Over his career at BU, he has a 13-15 record and 3.91 ERA in 50 appearances and 37 starts with one complete game shutout and one save as he allowed 128 runs on 260 hits and 89 walks with 147 strikeouts in 234.2 innings.  He was a 2015 All-Big 12 honorable mention and 2014 Big 12 All-Freshman Team member.
