field. With that being said, the fight to be the number one backer in the backfield is what keeps me going every time I step on the field because I want to dominate everyone that I compete against. This has been my motto throughout my personal life because it allows me to always give it my all no matter what and to compete against each other.


How would you describe your work ethic?

ANS: I am a workhorse! If I want something, I will work my behind off until I get it. I know that no matter what happens I will always outwork the person next to me and this has gotten me to where I am right now in life. I never get complacent!


What do you consider to be one of the more important things you learned from the coaching staff?

ANS: The most important thing that I have learned from my coaching staff is that no matter what the current situation looks like, KEEP GOING! You don’t ever know when you’ll be the next man up, so don’t quit.


What would you consider to be your biggest accomplishment in your sports career so far?

ANS: My biggest accomplishment in my sporting career would be my growth since my freshman year of college till now. I was able to put on about 70 lbs of muscle since my freshman year and become faster. While being doubted by a ton of people.


How did you hear about the National Scouting Combine?

ANS: I heard about the National Scouting Combine through my soon-to-be agent, Donald Felice.


Why did you choose the National Scouting Combine?

ANS: I chose the National Scouting Combine because I want the opportunity to be able to showcase my skills to make it to the next level. And the National Scouting Combine helps me to do just that.


What do you hope to show people at the combine?

ANS: I hope to show scouts that with my size and athletic ability I am able to compete against the top prospects in my draft class, while putting out amazing numbers.


What was your Major?

ANS: Undergraduate; Mechanical Engineering. Grad School; MBA.


If you could make a positive impact on all of society what would it be and why?


ANS: I would go back to my home country (Nigeria) and rebuild the school system. I want to do this because it allows me to be able to give back to my country in tenfolds and help the children out.


What is something unique about you that people would find interesting?


ANS: People typically find me being from a foreign country interesting. I was born in Nigeria, and I moved to the states with my family in 2007. People typically say that I don’t sound like I am from Nigeria because I don’t have an accent and that is really interesting to them.


If you had the opportunity to play another sport professionally, what sport would you choose?


ANS: I would choose hockey because it is similar to football apart from the fact that they are on ice.


Are you involved in mentoring, a charity or do you “give back” or “pay it forward” in your community?

ANS: Yes, I volunteer often in the community, to help out at my church or with setting up events in town.
