He joined Earl Warren high school, but, he did not play basketball until his sophomore year. During that time, he carried the responsibility of his family. Later, he played basketball simultaneously before getting spotted by San Antonio Legends coach John Collins.

He then went onto join LIU but, played college basketball for Baylor after the LIU coach left for Duquesne. By his senior years, he was a regular starter and averaged 15.9 points with 6.1 rebounds and 2.3 assists.
However, his big announcement came in 2016, when he was lottery picked by the Atlanta Hawks for his defensive solidity and offensive contributions.
