1. You were initially going to LSU. What made you decide to come to Memphis?

So Coach Pope and Coach Silverfield, he, they had called me like literally a few days before signing day. Because I, I was off about Alabama at first, that where Coach Pope was at at first, and I got a call that the was here. So I was like, okay. When they called me, they said we want you to come to Memphis, see how it is. I sat down and talked to my mom cause my plan was to go to LSU. Like I knew, I just knew I was going to Baton Rouge. And then after that, after sitting down talking with my parents and stuff, I was like, you know what? I might go to Memphis and see how it is. Cause, you know, being born and raised in Louisiana, you want to get out of Louisiana, right to experienced more stuff. So, after that I had decommitted from LSU came to Memphis.

favorite tiger memory

10. What has been your favorite moment at your time with Memphis so far?

I think my favorite moment was when we played Arkansas State this year and the crowd got loud and when they had fumbled and we recovered it and we was just celebrating with the fans, like they was probably the best moment here. Like it felt so good.


11. Do you remember blocking the field goal against UCF last year?

I honestly didn't know I had blocked it. Like all I know is my hand went up and the ball just went flying, and I went to the sideline. Coach was like, you block the kick, you block the kick. I'm like, I don't know, I guess. And then they were like, yeah, you blocked the kick. And I was, I was excited. And then, um, they took the ball down there to try to kick another one, and we got back there and they had missed it and we won.


12.  How would you grade the Memphis Tiger Defense this year?

If I had to grade it I would give it a B. The reason I say that is because y'all can see when we played Tulane, we kind of started off slowly but second half we came the guy and picked it up. I feel like for this season going on, I feel like y'all can see a lot from the defense.


13. Who is the hardest offensive line to go up against?

I would say Navy, they cut a lot, they like to cut a lot so they were the hardest.
