OL Nick Claytor Profile
6-6, 290 pound offensive line prospect Nick Claytor picked up an offer from Clemson earlier this week when he spoke with assistant coach Ron West.
"My recruiting coordinator coach West told me that he had been watching my film and that he was impressed. He said they had decided to give me an offer," Claytor told CUTigers.com.
"I know have ten offers right now," he said. "Clemson, UAB and Mississippi State are the latest to offer."
When asked if he has any current favorites, Claytor responded, "I'm still even. I'm looking mostly at the schools that have offered. I am also looking at Florida and Ohio State but they have not offered yet."
The Gainesville, Ga. standout will travel to Atlanta this weekend for another visit. "I am taking a few teammates to Georgia Tech on Saturday for their spring game. It will be good for my teammates to get some exposure," he said.
Don't expect a commitment from the prize recruit until sometime this fall.
"Yeah I am going to decide sometime during the season. After I take my official visits I will make my decision," he said. "I will narrow things down after summer camps. I know I will go to Ohio State and Florida this summer. I will probably also go to Georgia and Auburn. I am really trying to work it out still. I have a lot of schools that want me to come to their camp."
What will be most important to the powerful lineman when he selects a college? "I will look at how close it is to my family," he said. "They really want to see my games. A lot of my family lives in Ohio so that would be okay as well. I am not going to go where they don't really need me. I will look to see how comfortable I feel at the school," replied Claytor.
