The native of Stillwater, Okla. was named First-Team All-America by Baseball America prior to the 2004 season and was rated by the same publication as the draft's second-best athlete and third-best power hitter among college players. The 6-foot-2, 215-pounder hit .364 (211-579) with 25 home runs and 132 RBI in three seasons at Oklahoma State.

He owns the school record for most career touchdown passes (55) and set a Cotton Bowl record with 307 passing yards vs. the Mississippi on January 2, 2004.
