This was highlighted by a streak of 10 consecutive games rushing for over 100 yards, which set an A&T single-season record.
In addition to being named to the All-Big South first team, he was named to the FCS All-American Third Team and the Walter Payton award watch list.
The All-American running back received numerous offers from Power five programs including Florida, Kansas State, Mizzou, Georgia, and Virginia Tech before committing to Boston College.
More recently, Aggies linebacker Jacob Roberts announced he would remain in-state playing for Wake Forest.
