Very athletic player who has made the switch to offense, where he'll try his hand at tailback, after spending his first two years in the program at safety ... Opens fall camp listed fourth on the depth chart at the position ... Had some impressive moments during his first spring at tailback, before he was sidelined with a hamstring injury midway through camp that limited him the rest of the way ... Carried 4 times in the spring game for 19 yards.


Spent his redshirt freshman season primarily as a reserve at the free safety position, and got some playing experience on Tiger special teams units ... Played in 11 games overall, seeing most of his playing time on kickoff return units ... Won Back-Up Player of the Week for his efforts in practice leading up to the Baylor game ... Had a solid spring practice period where he got plenty of experience, with returning starter William Moore sitting out the spring due to an injury ... Had a pair of tackles in the annual Black & Gold Spring Game to close spring camp.

Was impressive in his first year in the program, enough so that Tiger coaches had him ready to play as a true freshman at the beginning of the year ... After not using him initially, coaches were able to protect his redshirt as the depth got settled with other veterans during the year.

Highly-regarded athletic dual-threat quarterback from Diboll, Texas, where he was rated by Rivals as the No. 30 overall prospect (any position) in the state of Texas, and also as the nation's No. 30 athlete prospect ... Ranked by Super Prep as the nation's No. 25-ranked athlete prospect, and as the No. 38 overall prospect (any position) coming out of the state of Texas in 2007 ... Won All-State and District MVP honors as a senior in 2006, and was named by Max Emfinger as an All-American for his play ... Threw and ran for over 600 yards each in 2006 as he led his team to a berth in the state playoffs ... Transferred to Diboll prior to the 2005 season from his hometown of Jasper, Texas, when his family's home in Jasper was destroyed by Hurricane Rita ... Stayed with family in Diboll, but transfer rules forced him to sit out the 2005 season before resuming play in 2006 ... Led his Jasper team to the state title game as a sophomore QB in 2004.
