    I think we all knew the prior experiments were placeholders for him. This seems like his best chance to succeed. And it is a position where we could use some reserves.

    Regarding Clay, the key is going to be for him to get himself up to the 255 range by Fall. If he can do that, he can help the defense. In high school, he had great hands and played with great leverage on the inside. I never really understood the fullback experiment.

    This helps our class balance a lot at DT, too. Can't have 2 classes empty. Even if Clay is always a role player instead of ever developing into and every-down DT, that's a role where he can help the Buffs win football games.

    Was 255 a typo? That seems very light for s DT.

    No. He slimmed down to try to play LB and he needs to bulk up. HCMM said that there would be certain games against spread teams where he could do well but other games against teams that pound it and double-team the DTs where he won't see the field. I don't think he'll ever be above the 260s while he's here. He'll be a situational guy. Hopefully another Cunningham once he settles in.
