Antonio Clay Makes a Decision

Twiggs County, GA linebacker Antonio Clay is one of the best linebackers still available in the Class of '05, but you can now take his name off of that list. Clay decided to end his recruitment on Wednesday morning.

"I'm committing to the Oklahoma coaches as soon as I get off the phone with you. It's a good environment. I had a good visit with the fellas and I think I can make magic down there," Antonio Clay said.

Clay committed to Oklahoma over the summer before flirting with several other schools. What did he like most about the Sooners?

"I like the players. It has to be the players. I just enjoy being around them and if I enjoy being around them, I know I can play with them."

What made him want to end his recruitment now?

"I just didn't want to wait any longer. The pressure was getting to me a little bit. I'm done taking my visits. I'm very solid in my commitment. I'm 100% going to Oklahoma."

What is he looking forward to most about getting to Norman?

"I'm focusing on getting my degree. I want to be an All-American by the team I leave and hopefully get that Butkus Award."

Assistant Coach Bo Pellini had a great deal to do with Antonio choosing the Sooners.

"Coach Pellini recruited me for OU. He's down to earth and he doesn't tell me what I want to hear. He just tells me what I need to hear."

Antonio Clay should blend well with the wealth of talent already prevalent on the defensive side of the ball for Bob Stoops Top Stories
