New Orleans Bowl: Recorded six tackles, including five solo, against a receiving core that was much taller and entered the game with outstanding statistics...broke up two passes...game ball winner for his bowl game efforts.

2007: Recorded double digit tackles four times...had a career-high 18 at Kentucky, including 14 solo...recorded 10 against Minnesota, Arkansas State and Troy...had an interception against Middle Tennessee, USF, Lafayette, Florida, and Florida International, a game in which he had a 44-yard return...teamed with Tavious Polo to lead the nation's corner duos...game ball winner following the FIU, Troy and Memphis games...special teams game ball winner following the Oklahoma State, USF, ULM and Troy games.

2006: Played in every game and finished sixth in total tackles with 46...also had a team-leading four interceptions and 32 yards on the return...his best outing, which was assured of conference recognition until another player bettered it by one, was three interceptions against Arkansas State...was part of a defense that set a school record for single-season interceptions (18)...used speed to apply pressure to the offense with 3.5 tackles for a loss of eight yards...also credited with eight passes broken up...while he was a young player in 2006, his experience was key to a backfield that lacked the depth it has enjoyed in years past.

2005: Played in every game, primarily on special teams...ended the year with six tackles...recorded two assists in the season opener at Kansas, his first collegiate game...had solos at Minnesota, Louisville and at Louisiana-Lafayette...credited with his final assist of the season at Arkansas State.

2004: Used the year to gain size and experience...practiced with the squad and was redshirted. High School: Played for Frank Tudryn at Gulf Coast High School...recorded 66 tackles, 11 pass break ups and returned two punts for touchdowns...named All-County and All-Region...held a 3.8 GPA in high school.
