Notes:
Earned an All-Conference USA Honorable Mention following his junior season ... Ranked fifth on Memphis with 58 total tackles in 2013 after being one of seven Tigers to record a tackle in every game of the campaign ... Led the Tigers' secondary with 66 total stops, which he accompanied with three interceptions, five pass breakups, a fumble recovery and a quarterback sack in 2012 ... Posted 35 total stops in 2011 and 17 tackles in seven games as a freshman ... Possesses tremendous speed, leaping ability and size for a safety ... Tends to mistime jumps and fail to capitalize on interception opportunities ... Has trouble bringing down ball carriers if he is not presented a clean angle ... Could be a factor due to his excellent physical skill set, but will need to be molded and coached for some time before he is ready to compete at the next level ... Could compete for a job on a special-teams unit due to his tremendous straight-line speed.
