Played quarterback and defensive back while also lettering in track as a Virginia prep. Redshirted in 2007. Began the ’08 season as a defensive back but saw action in nine games at wide receiver (started at H-back against Temple), grabbing seven passes for 92 yards (13.1-yard average) and two touchdowns. Saw limited action as a kickoff returner with six returns for 117 yards (19.5-yard average). In ’09, recorded 18-154-0 (8.6) in 11 games (two starts — one at flanker and one as the fourth WR). Opened the Bowling Green game with an 86-yard rushing touchdown on a reverse. Started all 12 games at flanker in ’10, posting 56-599-1 (10.7) receiving, 10-193-0 (19.3) on kickoff returns and led the team with 885 all-purpose yards. Also threw a 24-yard touchdown pass against Ball State and had a nine-yard punt return for a score. Has five career rushes for 165 yards (33.0-yard average) and one touchdown. Team captain.Summary:
Lean, athletic vertical threat who displayed freakish explosion numbers at his pro day, including a 45-inch vertical leap and broad jump of 10 feet 10 inches. Measurables do not translate to the field, however. Gained less than nine yards per catch as a senior, and durability, hands and competitiveness are questionable.
