"I just got back from a 7 on 7 summer camp at USF a couple weeks ago. I scored one TD on offense and allowed zero completions to my side on defense. The last week or so I have been helping my mom and taking care of her as she just got home from having surgery", said Chris Clinton.
Has Clinton had time to narrow his list of favorite schools?
"I basically have a top 2 as Georgia Tech and Maryland are in a dead heat as
my favorites. I have 6 offers on the table but those two schools are the two I
will make a decision from."
What makes these two so appealing enough to only consider them?
"Both have excellent academics and that is a plus for me. I don't know if
the NFL is in the future for me so I want to make sure I have an excellent
education to fall back on. Right now I hope to major in psychology or maybe
criminal justice. Both schools have great academic programs and that is very
important to me. I the fact that both Coach Gailey and Coach Friedgen both have
a lot of experience and that they will be able to teach me a lot no matter which
school he selects."
Does Clinton have a preference on which side of the ball he would rather play on
the next level?
"On offense it is nice to be able to score from the tight end position but
also to be able to hit as well. On defense, you really get the chance to hit and
make something happen that way. So, basically, I really don't have a
preference, just want a chance to play and help the team however I can."
