What an incredible two years, Nole family.

Who could have imagined that we would make FSU history by becoming the first team to win the ACC regular season championship? Or set the FSU record for most wins in a season? Or finish the law two seasons ranked in the top 10?

Thank you to Nole Nation for selling out the Tuck and supporting us day in and day out. You can't imagine how much your support impacted our season. Thank you to my coaches for giving me this opportunity, for shaping me into the man I am today, and for pushing me to be the best player i can be. Thank you toe everyone in academics, for helping me excel as a student-athlete.

Thank you to Amanda, our trainer, for always keeping me healthy. Thank you to the mangers and GA's for doing all the work that nobody sees.

And, of course, a big thank you to my teammates for pushing me and having confidence in me when nobody else did.

It is with a heart full of gratitude that I am entering my name in the 2020 NBA Draft. I'll never forget the amazing ride of these last two years, and I'm excited to see what the future holds.
