Was recruited to USD by Jim Harbaugh before he took over at Stanford. Spent two years at UCLA, redshirting in 2006. During the 2007 season, he made 5 appearance, including a start at QB in the Las Vegas Bowl against BYU during which he completed 11-of-27 passes for 154 yards and a touchdown.
Transferred to Sac State in 2008 and competed in four games at quarterback, including two starts before injuring his knee, finishing the season 28-of-49 for 415 yards and two touchdowns. In 2009, he appeared in six games as a quarterback, including a pair of starts and also served as the team’s holder on kicks in all 11 games. He led the Hornets to a come-from-behind victory over UC Davis after entering the game to start the second half.
Had another injury marred season in 2010, appearing in just 5 games, and not compiling any impressive stats.
Strengths: Looks the part. Nice size and a live arm. Nice roll outs and can throw while rolling either left or right. Nice pocket presence for the most part. Sets his feet and plants and delivers a nice spiral with velocity and good overall form and stance. Carries out nice ball fakes. If you saw him lead Sac state to a comeback with late in 2009 v. UC-Davis, you would have thought you were looking at an NFL draft pick for sure.
Weaknesses: A total enigma who has bounced around a lot, and never done it for any length of time due to an assortment of nagging injuries. Suffered a serious ankle injury in week three of the 2010 season, and will need to have it checked. Will panic at times, and will telegraph his throws. Not the most accurate, and will force things. Lacks experience, patience and maturity. Huge negative intangibles, but not the off-field kind, at least.
Projection: Has talent, but has never been able to put it all together. Intriguing priority UDFA who could flourish if he can get his mind and body right, and is fortunate enough to be brought in by a patient QB coach."
