Notes:
Named All-ACC First Team in 2012 with Florida State who was also the only player from the ACC to be named a semifinalist for the Thorpe Award...Made immediate impact with the Seminoles in 2010 during redshirt freshman campaign and was named a consensus Freshman All-American as well as the ACC Defensive Rookie of the Year for his efforts...Appeared in a pair of games in 2009 for FSU, but suffered a hand injury on special teams which kept him out of action the rest of the way...Finished career with 140 tackles, of which 112 were solo...Logged seven tackles for loss, eight interceptions, 23 passes defended and three forced fumbles...Ideal size for blanketing the bigger receivers atthe next level...An aggressive player in the secondary who is capable of locking down his side of the field...Decided to forgo his final season at the college level.
