“I’d like to thank my head coach (Jamaal) Bess for guiding me throughout my recruiting process and a big (shoutout) to Coach Jackson for staying on me and always pushing me to be a better player and young man. Also, I want to thank all the college coaches who have taken the time to recruit me. With all that being said, I would like to announce I am 100 percent committed to Troy University. Go Trojans!”
