AT COLORADO: This Season (Fr.-RS)-He enters the fall still as an unknown, as he finally had the chance to practice after coming back from a hip injury but suffered a bruised knee midway through spring drills.  He did have three tackles and a pass deflection in two scrimmages he was able to participate in.

2011 (Fr.)-Redshirted; he suffered a stress fracture in one of his hips (on June 1) and underwent rehabilitation throughout the season, so he was limited in what he could do in and around practice.

HIGH SCHOOL-As a senior, he earned SuperPrep All-Mid-Atlantic honors, as the publication ranked him as the No. 36 player in the region and the seventh best cornerback and 11th best overall player from the Washington D.C. area.  He was also selected as a first-team Pigskin All-Metro team member at cornerback and was the first-team All-Metro Return Specialist of the Year.  ESPN ranked him as the No. 40 cornerback and the No. 7 player from Washington D.C. and was the second cornerback on that list.  As a senior, he was in on 55 tackles, five for losses including two quarterback sacks.  He had three interceptions, returning two for touchdowns, and 13 passes broken up.  He averaged around 20 yards per punt return, including two for touchdowns, one that covered 93 yards.  As a junior, he had 30 tackles and 16 pass break-ups with four interceptions, three returned for scores.  On offense as a wide receiver, he had 19 receptions for 305 yards and six touchdowns and he returned punts on special teams.  His sophomore season, playing primarily on offense, he had 22 receptions for 408 yards and two touchdowns. His top and most memorable game came his senior year: in a 44-12 win over Dunbar for the city championship, he was in on 10 tackles, two for losses with one sack, and had two pass break-ups and what he termed three "monster hits."  In a 33-18 loss at Glen Mills in Pennsylvania, he had 12 tackles, one for a loss, and had two pass break-ups in the game where he returned the punt 93 yards for a TD.  His best offensive game came his junior year in a 39-7 win over Roosevelt when he caught five passes for 120 yards and two touchdowns.  Under coach Greg Fuller, Howard D. Woodson compiled a 29-10 record his three years there (10-3 as a senior, 9-4 as a junior, 10-3 as a sophomore) and won the Washington D.C. City Championship all three years. 

ACADEMICS-He is majoring in Communication and is also interested in obtaining his Entrepreneur Certificate.  He was a member of the National Honor Society in high school, as he maintained above a 3.5 grade point average. 

PERSONAL-He was born June 11, 1992 in Washington, D.C.  His hobbies include acting and modeling.  First cousin is Thomas Robinson (All-America basketball player as a junior at Kansas in 2012) and Don Hursey (a former defensive back at Texas Tech).  He has auditioned for a few major productions including the HBO original show The Wire and he made a cameo appearance in a friend's music video.  He has modeled in a few shows for local photographers in the D.C., Maryland and Virginia area.   He frequently visits his old neighborhood to encourage kids to make the right decisions as they grow up.  Great sources of inspiration to him are his father, who he lost to prostate cancer in July 2010, and his best friend, who was killed in the same year; his father never told him he was dying and that he was only sick, but in his final weeks and days taught him several invaluable life lessons.
