Interestingly, this conversation hinted at the possibility of the Patriots bringing a specific player into the league, as they have spoken to him several times.

This young talent made a name for himself by achieving the highest yards per attempt in Week 2 of Senior Ball, with 17.1 attempts, followed by Kenny Picket and Sam Ehlinger. Furthermore, he led South Carolina to a 5-7 record in 2023, completing with 3,186 yards.
