In 2009 he earned first team All-American honors from CNNSI and the FWAA as well as second team All-American honors from the Associated Press. He was named a consensus All-American his senior year. He was named to the All-ACC first team in each of his last three years and was awarded the Jacobs Blocking Trophy for the best offensive lineman in the ACC in 2009 and 2010.
