High SchoolGreenwood (Greenwood, South Carolina)
Second Team All-SEC selection in 2012...Recorded 79 tackles, two interceptions, seven pass breakups, two forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries as a senior...A knack for making big plays as evidenced by his 69-yard INT return for a TD, and a 65-yard fumble return for a score last season...Captain of one of the top defensive units in the nation...Highlight-reel hitter...Physical defensive back who can support in the box against the run and play bump-and-run with receivers...Impressive ball skills and strong football instincts...Average height for the position...Overly aggressive at times, something more experienced players at the next level could take advantage of.
