Broncos signed Oklahoma RB Brennen Clay.
Clay (5-foot-10 3/4, 202) was the No. 2 running back recruit in the 2010 high school class, behind only Penn State/USC's Silas Redd. (2010 wasn't a good year for RBs.) A committee back for his entire stay at Oklahoma, Clay wound up rushing 379 times for 1,913 yards (5.05 YPC) and 13 touchdowns, with 52 receptions. He ran 4.64 at the Sooners' Pro Day, adding a respectable 9-foot-11 broad jump. Clay has enough talent to be a No. 2 NFL back, but lacks starting-caliber attributes. He'll fight for reps behind Montee Ball and C.J. Anderson. Sun, May 11, 2014 02:44:00 PM

Oklahoma senior RB Brennan Clay accepted an invitation to play in the East-West Shrine Game.

Clay rushed for 913 yards and six touchdowns this past season for an average of 5.8 yards per carry. The senior's production came in bursts, as he dropped 200 yards in a win over Kansas State and another 170 in a victory over West Virginia. Clay may not have lived up to the recruiting hype in Norman, but Bob Stoops didn't help matters with his seemingly random running back platoons.

Oklahoma senior RB Brennan Clay rushed for 170 yards on 22 carries in a 16-7 win over West Virginia.

Clay and Damian Williams practically split carries, but Clay made the most of his opportunities. Oklahoma's offense has really struggled thus far with young passer Trevor Knight at the helm. Knight struggles to pass from the pocket but can move defenses with his feet. We expect the Sooners to rely on the running game throughout this season.

Oklahoma beat writer John Hoover believes that Sooners junior RB Brennan Clay is no longer the odd man out in the team's backfield after his 157 yard performance.

Hoover states that Clay, "finally arrived, finally lived up to his recruiting hype, finally had a big-play, consistent-play, breakout game." Just one week prior to his outstanding performance against Iowa State, Clay only received one carry against Notre Dame. The Sooners backfield is a mess to predict, and the real odd man out is Roy Finch.

Oklahoma junior RB Brennan Clay rushed for 157 yards and a touchdown on 24 carries Saturday against Iowa State.

This was easily Clay's best performance as a Sooner. The junior was able to get a head of steam and break tackles at the second level. He added two receptions for 12 yards.

With depth an issue this spring, Brennan Clay should receive plenty of work toting the football.

Dominique Whaley is not available this spring as he continues to recover from a broken ankle suffered last season and JC transfer Damien Williams will not be in Norman until June. Clay, who was bothered by injuries last season, had a nice contribution (9-44 rush and 3 rec.) in the Insight Bowl win over Iowa. He was 75-274-1 with 18 receptions on the year.

The pre-season AP No. 1 is trying to find a No. 1 running back, a spot that could be occupied by sophomore Brennan Clay.

When Heisman candidate QB Landry Jones turns to hand off the ball in the opener against Tulsa on Sept. 3, Clay could be the man initially getting it in the breadbasket. The sophomore, who had 36 carries last season, is listed atop the Sooners' depth chart at the position. Four others are in the mix, including Roy Finch, OU's leading returning rusher with 398 yards.
