Bio

Another great athlete from talent-rich Scotland County … Stepped in for the injured All-American corner Mac McCain III and was exceptional … Will not compete for a starting corner position of his own during the 2019 season … Came out of the 2019 spring practice session as the No. 1 left cornerback  … Coaches are excited about his coverage skills opposite McCain … Will have the tough task of replacing two-time first-team All-MEAC selection Timadre Abram … His 4.38 speed in the 40-yard dash makes him one of the fastest players on the team … in 4.38 seconds … Has a 34-inch vertical and a 9-foot, 9-inch broad jump. 

2018 Season: Played in 12 games with four starts … Started the Aggies final four games of the season in place of an injured Mac McCain … Made 32 tackles (29 unassisted) and broke up seven passes … Received his first career start during the Greatest Homecoming On Earth against Norfolk State on Nov. 3 … Responded with four unassisted tackles and pass breakup in the Aggies 37-20 win over the Spartans … Followed that performance with eight unassisted tackles and a pass breakup in the Aggies 28-12 win at Savannah State … Helped the Aggies win the 2019 Celebration Bowl with five unassisted tackles and pass breakup in the Aggies 24-22 win over Alcorn State at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta. 

2017 Season: Took a redshirt season. 

High School: Helped Scotland record a 14-1 record and a spot in the state championship game … Earned second-team All-Cape Fear Area honors … Was also an outstanding kickoff returner.
