From Fresno State Bio: Named an honorable mention All-American by Sports Illustrated, becoming the first offensive lineman at Fresno State to garner All-America accolades since guard Cole Popovich in 2005. … first-team All-Mountain West selection for the second consecutive season … started all 13 games of the season at left tackle, as he closed out his career with 43 career starts, including 42 consecutive … member of offensive line that led the way for one of the nation’s most prolific offense’s, as the Bulldogs led the FBS in passing (394.8 ypg), ranked third in total offense (547.8 ypg) and was sixth in scoring (43.4 ppg) … he and the rest of the team only allowed 11 sacks in 13 games, a figure that tied for the sixth-fewest sacks allowed in the FBS

Enjoys playing video games, cycling, paintball and spending time with family.

From NFL.com scouting report: Efficient college left tackle lacking ideal length and foot quickness to handle edge speed. Is most ideally suited for the inside where he could benefit from working in a phone booth with help on each side of him.
