Notes:

The Texas native was one of the top-ranked prep kickers in the country. He also punted and played soccer. As a true freshman in 2008, he connected on 8-of-11 field-goal attempts, with a long of 53, and 19-of-21 point-after tries. Handled kickoffs 41 times for a 58.6-yard average and three touchbacks while also punting six times for an average of 31.2 yards and placing five punts inside the 20-yard line. Hit 14-of-21 FG attempts and 40-of-41 PATs in ’09 while also handling kickoffs (63-63.4-5) and limited punting duties (4-36.5-L51-0). Kicked a 59-yard field goal against Toledo to set the school record — it was the longest FG in the country that season. Made all 27 PATs and 15-of-19 FG attempts, with a long of 52, with 54-65.2-11 on kickoffs and 22-36.4-L59-9 in ’10. Connected on 39-of-40 PATs, 19-of-25 FG attempts, with a long of 53, and 71-65.5-24 on kickoffs in ’11. Also added punting duties (23-35.0-L54-17). Finished his career as the most accurate kicker in school history at 73.7 percent (made 56-of-76 FG attempts). Team captain.

Positives:

Has a big leg with deep range. Handled placekicks, kickoffs and punts. Confident. Showed well at the Senior Bowl. Good character — hardworking and well-respected by teammates and coaches.

Negatives:

Average lift and rise. Had potential game-winner at Rice blocked. Limited experience in pressure situations. 

Summary:

Versatile, strong-legged kicker with range of 60-plus yards. Senior season earned him an opportunity.
