2008 — Sharing billing as Oregon’s third-leading receiver, the 11-game starter stands seven receptions shy of equalling the school’s career record for receptions (178, Samie Parker, 2000-03). Ranks third on school’s all-time list for catches and sixth in career receiving yards (2,494). Also stands second all time with 10 100-yard receiving efforts and is tied for fourth in career TD receptions (20).

One of the program’s strongest pass catchers ever, boasts of a share of Oregon’s school record in the back squat (375 lbs., 2007-08), the top power clean mark of all-time (352 lbs., 2007) and the third-best bench press ever (340 lbs., 2007) among wide receivers.
2007 — Team’s leading receiver for the second year in a row improved his yards-per-catch proficiency to a 15.3-yard average over a 2006 season that perception views as superior to 2007. The honorable mention all-conference selection (Pac-10 coaches) and second-team all-league pick (Rivals.com) ranked sixth in the conference in receiving yards per game (64.9 avg.). Only two other receivers in school history have ever posted more 100-yard games in one season than his four in ‘07, which included a season-high eight catches for 120 yards at Arizona. His nine career receiving efforts over the century mark stands only two shy of the school record. Encountered his best year yet in touchdowns scored (8) and is eighth in all-time TD catches (17), with three of the year’s scoring strikes exceeding 45 yards.

2006 — After coming off the bench in the year’s first two games, the Ducks’ receiving leader proceeded to start the next eight games. The Biletnikoff Award semifinalist thrived in his role as a team leader, completing the season second in the Pac-10 in receptions per game (19th nationally) and fourth in receiving yards (19th in the country). Numbers for the nine-game starter were good enough to rank second all time on the school’s one-season receptions chart and eighth in receiving yards. His production as one of the nation’s best warranted him honorable mention all-conference acclaim. Oregon’s fourth-leading scorer (36 points) equalled a school record by accumulating five games over the century mark in receiving yards, led by a career-high 177 yards against Oklahoma. Added a personal-best 10 receptions at Arizona State as he paced the squad in catches in six of the 12 games he played.

Rewarded as Oregon’s Duane Cargill Award recipient as the skilled player making the greatest impact.

Caught his first collegiate touchdown pass at Stanford and followed that up two weeks later with a score against the Huskies. Caught passes in six of his 12 appearances, including three receptions for 52 yards in his lone start of the year at Washington State, with 11 of his catches occurring in the last half of the season.
