Established himself as one of the most efficient and productive players in school history in his four years as he set Sun Devil records for games played (126) and started (120) while his 1,588 career points (12.6 per game) is good for sixth on the school career list, just ahead of Byron Scott's 1,572. Led team in charges taken with 15 in 2008-2009 and 16 in 2007-2008. His 942 career rebounds (7.5 per game) is second on the career list. Led nation in field goal percentage and set school record in his senior year (2008-09) as he was 198-of-300 (.660), the best mark by a Pac-10 player since Todd MacCullouch of Washington led the nation at 66.2 percent in 1998-99. Also high on ASU career charts for field goal percentage (third at 58.0 percent), free throws made (second at 366), double-doubles (fourth with 29) and blocks (sixth with 131). Earned B.A. in economics in just 3 ½ years as he established himself as one of the best post players in the Pac-10 and impressed not only on the court, but off the court with his demeanor and attitude towards fans, student-body, media and the ASU community. Earned Pac-10 All-Freshman honors in 2005-06 (despite missing all of fall conditioning and most of November after fall surgery to remove a benign tumor in his left leg), Pac-10 honorable mention honors in 2006-07, third-team All-Pac-10 in 2007-08 and first-team honors in 2008-09. Made 370-of-643 (.575) shots from the field in Pac-10 games in his career and the only player in school history to lead ASU in rebounding for four straight seasons. Also shot 76.4 percent from the free throw line in his career (366-of-479). Played for one of the most successful high school programs in the nation, as his Etiwanda (Calif.) teams were 62-5 his final two seasons (2003-2005) under coach David Kleckner and point guard Darren Collison. Mother's name is LaDona Orcutt.

In his senior year he earned first-team All-Pac-10 honors and shot 77.9 percent from the foul line (113-of-145) in addition to leading the nation at 66 percent field goal shooting. Posted 11 double-doubles and averaged 16.1 points and 9.0 rebounds in final 15 games as ASU posted 25 wins for just the third time in school history and for the first time since 1974-75. Helped lead ASU to the NCAA Tournament for just the second time in 14 seasons and for just the fourth time in 28 seasons.

Earned All-Pac-10 third-team honors in arguably nation's toughest conference in his junior year (2007-08) as ASU orchestrated the single-biggest turnaround from 2006-07 (10 wins) to 2007-08 (21 wins). Was third in league in field goal percentage at 59.3 percent. Earned Pac-10 Player of the Week honors after posting season-high 29 points (12-of-16 from the floor) and eight boards in 59-54 comeback win at Arizona on Feb. 10, ASU's first win in Tucson since 1995. Also had 25 points against LSU's long front line in overtime win in Maui Invitational on Nov. 27.

His 9.1 rebounding average in his sophomore year (2006-07) matched the second-best effort by a Sun Devil in the past 28 seasons as he earned honorable mention All-Pac-10. He led team in scoring (12.1 points per game) and rebounding (9.1). Was second in the Pac-10 in field goal percentage (.553), rebounding (8.9 per game), offensive rebounding (3.33) and was fourth in minutes per game (35.5) in league games. Grabbed 19 boards at No. 13 Oregon (Feb. 8) and vs. Colgate (Dec. 19), the most by a Sun Devil since Mike Batiste had 20 vs. Wagner on Nov. 19, 1997.

Easily had the best freshman "surprise" season in the Pac-10 in 2005-2006 as he was ranked among the freshmen league leaders with 10.9 points per game (second), 6.1 boards per game (third) and 0.85 blocks per game (best among freshmen) despite missing all of fall conditioning and most of November after fall surgery to remove a benign tumor in his left leg. Notched Pac-10 All-Freshman honors and. Averaged 13.0 points and 8.3 boards in final six games.
