He then played college basketball for the Miami Hurricanes of the University of Miami, where he was a three-year starter and finished his career averaging 11 points per game. He was named Third Team All-Big East his junior year and Second Team Verizon Academic All-American his senior year. He was inducted into the University of Miami Sports Hall of Fame in 2014.
