Player Spotlight: Clay Fuller

All summer long leading up to the opening kickoff for the Baylor Bears, will spotlight players on the 2012 Baylor football roster.

Player Spotlight—Clay Fuller

Clay Fuller joined the Baylor team last season as a walk-on wide receiver after playing minor league baseball with the Angels' organization since 2006. Fuller originally signed a letter of intent to play baseball at Baylor but chose to play in the pros coming out of high school. A Smithson Valley High School product, Fuller brings incredible athleticism to the football field and a mature outlook in the locker room. After all, Fuller is 24 years old. Last season, Fuller saw action in all 13 games for the Baylor Bears, mainly on special teams. Fuller played big in numerous games on kickoffs tallying 7 tackles on the season and recovering a fumble against the Oklahoma Sooners in the waning seconds to seal the Baylor victory. Projection:

Fuller will be a sophomore in terms of classification this season, and will continue to battle to see time at the inside receiver position. He took the opportunity to see the field early on special teams and made an immediate impact for the Bears. We have a feeling Fuller might get some more time at receiver, but we don't think he will be a big factor in the offense just yet. Fuller will be even more instrumental in the special teams progress, and he will look to make an impact anyway he can. Fuller has demonstrated that he is the ultimate team player. He is listed 2nd on the post spring dept chart at inside receiver.
