Rotated with Nehemiah Mitchell for much of the year in the OLB role...

In five starts, accumulated 18 tackles and four defensed passes... Career high of five total tackles came in win over Kentucky... Had another career high of four solo tackles in finale at Tennessee... First career QB sack proved a key defensive play in eventual victory over Missouri.

Served as key reserve to starters Kyle Woestmann and Stephen Weatherly... Registered four solo tackles during the season, with stops coming against Ole Miss, UMass, Florida and Mississippi State.
