“Dear Vol Nation – First, I want to thank God for allowing me to be in this position. Without Him, none of this is possible. The opportunities that He has provided me have been nothing short of amazing. To my family: I can’t thank you all enough for the constant support and love you all have given me on this journey. I am truly blessed to have a village that is in my corner. You all have been with me every step of the way, and I am truly thankful. You are all my motivation. To my teammates: The brotherhood and bond we’ve shared is forever and unbreakable. Only a few get to experience this special journey, and I’m grateful I got to do this with the guys in our locker room. I’ll always carry these memories with me wherever I go. To my coaches: I will forever be thankful for the guidance, mentorship and belief in me. You all have provided me with so many opportunities during my past four years here, which is all a player could ask for. I appreciate you all allowing the kid from Memphis to be himself and grow into the man I am today. The leadership has shaped and taught me in many ways, an and off the field. I am appreciative of every coach I’ve encountered over the past four years here at Tennessee. I want to express how this University has made my college football experience truly special. These past four years the support, love and cheers have made this chapter special and unforgettable. Through all of the wins, losses, injuries, shining moments, adversities and obstacles – I gave my all for Tennessee. As I step into this new chapter towards chasing my dreams, I will forever carry the pride and spirit of the University of Tennessee with me. After much prayer and consideration with my family, I will be declaring for the 2024 NFL Draft.”
