In 2015, redshirted at Wisconsin after transferring from Wisconsin-Stevens Point. In 2014, was selected First-team All-Wisconsin Intercollegiate Athletic Conference and a third-team All-Region selection. As starter at left tackle, he helped UWSP rank third in league in scoring offense and total offense. In 2013, he was a second-team All-WIAC selection at UW-Stevens Point playing in nine games with eight starts at left tackle and was named team’s offensive freshman of the year.
