Intended major: Undecided
Something that not many people know about you: “I can play the drums.”
Best football moment: “I’d have to say this summer, working out with my teammates and just working towards a goal.”
Role model: “I’d have to say my head coach, Coach [DaLawn] Parrish, because he’s been through a lot and he faced adversity. Every time you turn around, it’s something, and he’s fighting through it. He’s just a really good person. He doesn’t let adversity keep him down.”
Why Maryland? “I think Maryland is the best fit for me because it’s a DI program and I really meshed with the coaches from Day One. [Maryland offensive coordinator James] Franklin is a down-to-earth coach. He seems like the kind of person that, if you get away from home, you could go to him or Coach [Ralph] Friedgen and talk to them. They’ll explain things the best way they can. You also have Coach Ryan Steinberg -- he helps out a lot with the recruiting. So it’s a lot of things that are important and I feel good about. I think Maryland is the best fit because of that. And also because of the location. It’s right near D.C., and there are a lot of good jobs in D.C. So I think those were some of the best reasons for me to go.”
