How have your workouts been going with the NBA teams?
What do the teams have you do at the workouts?
How many teams have you done workouts with and how many teams do you still have to meet with?
How do you think your senior season at Long Beach State helped you prepare for the NBA workouts?
Do you have a favorite team you worked out for? Or maybe a favorite city you have visited?
Do you know what your plans are for draft night?
What are you expecting during the draft?
If drafted, you will be LBSU's first player chosen since 1998. What does that mean to you?
It would be a blessing and an honor if I'm drafted. It will be a great opportunity to once again put Long Beach on the map. I have worked hard my whole life and I'm glad it's paying off. It goes to show you that with hard work and determination anyone can make their dreams come true, even without going to a big time basketball school like North Carolina or Louisville.
