Named to All-SEC Second Team by league coaches following senior season in which he tied for ninth in the country with five interceptions...Finished senior campaign at Mississippi State with 37 tackles, six pass breakups and a blocked kick...Appeared in all 13 games for the Bulldogs as a junior, producing 23 tackles, four pass breakups and an interception returned for a touchdown...Spent two seasons at Itawamba Community College where he was a standout performer on defense and special teams before heading to MSU...Identified as the fastest defensive back that appeared at this year's Scouting Combine, running the 40 in 4.36 seconds...Doesn't have nearly as much experience at the FBS level as other top-flight defenders, but blazing speed and good size provide plenty of potential for success.
