100213175• Height, Weight, and Position? 

6’8” 180lbs SF/PF.

• High School, summer team and Graduation Year?

Canton High School. Michigan Warriors. Class of 2014 (senior).

• Players you try to model your game after?

Players that I try to model my game after are Kevin Durant, Tracy McGrady, and Carmelo Anthony. I think I have the same body type as Durant and T mac so I watch how they use their bodies to their advantage. I love how physical Carmelo is in the low post area. I try to duplicate their games when I play.

• Important Stats

I need 65 blocks this season to be the all-time leader at Canton. I averaged 11 pts., 6 rebs, and just about 3 blocks a game last season.

• Most memorable game in your career so far?

Most memorable game was by far the triple overtime game vs. John Glenn last year.  I played my best game of the season that night and it was just a fun game to be a part of and of course winning helps.

• Colleges that you would like to attend?

I don’t have target school.  I just want to go somewhere that I feel is right for me on and off the court.

• Colleges that have shown interest in you so far?

U of D, UMass-Lowell, LIU Brooklyn, Toledo, Eastern Michigan, Youngstown St, Central Connecticut, Grand Valley St.

• What makes you unique from other players at your position?

I think what makes me unique from others at my position is that I bring a different skill set. I can play & guard the 3 spot down to the 5 spot. I can bring the big guys out to guard me on the perimeter and take the little guys down under the basket. Also I have a need for competition.  I won’t back don’t from a battle.

• Strengths and areas you are improving in?

The main thing coaches have been saying to me is that I have to put on weight.  So I have been in the weight room trying to get bigger.  I’ve also been working on my ball handling skills a lot this summer.

• How did the offseason go?

I had a pretty good first half of the summer circuit.  I was playing really well and more and more coaches were starting to gain interest. The second half of the summer circuit, I fell off a little. I had a sprained ankle for most of the month of July.  I didn’t want to miss the opportunity to play in the big tournaments in Milwaukee & Las Vegas so I tried my best to play through the injury.

• Goals for the upcoming season?

Goals for this season are to go beyond what we did last year.  We had one of the best seasons in Canton basketball history last year.  At one point of the season we were on a 13 game win streak.  We won our division, Conference, and our district. We also went 5-0 over our rivals Plymouth & Salem. Last season was great, but I want more this season.

• What role do you see yourself having this year for your team?

I have the lead role on my team this season.  I’ve been on the team the longest, I’ve played the most games and people look up to me. This is my last year of high school basketball, I have to show the younger guys how to do what needs to be done.  I accept all responsibility for how we do this year.

• What will a coach be getting out of you at the next level?

He will get a savvy, hardworking player with a great motor and the will to win, and even a better person.

• What will will go into your decision about choosing a college?

Things that have gone into my college decision are class size.  I tend to have a better time learning in a smaller environment. Also the campus lifestyle.  I have to like where I plan to be for the next 4 years or more.  And of course a winning basketball program with a great coaching staff.

• Most influential person in your life? Why

My brother is the most influential person in my life. He’s 7 years older than me and he’s been through this recruiting process before.  He played for Detroit country day and won a state championship in 2007, his senior year. He’s played college basketball and teaches me a lot of things on and off the court.  I know when I need someone to talk to or if I’m stuck in a situation, I can call my brother and he’ll also be there for me.

• Legacy you want to leave at your school?

I go to a “football school” so the thing I would love to leave Canton with is for the school to be recognize for its basketball program.
