2015 Spring Outstanding Weight Room (Offense)

Redshirt junior who was an integral part of the offense in 2016, as the Gamecocks regularly used him in the slot in a two-tight end set... expected to be a regular contributor again in 2017... a bit undersized, but has excellent hands.

2016: Redshirt sophomore who played in every game with nine starts... logged 23 catches, fourth on the squad, for 217 yards... tied for the team lead with four touchdown receptions... made his first career catch in the victory at Vanderbilt, a six-yard completion that picked up a first down on South Carolina’s lone touchdown drive of the game... caught three balls at Mississippi State for 14 yards and his first career touchdown... started at tight end for the first time in his career in the East Carolina win... caught a career-high four passes for 31 yards against the Pirates... hauled in a key 19-yard reception in the 4th quarter to set up a late field goal... had a career day in a starting assignment against Texas A&M, catching four passes for 51 yards... caught a 16-yard scoring strike against UMass... caught one pass for a game-winning 35-yard touchdown versus Tennessee... caught one pass for a six-yard touchdown against Missouri, which was his third straight week of catching a single pass that went for a score.

2015: Backup tight end and H-back who was used extensively on special teams in his redshirt freshman season... played in the final 10 games after not seeing action in the first two contests... returned a kickoff for six yards at LSU... garnered Outstanding Weight Room accolades for the offense at the 2105 spring game.

2014: Missed the bulk of the season after undergoing surgery on his right foot... made a brief appearance in the Kentucky game but did not record any statistics... petitioned for a medical redshirt.
