The Best Player You've Probably Never Heard Of

Tulsa fullback Charles Clay.

Get to know him as Sunday night he reached the 1,000 yard receiving mark in Tulsa's 63-7 bowl victory over Bowling Green.  Just so we're clear here: he's a true freshman fullback.  There aren't many - if any - fullbacks at any level who can haul in 1,000 receiving yards in a season.  I remember seeing him play in the season opener against Louisiana-Monroe and being immediately impressed.

He led his team with eights catches for 92 yards that day and closed the season with 69 receptions for 1024 yards (14.8 average) and seven touchdowns.  Clay was also third on the team in rushing with 304 yards (5.3 average).

Not bad for a guy who by many accounts was only modestly recruited by the school he signed with, a class-filler type recruit.

Great aritcle. I will have to check Clay out.

At age 18 he already looks like an NFL H-back. They split him wide to create even more mismatches.

Nice find - if they can get a quality QB at Tulsa they may put up ridiculous numbers again next year. They were the only offense to put up 7000 yards in 2007.

UCLA's Trevor "Moose" Theriot is our hands down pick for the best overall fullback in America leading into the 2008 season. Theriot has two years remaining on his pads for the Bruins under Coach RN. And the man will stun America: "Here is a kid that is 235, benches 400, GPA 3.8, 4.5, 13 games starter as a soph, and is NFL combine ready now", says Mike Hooster of North State Training. Theriot hails from lofty Newport Beach, California but to locals is known as "barbed wire man". Adds Hooster: "Theriot's dad is a former world class 800 and 1500 man but also a noted football player in the 70's for that Newport Harbor High that produced world record holder Terry Albritton in the shot, Theriot the fullback was trained on hurdling barbed wire". There is no better blocker in college football and perhaps the NFL.

Look for Theriot.

Who is Trevor "Moose" Theriot

How can anyone compare him to a fullback like Lorenzo Neal, who is the best blocking fullback in the NFL.What a total joke.
Someone is trying way to hard to promote this average player.

I agree, but I also know that CARY HARRIS from Usc is highly under rated and he started 3 years in a row and needs to be recognized for his outstanding defense!
