LB Antonio Clay

Twiggs County High School
CUTigers.com has confirmed that Georgia native Antonio Clay has committed to Clemson.
Clay is a four-star prospect and is currently ranked as the nation's #24 linebacker by Scout.com.
He is described as an active linebacker prospect with excellent speed from sideline to sideline. He can play inside or outside on the next level, depending on the scheme. As a senior, he recorded 136 tackles, 18 tackles for a loss and eight sacks.
Clay, who has been publicly committed to Oklahoma, told the Clemson coaching staff of his decision during a phone call with Tommy Bowden.
Antonio now becomes the 25th verbal commitment to the Tigers in the 2005 recruiting class.
Late Tuesday evening, Clay's uncle said that the decision had taken a toll on the family.
"It has been a rough process for all of us. We worked hard on this decision. We kept working and we just hammered it out. We have finally come to a decision that we can all live with," he said when reached by telephone.
The Georgia linebacker chose the Tigers over Oklahoma, Florida State, Miami, and Georgia.
CUTigers.com will have more on this story after Clay sends in his signed Letter of Intent, which is expected to happen around 10 AM Wednesday morning.
