Prior to being drafted by the Green Bay Packers, Guy played college football at Arizona State University. He has also played with the Indianapolis Colts.

High school career[edit]

Guy attended Western High School in Las Vegas, Nevada, where he recorded 238 tackles (171 solo), 30.5 sacks and three fumble recoveries in his three seasons. As a senior in 2007, he totaled 102 tackles (69 solo), 15.5 quarterback sacks and one fumble recovery.

Considered a four-star recruit by Rivals.com, Guy was listed as the No. 13 defensive tackle prospect in the nation.[1] He committed to the Sun Devils on December 19, 2007, choosing ASU over Arizona, Michigan, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Oregon, and Tennessee.

As a true freshman, Guy played in all 12 games of the season, starting the final eight. He totaled 44 tackles (17 solo), 10.0 tackles for loss (minus 22 yards), two sacks (minus nine yards) and one fumble recovery that he returned for a touchdown. Guy's 44 tackles were the second-highest among Pac-10 defensive tackles on the season.
