One of the better looking kids at the recent Rivals.com Junior Day in Anaheim, Calif., was Danville (Calif.) San Ramon Valley running back Roy Helu.
Not only are his physical measurements impressive – he measured in at 5-foot-11 and 207 pounds at the junior day - Helu rushed for 1,526 yards and 19 scores as a junior.
He also posted an impressive 8.2 yards a carry average and caught 30 passes for 500 yards and four scores.

"I'm versatile and explosive," Helu said. "When I get the ball in my hands, I make good things happen. I like to explode through the hole and make big plays."
According to his coach, Dave Kravitz, all of those things combined have prompted Nebraska to step up with a scholarship offer.
The Huskers entered the fray first with an offer, but other teams like Cal, Kansas State, Miami, Oregon, USC and TCU are showing a lot of interest.
Helu, a first-team all-league selection that has been timed at 4.4-seconds in the 40-yard dash, said he has a few things in mind when it comes to picking the perfect school.
"The school's prestige is going to be important to me," he said. "I'm also going to look at the school's academics and the football tradition."
