WR Damaris Johnson- Senior

BAN Marco Nelson- Sophomore
Tulsa surprised the Conference-USA when they powered to a good year and a dominant bowl appearance. Now with many returning starters (19) the Golden Hurricane have risen to the Top 25. Quarterback G.J. Kinne is one of the best players in C-USA and has a good arm. Unlike many others on the Tulsa squad Kinne become a starter of a three year span. Many of the Golden Hurricane are one-year starters so far. This includes sophomore tailback Trey Watts. Watts has pretty good speed and decent hands. Behind him is junior Alex Singleton and sophomore Ja'Terian Douglas. Kinne's success is helped quite a lot by his dominant options. Senior wide receiver Damaris Johnson is psychical which helps him get space. He's a good long ball receiver and good up close. Other options are junior Ricky Johnson and sophomore Thomas Roberson. The offensive line is decent too with guard Clint Anderson, tackle Tyler Holmes and center Trent Dupy. The defense isn't as good as the offense but is still pretty good. Defensive end Tyrunn Walker and nose guard Derrick Jackson are nice on the line. Senior linebacker Curnelius Arnick is good along with sophomore Shawn Jackson. With these two the linebacker core is nice. Marco Nelson had six interceptions in 2010 and is the best returning defensive player. The secondary got better as the season went on. The special teams is led by Johnson who is the team's kick returner and punt returner.

Heisman Hopeful: G.J. Kinne
C-USA Rank: 1st
