I would also like to thank my mom, my uncle Jerrod Peterson, and my cousin Roy Carmichael for helping me through this process. I also thank my trainer, Chad Hallet, for getting my body right on every offseason. Lastly, I would also like to thank all of the schools that have been recruiting me and have offered me. That being said, I would like to announce that I am 110 percent committed to Baylor University.”
