Notes:

Was one of the top weak-side defensive ends in the nation as a North Carolina prep after recording 95 tackles and 33 sacks as a senior. Also played basketball, as his high school didn’t offer football until his sophomore season. Saw action in 11 games as a true freshman, recording 12 tackles, two tackles for loss and one sack in 2007. Posted 21-2-0 with one pass batted down while playing in all 13 games, including his first career start against The Citadel in ’08. Redshirted in ’09 because of the depth of the defensive line for the Tigers. Returned in ’10 to participate in 11 games and registered 17-2-0 and a blocked punt against Presbyterian College. Sprained his left ankle against Boston College and missed the next two contests. Was limited during ’11 spring practice because of a sprained PCL in his left knee and graduated in August of 2011. Saw limited action as a reserve in ’11, managing 25-4-2 with two batted passes and one interception in 14 games. Scored two defensive touchdowns against North Carolina — a 20-yard interception return and a 26-yard fumble return — to become the first Clemson defender to score twice in a game since 1954.

Positives:

Very good overall length — arm and body. Fluid mover with loose hips and elasticity. Good athlete. Solid work habits. 

Negatives:

Green instincts. Only one year of production. Has been slowed by knee, ankle and groin injuries in limited opportunities. Lacks functional strength. 

Summary:

Put himself on the radar with a standout performance against North Carolina and flashed enough potential as a senior to warrant a chance as a developmental pass rusher.
