2014 Outlook: Will be looked at to help fill the voids at linebacker left by departed seniors Christian Jones and Telvin Smith. Very productive linebacker who spent time at the weakside position last season under Smith. Excellent ball-hawking skills were on display in 2013 when he racked up several tackles in a limited amount of time.  

2013: Back-up linebacker who played in all 14 games and saw action on special teams as a starter on the kickoff coverage and punt coverage units...eighth on the team with 46 tackles despite not starting a game…set new career high with a team-leading 11 tackles and a QB hurry against Syracuse...tallied five tackles against Bethune-Cookman...made three tackles – including 1.0 TFL – against Maryland...tied a career high with six tackles against NC State...led the team with eight tackles, including 0.5 TFL, at Wake Forest..

2012: Freshman linebacker that played in 12 games for the Seminoles...posted 10 tackles on the season...had a career day against Boston College with six total tackles (four solo)...he also recorded a tackle for loss in the fourth quarter against the Eagles...also a key contributor on kickoff and punt return coverage teams.

PERSONAL: Four-star linebacker with exceptional athleticism who continued the pipeline from First Coast High School to FSU...analysts had been impressed with his ability to make plays all over the field consistently locating runners and tackling them to the ground... rated a four-star linebacker by Rivals, Scout, 247Sports and ESPN...Rivals had him as the No. 30 linebacker and No. 40 player in Florida...No. 35 outside linebacker and No. 37 player in state of Florida by 247Sports...ranked as the No. 28 linebacker, No. 42 overall player in Florida by ESPN...listed as the No. 112 prospect on the Mobile Register’s Super Southeast 120... earned Florida Times-Union All-First Coast Defensive Player of the Year honors as a senior recording 165 tackles, including 39.5 behind the line in leading the Buccaneers to the Class 7A championship game and a 13-win season...named to the 2011 Times-Union Super a junior, finished with 110 tackles, eight sacks, two forced fumbles and one fumble recovery for a touchdown... selected FSU after once being a verbal commit to Miami.
