Clay Belton Talks Recruiting

The Clayton Northmont quarterback has finished a season that saw him overcome a thumb injury by leading his team to the first round of the Ohio Division I state playoffs. Now the big guy talks about his college recruitment with Bearcat Insider.

Clay Belton has already taken a couple of his official visits. He went to Manhatten, Kansas a couple weeks ago to witness the Wildcat upset of Texas. He talked briefly about that game. "It definitely was exciting. It's an exciting time for their program." The following weekend he went to Miami of Ohio. "I went to Miami last weekend. I'm kind of hitting them all quick. Other than that, I haven't lined up any others." Miami played at Bowling Green during the week so Clay's visit was a little unusual since the Redhawks didn't have a game during his visit.

Clay reports scholarship offers from Kansas State, Cincinnati, Miami of Ohio, Bowling Green, Toledo and Duke but says he's still very open to all schools. "I'm still considering everybody right now. I don't have a list or a top five. I'm kind of open-minded right now. I'm trying to get a feel for the different programs and see which one I like the most." Clay said the schools call him once a week, but when asked specifically about the Bearcats, he replied. "Actually, I haven't heard from Cincinnati for a while."

Since some of Clay's contenders are BCS schools and others aren't, he was asked if he considers such things in making his decision. "Not really. I'm just going to go where I feel the place is right for me as far as the coaching staff, the school and the offense."

Before making his college decision, Clay is trying to take everything into account. "I feel like playing time is an important factor too." Clay said he looks at the schools' rosters and the number of quarterbacks already on campus as well as their commitment lists. (Although some people like to criticize websites like ours, in this area they certainly can be a valuable tool for recruits.)

A thumb injury suffered against Miamisburg High School cost Clay some playing time, and he feels it may also have hurt his recruitment. "If you look at statistics and things, than yes, and as far as different colleges coming in, than it did a little bit."

The majority of the schools recruiting Clay are fairly local so he was asked how far away he was willing to go for school. "I don't think distance from home is a negative or a positive. It definitely could be an adjustment because of the distance from my family, but it won't be something where I'll turn away from a school because of distance. I‘m open-minded about it."

Seeing the Kansas State offense up close and personal left a positive impression on Belton. "I can definitely see myself running that offense. They run a pro style offense and throw the ball a lot. That's something I want to do. I have aspirations of taking it to the next level after college so I'd like to be in a system where they throw the ball."

Since Bowling Green is a contender for Belton's services, he was asked if seeing the Falcons playing in that mud hole of a home field last week against Miami hurt their chances of getting a skill player like himself. "I understand what you're saying, but if I go to the MAC or any school, there's a good chance I might have to play at some point in those conditions anyway. I'm not always going to be on Field Turf so I have to prepare myself for anything."

As things stand now, Clay has no other visits planned and said no decision is imminent, but the fact that Cincinnati hasn‘t even called in a while would seem to indicate that the Bearcats are not serious contenders at this time.
