In 21 games, the 23-year-old recorded 63 total tackles, 18.5 tackles for loss, 10.5 sacks, two forced fumbles and one fumble recovery. His eight-and-a-half sacks in the 2021 season was the third most in the conference and earned him First-Team All-ACC honours.

Prior to that, the Texas native spent his first three collegiate seasons (2017-19) at McNeese State University. In 30 games, he racked up 94 total tackles, 26 tackles for loss, 16 sacks, one interception, 12 defended passes and four forced fumbles.
