Notes:

The Florida prep signed with South Florida out of high school but didn’t qualify academically. Went the junior-college route at Butte College (Calif.), where he caught 38 passes for 563 yards (14.8-yard average) and eight touchdowns in addition to nine kickoff returns for 303 yards (33.7-yard average) and one touchdown in 2007. Recorded 37-705-9 (19.1) receiving and 4-73-0 (18.2) on kickoff returns in ’08 and left Butte with a school-record 17 touchdown receptions. Committed to Iowa State for the ’09 season but did not qualify academically. Was planning on enrolling at South Florida after taking a three-hour class to qualify but changed his mind when head coach Jim Leavitt was fired. Ended up at Louisville in ’10 and appeared in 13 games, making five starts at “X” receiver and four at “H” receiver. Grabbed 29-401-5 (13.8) as a receiver and saw limited action as a returner with 7-167-0 (23.9) on kickoffs and 7-63-0 (9.0) on punts. Played most of the season with an ankle injury. Played in all 13 games in '11, making five starts at wide receiver and one at cornerback (Pittsburgh), and recorded 24-280-2 (11.7) and 10 tackles. Also played cornerback against West Virginia and missed the second half against Murray State with a hamstring injury.

Summary:

Good-sized, long-armed, narrow-framed, short-to-intermediate receiver who shows a quick first step after the catch along with some giddyup and shimmy to pick up yards after the catch, though he has to improve his route running.
