Notes:

Standout running back who also ran track as a California prep. Recruited as a running back, he missed the first three games of the 2008 season with a sprained knee. Recorded 16 carries for 59 yards (3.7-yard average) and a touchdown with nine receptions for 94 yards (10.4) and zero touchdowns in nine games. Added 11 kickoff returns for 284 yards (25.8). Lack of depth in the Cardinal secondary prompted a move to strong safety in ’09 when he started 11-of-12 games in which he played and produced 78 tackles, three pass breakups and two interceptions with two tackles for loss and a forced fumble. Did not start against Oregon State and did not play against Arizona (quad). Started all 12 games in which he played in ’10, logging 60-5-5 with 1 1⁄2 tackles for loss, one sack and a forced fumble. Did not play against Washington State (left hand/wrist). Recorded 52-4-0 with one forced fumble in 10 starts at strong safety in ’11. Missed three midseason games with a hand injury.

Positives:

Has good size and is well-built with a pumped-up upper body. Fills the alley. Throws his weight around and doesn’t shy from contact. Good hands to pull in interceptions. Experienced, three-year starter. Intelligent.

Negatives:

Average athletic ability, instincts and diagnostic skills. Tight hips. Struggles in man coverage and range is limited. Leaves his feet to tackle. Not a playmaker. Has been dinged up.

Summary:

Lean, muscular, experienced, tough strong safety with unsudden movement. Will have to make his mark in the box and on special teams.
