XRM: ‘I’m Excited to Pursue a Career in the NBA’

Basketball has been such a huge part of my life since as long as I can remember. It’s in my blood. Having the opportunity to come to Florida State four years ago to play basketball, where my father played has been a dream come true.

When I first arrived at FSU, I set many goals for myself.  I wanted to follow in my father’s footsteps while also creating my own identity. Florida State allowed me to do that and I will be forever grateful for the opportunities this amazing University has provided me, both academically and athletically.

My coaches have been mentors and role models who have helped shape me on and off the court. I’ve forged bonds with my teammates, my brothers, that I know will last a lifetime.

I feel that now is the time for me to continue setting goals for myself at the next level. I’m excited to take this next step to pursue a career in the NBA. I will be forever grateful to be a Seminole and I look forward to making you proud in the future.
