Named to the All-Big East Conference Second Team as a senior after leading Pittsburgh in tackles with 116, his 58 solo tackles more than all but two of his teammates had total tackles over the course of 13 games...Started all 13 games for the Panthers as a junior, including the last 11 at middle linebacker, resulting in 84 stops...Recognized as Pitt's Most Improved Defensive Player in 2009, starting at the WILL linebacker position and finishing with a team-best 91 takedowns...Has a good football mind and reacts well to action in front of him, but appears to lack the speed and power to be a top performer at the pro level.
