High SchoolHightower (Houston, Texas)
First Team All-Pac-12 Conference selection in 2011...Started all 13 games at right defensive end during senior campaign, recording 55 tackles and a team-best 10.0 tackles for loss and 5.0 sacks...Started 40 games in four-year career at Utah, starting out at tackle before shifting to his natural position at end, although considered a bit of a tweener for the NFL, meaning a transition to outside linebacker could be eminent...A solid all-around player and a good athlete, but fails to stand out with any particular trait or skill...Inconsistent throughout college career and showed a lack of instincts despite extensive playing experience...Possible late-round value for a team in need of a rotational player.
