Draft Prospect Outlook:
Decent-sized, muscular cornerback with adequate quickness, above-average downfield speed and top-flight ball skills. Can be grabby as he's getting out of his backpedal. Plays the ball like a receiver down the field.

He had 38 tackles, 10 passes defensed and three interceptions as a sophomore, then excelled the following year, finishing with 57 total tackles, seven interceptions and 16 passes defensed.

He also added one TD passing, rushing, receiving and on punt returns in his senior year, as well as returning two of his picks for TDs.
