Clay Burton holds offers from Clemson, Notre Dame, Georgia Tech, Ole Miss, West Virginia, Stanford, South Florida, Purdue, Rutgers, Memphis and Florida International.
Burton talked about visits that he has made.
Florida: "Went multiple times for spring practices and junior days and finally for the Orange and Blue Game and love it up there and it was cool to see my brother finally playing for them and I could definitely call it home. They are one of the best programs in the country and it would be an honor to play there as well as in The Swamp because it is very intimidating to the visiting team. They have a great coaching staff and are never content with their success and always try to get better."
Clemson: "Made my third trip up there for junior day and had a blast talking with the coaches up there and have built a very solid relationship with the coaching staff."
South Florida: "Checked out their junior day with a couple of my teammates and was really impressed with the new staff they installed and the proximity to my house would be very important."
Georgia Tech: "Went up last weekend to their junior day and was blown away by their program. Best combination of education and athletics in the country and could definitely see myself going there because I have family in the Atlanta area too."
Clemson, Notre Dame, Georgia Tech, Ole Miss and South Florida have been recruiting him the most at this time. Burton does not have any future trips set up but one to Notre Dame could be in the works down the line.
Burton spoke about his teammates and what he can bring to the table.
"My senior class has been working hard together for three years and we have a very tight group of athletic and strong players and we definitely have a shot to win the state. My combination of size, strength, speed, and playmaking ability makes me dangerous on defense and I wouldn't mind playing either defensive end or outside linebacker in college. I am also smart and have a high football is. I would just work on getting technique and more of an arsenal so I could be unblockable."
