Counting Down the Big 12's Top Players

One-by-one, we're counting down the Big 12's top players. At No. 11 is imposing Texas A&M wide receiver Jeff Fuller.

11) Jeffrey Fuller, WR, Texas A&M

To let you know just what a rushing team the Aggies have been through their history, receiver Jeff Fuller set a Texas A&M record with 1,066 receiving yards a year ago. He also tied for the school record in receptions with 72 and won the touchdowns record with 12. His 1,000-yard season was the first in Texas A&M history.

All were impressive numbers, especially considering the fact that the Aggies experienced some turbulence at the quarterback position. But that didn't stop Fuller from posting four 100-plus yard games and caught at least one touchdown pass in five consecutive games from the Oklahoma State game through the Texas Tech contest.

At 6-foot-4 and 220 pounds, Fuller ranks as one of the toughest individual matchups in the league, a point he drove home by catching seven catches for 82 yards against high first-round pick Patrick Peterson of LSU in the Cotton Bowl.

And now, with Ryan Tannehill entrenched as a starter, it would seemingly take a disaster for Fuller to not rewrite the A&M receiving record books. He already holds the school record with 28 touchdown catches — just five behind active FBS leader Ryan Broyles — and he needs just nine catches and 336 yards to shake loose Terrence Murphy from the top spot in career catches and receiving yards, respectively. He's caught at least one pass in each of his 33 career games.

For his efforts, the 2010 Biletnikoff finalist has been named to watch lists for the Walter Camp Player of the Year Award, the Maxwell Award and the Biletnikoff, which goes to the country's top receiver.
