“It just felt like the best opportunity for me to get better as a basketball player and a person,” he said. “I can see myself making great connections there and it’s a family environment.

“I’m well known for my athleticism and the way I jump but I think my jumper and handle are continuing to get better,” he added. “I play above the room and love to shoot pull-ups. I think I’m real versatile on defense and and guard 1-4.”
