Played on 2002 and 2003 Tennessee State AAA champions. Tennessee's top free throw shooter as a senior, hitting 91.4 percent. Honorable mention All-State, regional and city championship MVP, All-Metro and All-State.

OFF THE COURT ... Follows the financial and brokerage world of Wall Street. Likes hip hop and R & B, and enjoys singer R. Kelly. Favorite athlete is Michael Jordan. Follows the Miami Heat.

COACH DUNN SAYS ... "If healthy and in basketball shape could be a major contributor. Extremely long arms and could be one of the best defenders in the Ivy League."
