Player profile

2013 OUTLOOK:

Strong-armed, mobile quarterback, who spent his second season with the Seminoles as the third-string quarterback but enters the fall as the lone signal caller to take any snaps in a collegiate game. Will be in a three-way battle for the starting spot vacated by EJ Manuel. Had another solid spring practice in 2013, showing good game management in scrimmages and the annual spring game where he completed 15-of-26 passes for 186 yards and a touchdown playing for both the Gold and Garnet teams. His athleticism from running a wing-T offense in high school and being an all-metro player as a forward in basketball gives him great ability to make plays on the run as well as moving around in the pocket.

2012:

Redshirt freshman backup quarterback who saw action in four games…completed 3-of-5 passes for 45 yards over three games (Murray State, Savannah State and Wake Forest)…threw his first career touchdown pass, a 19-yard strike to Kelvin Benjamin in the win over Savannah State.

2011:

Redshirt season
