Trevillion was known for his speed while at SDSU where he led the country in yards per reception with a 27.2 average (min. 22 catches). He took his 22 catches and turned them into 598 yards and three touchdowns, which tied him for the team-lead in scores with tight end Kahale Warring and WR Tim Wilson Jr.

He had just 12 starts over the last two years, with 10 of those coming in 2018. In 2017, playing in all 13 games with two starts, Trevillion caught just 12 balls but took them for 327 yards, putting up another average of exactly 27.2 yards per reception.
To begin his career at San Diego State, Trevillion actually started out on the defensive side of the ball where he played the Aztecs’ “warrior” or hybrid safety role. He saw action in 12 games as a true freshman but wound up transferring to Southwest Mississippi College where he first started transitioning to wide receiver. In his lone year at SMCC, Trevillion played in six games and caught eight passes for 231 yards and two scores. In one game, however, he caught three passes for 148 yards and his two lone scores.
Trevillion will find himself in a pretty packed wide receiver room but plays like the one below make it easy to like him. There is always, ALWAYS room for wideouts who don’t mind getting their hands dirty.
