Although listed as a fullback, primarily due to his 6'3", 240-pound frame, Charles Clay was as diverse a weapon as he was a bruising runner.
In 2010, Clay led Tulsa in receiving touchdowns with seven and was second in receiving yards with 526, all out of the backfield.
In fact, after spending a career lining up in various formations, Clay concluded his Golden Hurricane career with 2,544 receiving yards and 911 yards rushing.
His 38-career touchdowns (28 receiving, 10 rushing) ranks second all-time at Tulsa, and his more than 2,500 receiving yards is the sixth-best in school history.
While his diversity is his primary strength, it’s also a minor weakness for the Little Rock, Ark., native, as he’s never been the featured back or primary offensive option.
Following a prep senior season at Little Rock’s Central High School where he rushed for 891 yards and 11 touchdowns to go along with his four receiving scores, Clay was rated the 13th best collegiate prospect in Arkansas by Rivals.com.
