He attributes his ability to seemingly do it all to the support he receives from his family and commitment to a well-scheduled routine. He has offers multiple universities, but has not made a final decision on where he will be heading after Memorial. Currently, his top choices are the University of Houston, Texas State University, and the University of Texas at San Antonio.
