Came off the bench late last season and showed solid potential at the tackle position... expected to be a part of the offensive line rotation in 2009.
Moved up to second on the depth chart at tackle in early November after Andrew Gardner underwent season-ending surgery... saw considerable action vs. Miami (Nov. 20) and at North Carolina (Nov. 8)... saw second-half action in the Duke game (Oct. 4)... saw his first career action in the season opener vs. Jacksonville State (Aug. 28)... a solid offensive line prospect who redshirted in 2007.
Redshirted as a true freshman.
