Big WR Relocates; Lists Favorites

After making a name for himself throughout the Virginia Prep Scene, Brandon Clear is taking his show on the road for his high school swan song. The 6-foot-4, 210 pound receiver is transferring to Hoover High School in Alabama for his final campaign. In the mean time he's been working to make himself even more attractive to potential suitors.

"Right now I have three offers," says Brandon Clear. "Duke, Syracuse, and Stanford have all sent written ones, and I expect to get a few more next week from NC State and Illinois. If I had to give you a list of top schools, they'd be Ohio State, Stanford, Syracuse, Florida, Michigan State, Iowa State, and Alabama."

Due to the move, Clear hasn't been able to make the usual rounds of summer camps that often results in several schools offering scholarships. However, the lack of exposure will likely be remedied by his senior season at Hoover.

"My name is already getting out there, and a strong senior season will certainly get me where I need to be. Hoover already has 10 Division I recruits before I even get there. I think that kind of talent level will really help me improve both on the practice field and on Friday nights."

The pace of the competition won't be the only obstacle Clear and his twin brother Byron (6'5, 210, DE) will have to overcome with the move.

"I was born in Louisiana, but moved up here. I've had to really work out on the track to get in shape so I can perform when we get into that kind of heat and humidity."

Clear says he plans on taking all five official visits before making a decision near the end of his senior season.
