Special thanks to my family and my mom because without them none this would be possible. Also want to thank my high school coaches, AAU coaches, and the amazing people around me. Last I want to thank all the schools that have recruited me. With that being said!! I am very blessed to announce my commitment to most tremendous program in the country!
