Notes:
Former Junior College All-American as a return specialist...Transferred to West Virginia for the 2007 season finishing the year with 16 tackles and one INT...Recorded 68 tackles and three INTs in his first season as a starter in 2008, en route to All-Big East Second-Team honors...Plays better in a zone defense than man-to-man, with the ability to react and close on the ball...Solid tackler that is good in run support...A bit of a defensive back tweener, not quick enough to be a shut-down cover corner at the next level and too small to flourish as a safety.
