AT COLORADO: 2007 (Sr.)—He was ruled academically ineligible in August, and did not participate in games or practices.  He was atop the final spring depth chart at the “X” receiver position, and had arthroscopic knee surgery following spring ball but was already at 100 percent by the start of summer conditioning (first week in June).


2006 (Jr.)—Played in all 12 games, including eight starts, as he caught 21 passes for 232 yards, 11.0 per reception, with a touchdown.  He caught at least one pass in 10 games, with a season-high four for a career best 77 yards against Iowa State, when he made his first career TD reception (26 yards) and his career long play (38 yards).  He had 10 of his catches in the last four games (for 145 yards), and had three-reception games against Baylor and Kansas.  He finished second on the team in receiving (he had the most catches and second most yards by a wide receiver), with three plays over 20 yards and eight of 10 or longer.  On special teams duty, he had two knockdown blocks and a fumble recovery.


2005 (Soph.)—He played in all 13 games including the Champs Sports Bowl, making one start (at Texas in October), as he caught 17 passes for 131 yards, averaging 7.7 yards per reception.  His long gain was 19 yards, and five of his grabs were for 10 or more yards as he was utilized more on short passes.  His top game in both catches and yards came at Miami, Fla., when he had seven for 59; he caught two passes in four other games.  He also ran two reverses for 28 yards, picking up 20 yards against New Mexico State on one and eight against Texas A&M on the other.  He earned seven first downs on the year (one rushing, six receiving).  He played in the bowl game but did not record any statistics.  He enrolled in time for the spring semester at CU, and caught one pass for six yards in the spring game.


JUNIOR COLLEGE (2004; Fr.)—He earned one letter at Northeast Oklahoma A&M, playing wide receiver under head coach Steve Patterson, as the Golden Norsemen posted a 4-5 record.  On the year, he snagged 11 receptions for 105 yards (9.5 average per catch).   


HIGH SCHOOL—A three-time letterman, he was a first-team all-state wide out his senior year, while he also garnered honorable mention all-state honors as a junior.  His senior year, when he also was a team captain, he caught 58 passes for 721 yards and eight touchdowns, averaging 12.4 yards per catch.  He also rushed 17 times for 105 yards and a score, and returned eight kickoffs for 145 yards (18.1).  He set the school single-season receiving yards record as a junior, as he hauled in 71 passes for 987 yards and 11 TDs; he added 80 yards on five rushes and returned seven kickoffs for 113 yards (16.1 per).  The biggest moment as a prep came in 2003 when his team beat Carl Albert 21-14; in that contest he had six receptions for 202 yards and two touchdowns.  Another top moment occurred at the state All-Star game when he reeled in eight passes for 232 yards and one score.  Under coach Travis Hill, East Central was 11-2 both his senior and junior years, winning the district championship and reaching the state semifinals each time.  He also lettered twice in basketball (guard), earning all-state accolades his senior year and honorable mention notice when he was a junior.               


ACADEMICS—His is majoring in Ethnic Studies at Colorado, though also has some interest in video production.  He owned a 3.5 grade point average in high school, and was named the Academic Football Player of the Year during his senior campaign.


PERSONAL—Born October 30, 1985 in Tulsa, Okla.  Hobbies include watching movies, fixing up cars (he wants to own the first Jetta with Lamborghini doors) and spending time with family members.  He’s also a “fashion” enthusiast, as he likes to be the first one to wear any new type that comes out.
