Here’s our exclusive person-to-person with a highly-rated prospect in the country thus far.

MSE: What led you to playing basketball?

AE: I fell in love with the game watching my older brother Algevon who currently plays for Cleveland State University.

MSE: How can sports benefit you?

AE: The game teaches me how to express myself and how to build relationships.

MSE: Obstacles faced on your journey?

AE: Obstacles faced would definitely be COVID 19. When the virus hit I shut my game playing down. While other kids were still playing games I was at home. So it slowed my in-game experience.

MSE: How did you overcome those obstacles?

AE: I trained! Lived in the gym! Worked on fundamentals! That really helped me when it came time to play again.

MSE: What decisions did you make? 

AE: I decided to buy into training and working hard.

MSE: What did you learn from the experiences?

AE: I learned that basketball isn’t forever. And that things can happen. And it can be taking away.  So I can’t take it for granted.

MSE: What would you do differently?

AE: Just be better prepared mentally for things that happen and that are out of my control.
