1.  Why did you decide to sign with State Fair College?

It’s a small college in Sedalia, MO with a 25:1 faculty to student ratio. I believe I’ll get a lot of one-on-one time with the professors, as well as focus more on my sports career. I also decided on going here because I want to travel and study business, which is why I’ll be majoring in business international (they have that option for me). Finally, I decided to go here because I received a full ride basketball scholarship.

2. Describe the excitement you feel about becoming a college student-athlete?

It feels extremely surreal, because I’ve always considered myself an elite athlete, but to get the opportunity to play in college is one of the best feelings.

3. What advice would you give to other athletes looking to get recruited?

The best advice I believe I can give to other athletes is, do not depend on your coaches and school counselors. You should go online and make an online profile and go from there. As you continue with your online searches you will learn more and more about different colleges and began filling out sport questionnaires.

4. Who has been the biggest influence in your sports career and why?

My father has been the biggest influence in my sports career because he was a student-athlete. He has been supportive of my sports career since I’ve been playing. I also believe he was a huge influence, because he gave me the confidence to play sports. He would tell me when I didn’t do well, and then take me to the park to work on my weaknesses. He inspired me to become the best!

5. What would you like to accomplish during your college sports career?

During my college sports career, I would like to see myself stepping out of my comfort zone. If the coach asks me to play a position I don’t really play, I would like to see myself taking on the challenge and become a better player. If I get the chance, I want learn how to play all positions.
