Commitment status: Undecided
Wt: 175 lbs
LPI: What are you going to do to take your game to the next level this offseason? Are you playing 7on7 or are you playing any other sports?
NH: Going into my senior season I’m just focusing on grinding and nothing but that. Right now I am currently running track, so hopefully it helps me improve on my quickness and speed.
LPI: You currently don’t have any offers, but I believe you have what it takes to play at the next level. What skill set can you bring to the table for a college football program?
NH: I bring leadership, athleticism, and what I feel is the most important is comradery. I feel that with these three characteristics of mine, along with my skill, I can really be a key factor on the field.
LPI: Which schools have shown serious interest in you?
NH: Some DI and DII schools like Indiana Wesleyan University, Eastern Michigan, and others. I looking to add more to my options going into this season.
LPI: Where have you visited most recently and do you have any planned visits or camps/showcases set?
NH: I received an invite to the Nike opening and I believe that I did great; I feel that I have earned the respect of players and coaches that were there. I’m hoping that I will be able to experience more camps this summer.
LPI: On or off the field, how do you demonstrate leadership or go the extra mile for your teammates?
NH: The guys on my team are not only teammates, but brothers as well. I make it my business to be the best role model to the younger players and receive advice as much as I can from the upperclassmen before they leave, so that I can improve on being a captain on my team.
LPI: Who are some of your teammates or training partners that you believe can play at the next level, but have gone overlooked by colleges.
NH: We have so many it’s hard to think, but I would have to say Bryan Garmon (senior), Darrell Grizby (senior), Cornelius Campbell, Trevor Land, Justin Adams, Lafaibian Fain, Treville Hilton, Keyshawn Kreft (all are freshmen) and lastly Patrick Ross (sophomore). These guys are all leaders on and off the field and are very great athletes that are willing to put in as much work that there is needed to be great.
