Was a dual-threat quarterback as an Ohio prep, rushing for nearly 2,700 yards with 26 touchdowns while throwing for more than 3,800 yards and 30 touchdowns. Also lettered three times in basketball and track. Saw action in all 13 games as a true freshman in 2008, making four starts and grabbing 15 passes for 161 yards (10.7-yard average) and two touchdowns. Also returned four kickoffs for 79 yards (19.8-yard average). Was slowed early in the ’09 campaign after undergoing surgery on his left hip (labrum) in April but played in all 13 games (five starts) and recorded 21-226-0 (10.8). Moved into the starting lineup in ’10 and led the team in receiving with 62-953-8 (15.4) in 13 games. Was the Wildcats’ leading receiver for a second straight season with 75-1,060-11 (14.1) in 13 starts in ’11. For his career, he has nine rushes for 47 yards (5.2-yard average) and zero touchdowns and has completed 2-of-3 passes for 60 yards. Only one career fumble.Positives:
Solidly built and durable. Good two-year production. Nifty route runner. Gets his head around and works back to the quarterback. Has slot experience and will work the middle. Catches the ones he should. Good field awareness. Has special-teams experience. Solid character.Negatives:
Short arms. Needs to get stronger. Tight through his core. Average slot quickness. Gears down to cut. Struggles to separate vs. man coverage. Outmuscled in traffic — does not consistently haul in contested catches. Does not threaten vertically and struggles tracking over his shoulder. Production is inflated by short throws and bubble screens. Average burst and agility after the catch.Summary:
Productive, competitive, relatively monotone slot receiver lacking exceptional athletic traits. Needs room to operate and will have to stand out on special teams to stick.
