2009 (Senior): A preseason all-conference selection, played all 12 games, with 10 starts, and became the first CSU player to lead the Rams in receiving for consecutive seasons since David Anderson (2003-05)...Had 49 catches for 734 yards (15.0 avg.), but didn't reach the end zone...Finished his career tied for 10th on CSU's all-time receiving yards list with 1,848, matching Dallas Davis (1997-2001)...On the ground, had three carries for 56 yards...Also received recognition on the 2009 Biletnikoff Award watch list...In season-opening win at Colorado (Sept. 6), drove a dagger into the Buffs by hauling in a 45-yard pass from Grant Stucker down the right sideline early in the final period; the play set up CSU at the CU 2, and led to a field goal...Also blocked extremely well during Buffs contest, according to coaches...In 24-23 win vs. Weber State, delivered several highlight-reel catches en route to his fourth career 100-yard receiving game; first, caught a 23-yard pass to set up a first-quarter field goal, then hauled in an early candidate for Catch of the Year, calmly tipping a slightly overthrown pass to himself and breaking into the open field for 39 yards, helping the Rams escape the shadow of their goal line and preserving an eventual seven-play, 85-yard TD drive...In assertive 35-20 win vs. Nevada (Sept. 19), made three receptions - all to convert big third downs, including two on a key second-half touchdown drive...Also against Wolf Pack, drew a pass interference and threw a block to spring RB John Mosure on a 10-yard run to the 1, on respective first-quarter touchdown drives, helping the Rams build a 14-0 lead...In conference-opening loss at No. 19 BYU (Sept. 26), after hauling in a 19-yard pass to pierce Cougar territory, endured a second first-quarter deflected pass that turned into a second interception, and did not play in the game's final three quarters...In bitter 31-29 loss at Idaho (Oct. 3), recorded his fifth career 100-yard receiving game, with seven grabs for 125 yards; in the first quarter, his 19-yard catch converted a key third down and set up the Rams' first touchdown, he moved the chains early in the second half with another third-down grab, and had three catches for 55 yards in the fourth quarter - all for big first downs - including two on the team's late-game touchdown drive...In 24-17 loss vs. Utah (Oct. 10), drew a pass-interference flag early in the second half, helping the Rams on a go-ahead touchdown drive; set up that TD with an electrifying 45-yard run off a multiple reverse, barely missing a score...On CSU's next drive in Utes contest, snared a third-down catch to continue a TD drive that gave the Rams a 17-3 lead...Early in loss at No. 8 TCU (Oct. 17), caught a 15-yard pass to provide important momentum en route to a field goal...Had six grabs in loss vs. San Diego State (Oct. 24), including a first-quarter catch in which he snatched the ball out of the air on an important 13-yard play during a TD drive; threw a key block to help end that drive, on Tyson Liggett's TD catch...Later in Aztecs contest, drew a pass-interference flag on a third-down to keep alive a third-quarter TD march...In loss at UNLV (Nov. 7), made his first college start in his hometown and caught seven passes for 77 yards, including the 100th reception of his career; surpassed both No. 12 Chris Pittman and No. 11 Kory Sperry on the team's all-time receiving yards list...Had three catches in last-second loss at New Mexico (Nov. 21), including a 15-yard grab to move the chains on third down early in the second half; also threw a downfield block to help spring John Mosure on a 39-yard run in the fourth quarter...In final college game, a 17-16 loss vs. Wyoming (Nov. 27), caught a season-high eight passes, for 46 yards, including a third-down conversion that kept alive a march that ended with a go-ahead FG in the fourth quarter.

2008 (Junior): A second-team all-MWC choice (first-team by Phil Steele), the former CSU track athlete started all 13 games...Became CSU's first 1,000-yard receiver since David Anderson in 2005, leading the team in both catches (63) and receiving yards (1,114)...With more single-season receiving yards than all but two players in CSU history, Anderson (1,282 in 2003 and 1,221 in 2005) and Willie Miller (1,193 in 1974), finished fourth on that list...Finished 10th in the nation in average yards per catch (17.7), but of the nine players ahead of him on that list, only North Carolina's Hakeem Nicks (18.0 avg., 68 catches) had more receptions than Greer...Ranked 24th nationally in receiving yards per game (85.7)...Added three TDs...Over the previous 16 seasons, since Greg Primus' 67 grabs in 1991, only Anderson (2003 and `05) had more catches in a single campaign...Also carried once for 5 yards...Made his first college start in season opener, vs. Colorado (Aug. 31)...His first career reception in Buffs contest was the first pass of the game;

CSU's TD gave the Rams a 28-17 lead with less than 10 minutes remaining in 28-25 victory...Caught a career-long 63-yard pass late in loss at Cal (Sept. 27)...Pivotal in CSU's conference-opening win vs. UNLV (Oct. 4), the Las Vegas native caught nine passes for a career-most 211 yards, including his first career touchdown; became only the fifth player in program history to top 200 yards (ranking fifth on the list), and the first since David Anderson in 2004...In Rebels contest, caught passes of 44 and 62 yards to set up important scores in a close game; his 23-yard grab bailed the Rams out of third-and-13 from their own 12, leading to a field goal that helped them overcome an early 14-3 deficit...Later, pierced the deep middle to haul in a 62-yard reception, preserving the play on the 3-yard line after stealing the ball back from a UNLV defender to set up Gartrell Johnson's go-ahead TD on the next play;

in second half, threw a nice block to help Gartrell Johnson to a 26-yard run...In important win at San Diego State (Oct. 25), caught a 48-yard pass on the first play of the second half, setting up a TD that erased the Rams' halftime deficit; later, after SDSU returned the ensuing kickoff for a TD, caught a huge third-down pass to pierce the Aztecs' 10-yard line, setting up another game-tying score, and finally, with the Rams tied late in the third stanza, drew a third-down pass-interference flag to sustain a drive that produced CSU's first lead...In tough, 45-42 loss vs. No. 17 BYU (Nov. 1), had five catches for 64 yards, including a 6-yard go ahead TD in the third quarter, and a 25-yard reception on third-and-5 to pull the Rams out of the shadow of their goal line...At Air Force (Nov. 8), caught seven passes for 145 yards, including a third-down grab for 23 yards on a second-quarter scoring drive, and a fourth-down reception for 23 yards on a gutsy fourth-and-6 call in the third quarter; also broke up a potential interception earlier in the game and posted his first career carry, a 5-yard run...Saw a 44-yard gain wiped out by penalty late in third quarter vs. New Mexico (Nov. 15), leaving him 5 yards shy of 1,000 on the season...In win at Wyoming (Nov. 22) that made CSU bowl eligible, caught an 8-yard pass in the first quarter to move him past the 1,000-yard plateau on the year; then, in the fourth quarter with CSU trailing 20-17, caught a short third-and-8 pass and broke a tackle to move the chains on the Rams' game-winning drive...In New Mexico Bowl triumph vs. Fresno State (Dec. 20), caught the game-winning touchdown, a 69-yard bomb from Billy Farris that gave the Rams a 33-28 lead with 7 minutes left; the catch marked the longest of his career...Responded to Steve Fairchild's challenge after spring practice and held off stiff competition, new to the program in the fall, to keep his starting role...A smooth, polished playmaker, is an excellent route runner, according to coaches, and only lacks experience.
