Notes: From Quincy, FL. Reserve running back and special teams contributor, appearing in 13 games, made 3 tackles and rushed once for 3 yards, in 2014. Played in 9 games, rushed 23-111-1 (4.8 avg.), caught 5-39-1, and made 3 tackles on special teams in 2015. Played in 4 games, rushing 5-44, before suffering a concussion and ultimately medically redshirting in 2016. Appeared in 12 games with 2 starts, did not carry the ball, but caught 4-50, in 2017. Pleaded no contest and paid a $290 fine to a misdemeanor marijuana possession charge stemming from a December 2017 incident in which he was stopped at about 2:00 a.m. shortly after the Seminoles returned from their Independence Bowl win over Southern Mississippi. Appeared in all 12 games, primarily on special teams, with 4 tackles and 1 forced fumble in 2018.

Positives: Very good run skills for a fullback, with quick feet, shiftiness and above average speed. Good hands. Catches the ball well. Has the tools to be an effective lead blocker.

Negatives: Needs to improve blocking technique. Underproducer for much of college career.

Summary: Flashes talent, but has either been underutilized or too inconsistent to merit a more significant role.
