2012 All-Big East Conference First Team selection after starting every game and amassing team-high 84 tackles, with two interceptions and three forced fumbles...Started 10 games in 2011, appeared in 13 games in 2010 as a sophomore and 12 games as a freshman in 2009...Ranks sixth all-time at Syracuse for tackles by a defensive back (263)...Faced tremendous adversity a few years ago when he lost both parents in a nine-month period, causing him to seriously consider leaving school to care for five younger siblings...Quick, tenacious and smart, making up for lack of ideal height...Hits like a linebacker...Has proven to be effective both in run support as well as when dropping back in coverage...Taller, stronger NFL receivers will present a major challenge.
