LB Antonio Clay
6-2, 227, 4.6
Twiggs County High School
Jeffersonville standout Antonio Clay is not committed to Miami according to his uncle. "That is absolutely not true," stated Mr. Grant told CUTigers.com Tuesday night.
"Something happened today. I had to get them straight about it. I called them to set them straight. He had some pressure put on him yesterday that he should not have. From here on out everything will go through me."
When asked where Antonio is with his decision process, Mr. Grant responded, "We absolutely do not know yet. Clemson and Florida State are still very much involved."
One thing is very clear according to Antonio's uncle. "He will not commit to anyone until we know for sure," Mr. Grant said.
Clemson is still very much in the mix for the star linebacker according to his uncle. "We have always thought highly of Clemson. I'm a South Carolina guy. I grew up in a little town outside of Orangeburg. A lot of guys I played high school football with went to Clemson."
Coach Ron West has built a good relationship with Antonio's uncle and that seems to be helping the Tigers. "I talk back and forth with Coach West all the time. I know Clemson like the back of my hand."
The timing of a commitment is not clear at this moment, but it could come as early as next week. "We are going to sit down tonight and reflect on what has happened today. We may have a commitment next week or it may be after that. We are not sure."
We will continue to keep you updated on this outstanding linebacker from Georgia, right up through signing day 2005.
