He played in one game during his redshirt year (2019), rushed five times for 10 yards in five games as a freshman (2020), and rushed twice for 41 yards and a touchdown in four games as a sophomore in 2021.

The 6-foot-3 230-pound running back prepped at Dupont Manual High School (Louisville, Kentucky).  As a senior he rushed 72 times for 319 yards and four touchdowns before his season ended with a torn labrum in his right shoulder.  He rushed for 631 yards and six touchdowns as a junior, and 72 times for 370 yards and three touchdowns as a sophomore.
