JJ Watt has confirmed that he will not write a speech ahead of time for his commencement address at the University of Wisconsin's graduation later this month.

Watt went on the 'Thank You, 72' podcast to make it known that he will be ad-libbing his speech to the class of 2019.

“The most natural and real way for me to get my message across is to just speak,” Watt said. “At the end of the day, I want the students and I want the people in attendance to know this is coming from me, this is coming from my heart, these are things that I think are important.”
