He played for Tampa Catholic High School as a junior, posting 59 tackles, four sacks and three interceptions in 2021 to help the Crusaders to a 7-4 record and a berth in the Class 4A playoffs.
UTSA's 2023 class now numbers 28, including 18 who hail from Texas with seven from the Greater Houston Area, five from East Texas and three apiece from the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex and Central Texas. There are two from Georgia and Mississippi and one each from Alabama, Florida, Hawai'i, Louisiana and Pennsylvania, as well as the program's first player from American Samoa.
