After redshirting in 2014, he became only the second Tiger freshman in history to earn All-America honors in 2015, when he hit .356 with 58 RBIs and was third in the ACC in batting average. After helping the 2016 team to the ACC championship, he earned second-team All-America honors in 2017, when he hit .361.
