Notes:

ee-time first-team all-state selection as a Pennsylvania prep. Also won state titles in the 200- and 400-meter dashes as a senior in addition to playing baseball and basketball. Redshirted in 2007. Appeared in 10 games in ’08 and made three catches for 71 yards (23.7-yard average) and one touchdown. Started all 13 games and led the team in catches and receiving yards with 48-785-6 (16.4) in ’09. Was the team’s best receiver in ’10, hauling in 53-885-8 (16.7) in 13 starts. Was sidelined for ’11 spring practice with a concussion. In ’11, hauled in 40-654-3 (16.4) to lead all Penn State receivers for a third straight season. Played in 11 games (10 starts) and missed two games after fracturing the fifth metatarsal on his left foot. Had five career rushes for 44 yards and four punt returns for 64 yards. Team captain. Only one career fumble.

Positives:

Is tall and presents a sizable target. Controlled, balanced mover. Can box out defenders on inside slants. Tracks throws over his shoulder. Knows where the sticks are. Has hustler traits — see Alabama ’10 when chased interceptor Robert Lester 75 yards and forced a fumble. Solid character. Hardworking and accountable.

Negatives:

Extremely small hands. Average athletic ability. Stiff lower body. Subdued if he gets jammed up. Unsudden off the line — builds to pedestrian speed (cannot separate vertically). Lets some throws into his body. Limited functional strength and competitiveness. Average blocker. Does not project as core special-teams player.

Summary:

Tall, angular, smooth-muscled, possession receiver whose production was affected by poor QB play. Lacks exceptional traits for the pro game, and best chance to stick will come as a No. 4 or No. 5 receiver in a West Coast system.
