Tayo Fabuluje

From Lagos, Nigeria, Fabuluje (6’7″, 360 lbs) was named to the Arlington Times-Register’s Football Super Teams Offensive Second Team and an All-State selection. He committed to BYU, but transferred to TCU after his Redshirt freshmen season.

Fabuluje became an anchor on the Horned Frogs Offensive Line. In his first season, he was named All-Big 12 Honorable Mention Offensive Newcomer of the Year after making 10 starts at left tackle, enabling TCU to rush for 1,977 yards and 13 TD’s on the ground.

During his final season at TCU, Fabuluje started 12 games at LT for an offense that finished 2nd in the nation in scoring (46.5 points per game), and tied for 5th in the nation in total offense (533.0 yards per game). He was an Associated Press second-team All-Big 12 selection and an honoable mention All-Big 12 pick by the conference coaches.

Fabuluje was drafted in the 6th round of the 2015 NFL Draft by the Chicago Bears. Unfortunately, Fabuluje was suspended for 4 games the following season for violating the NFL’s performance-enhancing drug policy.

In 2018, at age 26, the immensely talented Fabuluje will join The Spring League looking for another chance at NFL glory.
