Ohio State asked him to come and watch their bowl practices for the Fiesta and he is hearing from many other top programs as well. He was a second team all-state selection as a junior after rushing for 1,602 yards and 18 touchdowns.

Phoenix FB Receiving Big-Time Attention

<a href="http://scout.theinsiders.com/a.z?s=148&p=8&c=1&nid=1173968">Matt Clapp</a> looks to be one of the more heavily recruited players in Arizona this cycle. Ohio State asked him to come and watch their bowl practices for the Fiesta and he is hearing from many other top programs as well. He was a second team all-state selection as a junior after rushing for 1,602 yards and 18 touchdowns. Matt may project as one of the top fullback prospects in the nation.

Height: 6-3.5

40 time: 4.6
Bench: 275
Squat: 475

"My early top five are Ohio State, Nebraska, UCLA, Washington, and Arizona State," said Clapp. "I will probably attend summer camps at Ohio State and Arizona State. I am also going to the Arizona Junior Day in March."

Clapp will attend the UA Junior Day with his Father.

He can project at a few positions as he was also an all-conference linebacker as a sophomore. Defensive End and tight end are also not out of the realm of possible positions for Clapp. He does prefer fullback though and feels he has strong abilities lining up at the spot.

"I am just a player that always goes at full speed. I am very good at finding my blocks."

Paradise Valley Head Coach Donnie Yantis says of Clapp, "He is the hardest worker in our program. He is extremely dedicated to being the best. He is a durable player and is very coachable."

Matt carries a 2.7 core GPA and will be taking his ACT soon. He is undecided on a major.
