“On Jan 22nd, 2018, I had minor surgery. Glory to God that it was a success and I am beyond thankful to be able to continue to play the game that I love. I would like to thank each and every school that has recruited me to this point. With that being said, after taking with my family these are my TOP 10 schools.
MY RECRUITMENT IS STILL OPEN!!”
