He gained attention from the nation's top school for his USA Today First-team All-American senior season at Wichita High School East.
He won his second consecutive First-team Big-12 honor while helping the Wildcats secure a 10-2 mark during the 2012 season.

His athleticism was praised by coach Pete Carroll, who called him the best linebacker he'd seen in years.
