OL J.K. Jay Profile
His junior season won't be what 6-7, 275 pound J.K. Jay had hoped it would be thanks to an injury.
"I broke my ankle. I broke it in a scrimmage game," Jay told CUTigers.com in a recent interview. "I played an awesome scrimmage and hurt in near the end of the game. I was making a pancake block and someone rolled over onto the ankle.
"Right now it looks like I will probably sit out this season. I want to make sure I don't come back too soon."
Despite the injury, Jay has still been working hard in the weight room.
"I am working real hard in the weight room. I have been working on my upper body. I have gotten a lot stronger. I am not expecting to lose a bit," he said.
Even though the star lineman has committed to the Tigers, others are coming after him hard.
"Recruiting has really picked up even though I am committed. I am hearing from Auburn, Alabama, Kentucky, Stanford and some others," said Jay.
How firm is Kay with his commitment to the Tigers?
"I am 100 percent firm. I'm not going to change my mind. I was born a Tiger. I will die a Tiger," replied Jay.
The Palmetto standout made a visit to Clemson over the weekend.
"I went up Sunday and hung out with David, Wilson and Mason. They love it up there," said Jay.
Labor Day night expect to see J.K. in the Valley working other recruits and watching his future teammates.
"I will definitely be there. I am hoping to talk with Larry Raper a little before the game. I hope we can get him committed," said Kay.
