Troutt was recruited to play basketball at the University of California, Santa Barbara on a full scholarship in 2015, but retired a year later as a result of medical complications. He was sidelined for the remainder of the 2016 season with a hip injury, per his UCSB bio page. Prior to retirement, his primary position was a guard.

Following his athletic run at UC Santa Barbara, he transferred to Southern Methodist University where he continued his education from 2016 to 2019. He had several investment and business internships during his time in school.

With only 17 posts on his Instagram (dating back to February 2020), the majority of them include lengthy captions about his newfound love for Jesus and his journey in faith.

His first post explains that he's faced many highs and lows over the past few years, but has learned that Jesus "is the only thing that is ever gonna satisfy [his] heart." He wrote, "His love captured me in my darkest moments and I was met with a smile and a love that changed everything."

He added, "I promise nothing in this world, other than HIM, is going to ever bring life and a life WORTH living. I want to live a life of meaning and purpose and significance and that is found in following Jesus!"

He's also opened up about his faith on The Built Different Podcast, where he told host Zach Clinton about his difficult past and how he overcame affliction and adversity thanks to God.

He was nervous when he first met Madison

When Prewett and Troutt publicized their relationships on Instagram for the first time in May, they each recalled what the past five months have been like since they initially met. The Bachelor alum even reminisced about their first date together, in which nerves were ever-present.

"It's been special since the first date: when u forgot to open my car door because we were both so nervous, when we barely touched our quesadillas at dinner because of our deep convos and intentional questions," she wrote.

Fortunately, the date ended on a high as she notes that they "[ended] the night riding around listening to Drake in the car on full blast for hours."

Troutt concluded his sentimental love note to Prewett with a similar tidbit, writing, "Could write a book on what I've learned from your heart, but I'll save that for another time. For now just know, like drizzy drake said, 'I got z's for these other girls I'm sleepyyyy.'"
