"I am going to the Elite 11 and NFTC camps. I will be at Duke and Kentucky Spring practices. My strengths are that I can stay in the pocket and I am pretty good at hitting the check down. I am also mobile when needed to run. I probably have a few weaknesses in my game. I really dont know right now but there is always room for improvement."
