Why he chose South Carolina:

South Carolina has been my home before in 2018-2020 and will always be. The environment that coach Annan and the entire staff are creating is one I want to be a part of! From the very first moment coach Annan shared his philosophy of the game with me, I knew I wanted to be a part of this dream so here I am ready to chase it!
