OU signee Brennan Clay carries on San Diego running back tradition

BY JAKE TROTTER, Staff Writer, Published: February 3, 2010

San Diego has a proud tradition at the running back position.

Heisman winners Marcus Allen, Reggie Bush, Rashaan Salaam and Ricky Williams lead the way.

But no San Diego back totaled more than 1,000 yards rushing and receiving in the same season until Brennan Clay did it two seasons ago as a junior.

The Oklahoma-bound playmaker followed that up with another huge season, rushing for more than 2,000 yards and 27 TDs as a senior.

Clay is ranked the No. 2 all-purpose back in the country, and eventually is expected to fill the role at OU played most recently by DeMarco Murray as a combination running back/slot receiver.

"Brennan is a really good guy," said fellow 2010 OU commitment, quarterback Blake Bell. "Great player, too."
