AT COLORADO: 2014 (Sr.)—He started all 11 games he appeared in, missing the UCLA game with a concussion he suffered late in the USC game the week prior.  He played 853 snaps from scrimmage, with 499 plus plays for a 58.5 plus play percentage; with another 243 plays considered even, he graded out to 87.0 percent for the year.  He had 19 knockdown blocks and seven touchdown blocks, while allowing just one-and-a-half quarterback sacks and six pressures; he was called for just two penalties.  Top plus-percentage grade came against Oregon State (77.3).  He shared the Offensive Trench Award after the season with Stephane Nembot, and in the preseason, he won the Iron Buffalo Award for the offensive linemen for his spring work in the weight room.

2013 (Jr.)—He started all 12 games at left offensive guard, emerging as a consistent performer in the trenches after missing a year with back problems but was finally 100 percent healthy.  He was in for 779 snaps from scrimmage, with 487 plus plays for a plus percentage of 62.5 (game grades were higher, as those took neutral results into account); he played every down in five games and over 90 percent of them in five others.  He had 30 knockdown blocks and two touchdown blocks, while allowing just two quarterback sacks; he was not called for a penalty all season.  He also played an additional eight snaps on the FG/PAT unit on special teams.

2012 (Soph.)—He did not see any action as a nagging back injury bothered him throughout much of the year; he first strained it in winter conditioning drills on February 27.

2011 (Fr.-RS)—He saw action in all 13 games (no starts), playing the last eight games on offense in varying amounts from one to 24 snaps (the latter against Oregon).  He played a total of 77 snaps on the season, and graded out to 67.5 percent, with one great effort block while being called for two penalties.  He played an additional 47 snaps (out of 48) as a member of the Field Goal/PAT unit on special teams.
