Notes:
2012 All-Conference USA First Team selection when he amassed four interceptions, two of which he returned for TDs...2011 Conference USA Defensive Newcomer of the Year and an all-league second team pick after posting 66 tackles, 11 PBU, five forced fumbles and two interceptions as a junior...Prior to suiting up for Houston, helped lead Navarro College to the 2010 National Junior College championship as a sophomore...Senior season cut short after suffering a freak injury in practice that almost proved fatal, as he had a tear in his inferior vena cava requiring emergency heart surgery...Apparently recovered enough to run a blazing 4.33 in the 40-yard dash at Houston's Pro Day, just four months after surgery...A lack of ideal size and strength work against him, as does obvious Injury concerns...Real good athlete though, and straight-line speed is certainly attractive to prospective suitors.
