Notes:
Earned an All-ACC Honorable Mention in 2013 and four letters with the Orange ... Was an All-BIG EAST Second Team selection in 2011 ... Finished career with 41 stops behind the line of scrimmage to rank second in school history ... Served as Syracuse's team captain for senior campaign, during which he tied for ninth on the school's single-season record list with 14.5 tackles for loss ... Tallied 64 total stops, including two sacks as a junior ... Recorded 62 tackles, with 8.5 for 41 yards of loss and a pair of fumble recoveries in 2011 ... Made an impact immediately upon arrival, as he registered 51 tackles as a freshman ... Consistently finds his way to the ball through hard-work and effort ... Can be an explosive hitter and an impact player as a pass rusher ... Displayed leadership skills both on and off the field ... Could stand to add bulk and strength ... Does not have enough speed and quickness to immediately contribute as a coverage linebacker ... Will need to rely on toughness and intangibles to make his mark on a special teams unit.
