Named Second-Team All-WAC as both a sophomore and junior at Nevada, and placed on the watch lists for both the Bronko Nagurski Award (nation's top defensive player) and the Butkus Award (nation's top linebacker) heading into senior campaign...Finished second on the Wolf Pack in 2011 with 100 total stops over the course of 13 games, accounting for 5.5 tackles for loss and 1.5 sacks...After red-shirting in 2007, made an immediate impact when he hit the field a year later, placing sixth on the team with 49 stops, third with 12.5tackles for loss...Performs well against the run when the play is in front of him, although isn't very strong at changing direction.
