He rushed for 4,049 yards during his career at Washington, the 2nd most ever school history, surpassing the 1,400-yard mark in his junior and senior seasons. In 2011, he earned first-team All-Pac 12 honors in 2011 with 1,488 rushing yards and 12 TDs,  averaging 5.1 yards per carry and  grabbing 31 passes.
