Clinton-Dix Gearing up for Junior Day

Ha'Sean Clinton-Dix is emerging as one of the best players in Florida for the 2011 class. With new offers coming almost daily Clinton-Dix has started checking out some of the programs that have offered. This weekend he will be in Tallahassee for FSU's Junior Day.

There may not be a better safety prospect in the state this year better than Ha'Sean Clinton-Dix. The Dr. Phillips standout is starting to garner elite offers from programs all across the nation as his junior film shows he is one of the most explosive and ferocious safeties in the south for 2011. With offers from schools like Florida, Florida State, Alabama, Michigan, Ohio State, Notre Dame and a slew of others Ha'Sean has his choice of any school to go to.

This weekend Clinton-Dix is slated to be in Tallahassee for FSU's Junior Day event. He told NoleDigest that he is looking forward to the visit because he had a great time the when he visited last summer.

"FSU was the first place I ever visited," said Clinton-Dix. "I went to the Showtime camp last summer, walked around the campus and saw the school inside and out. That was a great visit. FSU is very high on my list because it was the first school I visited and it caught my attention from then on."

Ha'Sean is a two-way standout that can excel as a running back or a defensive back, but most of the schools project him as a big safety on the next level. He says FSU wants him in their secondary and feel he is a versatile athlete.

"I've been talking mostly to Coach Fisher and Coach Trickett at FSU," said Clinton-Dix on the coaches recruiting him from FSU. "They're telling me how they want me to be apart of their program. They feel I can play either corner or safety for them. I do want to play defense in college."

One of FSU's best recruiters in 2010 was wide receiver Kenny Shaw. Ha'Sean says that Shaw has been working him hard to follow him to FSU.

"I can go to FSU and play with my friends," said the standout defender. "Kenny is doing a great job of recruiting me."

Clinton-Dix was supposed to visit Alabama last weekend but he missed the Junior Day due to practice for his 7-on-7 team.

As a junior Ha'Sean registered 93 tackles, 13 for loss, three interceptions, and 9 pass breakups. That was good for third team All-State DB for the 6A classification and first team All-Central Florida DB by Orlando Sentinel.
