Left FSU as school’s career leader in kick return attempts (94), yards (2386) and average (25.3) ... Gained notoriety as a freshman on FSU’s 2013 national championship team, when he returned a kickoff 100 yards for a TD in the fourth quarter of the BCS National Championship Game to take the lead and help boost the Seminoles to victory ... Originally signed with Chicago as a college free agent in 2016, then was waived after rookie minicamp and signed with Bengals at beginning of training camp.
