I have loved the game since I could remember. It started when I was 3 and my dad was teaching me how to dribble, that love fueled into the desire to play well at all levels and that commitment was sealed when I set foot on Duke's campus several summers ago and played during basketball camp. I knew then that I wanted to play college ball and decided to map out a plan to make that dream come true. My goal is to play basketball at the collegiate level and then go on to the NBA or play abroad while achieving my degree in engineering. I am good candidate for your team because I bring a passion for the game along with a strong, hardworking business ethic that is needed to yield major results. What makes me different from other recruits is no one works harder than me and no one is harder on themselves than me. I push myself to the brink and then push some more until I show up better than the day before. I am my own competition. I am also very analytical. I have raw talents that enable coaches to mold into what is needed for the team. Because of that I have played several positions, guard, small forward, shooting and point guard. I get the job done and I contribute to the team in a big way.
As far as academics, I have been building and programming robots since I was 10 and want to leverage that skill and hobby to help build tools that will assist doctors in the medical field.
Finally, I have learned a lot over the years and attribute my enthusiasm and work ethic to watching my dad, hearing him share his basketball and coaching experiences, listening to and growing from my coaches and of course reviewing thousands of footage from all the college, NBA and unknown basketball greats. It is my hope that I will one day use my basketball and educational journey to mentor and encourage other young people to continue to work hard to achieve dreams and change the world for the better.
