Why UT Tyler?:  I understood the system was going in the right direction and Coach was going to bring in a team that he wanted to work hard and show heart and muscle. Coach Copeland said that he was going to push us hard and that is exactly what I felt I needed to reach my full potential. My old AAU teammate Jordan Cannon did well his first year out here as well, and he planted the seed in my head to reach out to Coach. This is where I will be finishing my eligibility, and I am looking forward to it.
