Player Bio: UNLV: A speed-burning back out of the Lone Star State who became the first freshman in history to lead the Rebels in rushing in a season ... Expected to battle with newcomer Dionza Bradford for the starting spot this fall ... Named Honorable Mention Preseason All-MW by Phil Steele's ... Finished with eight touchdowns on the year (six rushing and two receiving), which tied the UNLV freshman record for a season (WR Lenny Ware with eight in 1996) ... As a rookie he became the first Rebel RB to earn a MW Player of the Week nod since Frank "The Tank" Summers in 2007 ... Was one of two RBs and four Texans signed by UNLV in 2010 ... A three-star recruit according to Rivals who put up gaudy prep numbers.

2010: Earned his first letter as a Rebel by playing in all 13 games, including starting six at tailback ... Rushed for 546 net yards on 144 carries ... Named MW Co-Offensive Player of the Week on Nov. 15 after becoming the first Rebel since 1994 to score four touchdowns in a game, which also tied the school record. His three rushing scores and one receiving TD highlighted the Rebels' 42-16 win over Wyoming. He netted 70 yards on the ground to go with 12 through the air as he scored in all four quarters of the victory ... Made his first career start at West Virginia and his day included a 45-yard rush ... Also scored his team's only touchdown vs. the Mountaineers with a six-yard scoring reception from Caleb Herring in the fourth quarter ... Started vs. TCU and then the team's final four games (Wyoming, AFA, SDSU and Hawaii) ... Posted team's longest rushing TD of the season with a 46-yard scamper in a victory over New Mexico ... Finished with a career-high 74 yards on 17 carries at CSU ... Career-high 24 carries netted 69 yards vs. Air Force ... Also excelled at receiving out of the backfield ...

Capped the trio of games with 166 yards and two TDs against perennial Texas power Southlake Carroll HS ... Put up 174 yards against Channelview HS and 188 yards against Lee HS ... The 188 yards were part of three straight games over the century mark to end his prep career ... A major reason the Mustangs went 8-4 and advanced to the second round of the state playoffs ...
