Interesting Tidbit: Played with his brother Andraez, who was also recruited by OSU but is going to LSU.

Primary Recruiting Coach: Dan Hammerschmidt.

Scouting Report and Projection: A taller corner that will likely need the weight room and a red-shirt season to fill out his frame. He has very good cover skills and has played at a high level of football and competition but needs the physical maturation at Oklahoma State. He plays smart and shows toughness on the field. I can see him being a contributor on special teams in his second season and a consistent performer in the secondary as soon as he has the frame to muscle up with the big receivers found across the board in the Big 12.
