Freshman (2010): Redshirted in his first season at Buffalo.

High School: A two-time all-conference performer who had 36 tackles, six sacks, a blocked field goal and a defensive touchdown in his senior season, despite playing just 3.5 games…UB coaches describe him as a strong player who has good body control…one of four Western New York players to sign in the 2010 class…also earned multiple letters in basketball…listed UB’s nationally-ranked Business Program as one of the key factors in his college decision.
