Turay cracks "Freaks Week" countdown
Fox Sports college football writer Bruce Feldman showed Rutgers defensive end Kemoko Turay some love.
In Feldman’s “Top 25 Freaks in College Football,” he tabbed the kick-blocking extraordinaire at No. 16. That’s not a bad spot for someone with only three years of football under his belt.
Here’s what he had to say on the sophomore-to-be:
As a freshman last season, the 6-6, 240-pound Turay had 7.5 sacks and blocked three kicks. Not bad for a guy who played only one season of varsity high school football. According to RU head coach Kyle Flood, Turay vertical-jumps 40 inches, runs the 40 in the 4.6 range and has gained 30 pounds since arriving at Rutgers.
With defensive tackle Darius Hamilton banged up to start training camp, another step from Turay would go a long ways toward getting Rutgers back to an eight-win season.
