2011 Team Preview: Fullerton (Offense)

Every year, Fullerton College has double-digit players who sign with D-1 schools. JCFootball.com got the thoughts of quarterbacks coach Thomas Maher and today we take a look at the list of top offensive prospects on the Hornets' roster and lists who to watch out for this fall...

Offense

QB Matt Goggans - Backed up to Darius Banks last year. Big, strong leader. Expected to be a D-1 prospect. He turned down several D-2 and NAIA offers last spring to return for his sophomore season.

TE Dakota Mosley - Was a two-way star coming out of high school in Little Rock, Ark. Signed with Auburn and red-shirted 2010. Transferred to Fullerton in late July. 4-2-4 prospect who needs to get AA degree so it could be spring before he is able to leave. Sure-handed and a good route-runner.

TE Brandyn DeForest - Former basketball player who is an impressive player. Should be a great blocker this fall.

RB Kelvin York - Strong inside runner with enough speed to get outside. Had a huge freshman season in 2010 posting over 1,400 yards and 17 touchdowns. Tended to gravely ill sister in 2009 and did not work out much, so now that he's focused on football, he is set to have an All-American season. Committed to USC, but was offered by pretty much every school that came by the Hornets' spring practices and as his coaches have noted, "he is humble, a great teammate and has so much respect for team and players".

RB Justin Torres - Signed with Colorado after finishing up at La Mirada (Ca.) High School and played as true freshman. Is a very good athlete and can even double as a fullback when needed.

RB Jason Douglas - Diminutive player, who signed with Pittsburgh out of high school. Has a rep as an explosive return man, but can be effective as a change-of-pace back for the Hornets this fall.

RB A.J. Coleman - In addition to playig football, he's also a standout on the Fullerton track team as well. Has quite a bit of speed and runs hard for a 5'9, 185-pounder.

RB Kyle Dravis - Special player, but, hurt his hamstring in July workouts, so it remains to be seen if he can be a contributor this year. Dravis is a player who may go D-1 without playing for Fullerton this fall.

FB Jamison Sterns - Was a basketball super-star who has a football body. Great athlete with some speed who the Fullerton coaches feel they can use in many different ways. SMU is already showing a lot of interest in him and other programs are starting to pick things up as well.

WR Roy Reid - Impressive as a freshman in 2009, but was injured in 2010. Fullerton coaches feel he will be the top receiver in 2011. Very aggressive, possesses a great vertical, very good speed and has great hands.

WR Willie Clark - A vertical threat with long legs and speed. Has really developed into a solid player after bouncing around at some different JC programs (Fort Scott and Independance in Kansas).

WR Terrence Asberry - A talented player who will need to go D-2 because of his clock.

WR Dylan Bradley - Has worked hard to become a good player. Is a superior route-runner, has great hands and is smart. Very aggressive and a leader on the team.

WR Tobatain Taylor - Fullerton's fastest receiver and is continuing to learn how to be a good receiver. Most likely headed to a D-2 school due to clock, but could be special at that level.

WR Keyon Lee - Super quick athlete and is very fast. Lee is a player that may red-shirt and continue to grow both on and off the field.

OT Mike Saenz - Saenz was a starter 2009 with John Cullen (Utah). All-American candidate. Fullerton has four future D-1 tackles and he is the best of the bunch.

OT Cody Clay - Played for Mater Dei, one of the top prep programs in the state of California, and suffered a shoulder injury his senior year. Wasn't recruited, so headed to Fullerton in order to gain some D-1 looks. The Fullerton coaches feel he will be a highly recruited player following the season due to his athleticism, size and the fact that he will have four to play three.

OT Brock Holbert - Tough, hard-nosed and athletic. Holbert could play tackle or guard this year, depending on the needs of the team. Coaches feel he will be another highly-recruited offensive line prospect.

OT Nate Frierson - Basketball player who is just now starting to focus on playing football. Fullerton coaches feel he will be a great one and could play some guard if the need arises.
OG Charles Lee - Played right tackle in 2010. Makes the move inside to guard after getting bigger and stronger. Has a chance to garner a lot of interest from four-year schools with a big 2011 season.
