For the past three years at Mississippi State, I have poured my heart into everything I did on the field, in the classroom and in the community. This place taught me to never give up, and it instilled a desire and a work ethic to reach my ultimate goal. I intend to complete my degree. I have so much passion for this game, and I am ready to take the next step as I declare for the 2019 NFL Draft.
I have always been a man of my word, and I always finish what I start. Therefore, on New Year's Day, I will wear the Maroon and White one last time with my brothers and play in the Outback Bowl in Tampa.
