Florida safety Harvey Clayton Jr. commits to Illini

Florida safety Harvey Clayton Jr. gives Illini fourth commitment on a maniac Monday

Let's now call it "Maniac Monday."

Florida safety Harvey Clayton Jr. became the fourth Class of 2016 prospect to commit to Illinois on Monday, announcing his verbal pledge to the Illini on Monday night.

Illinois also received commitments on Monday from three-star Maryland defensive end Izon Pulley, Maryland three-star linebacker De'le Harding and Massachusetts offensive tackle Eddy Fish.

The 6-foot-2, 187-pound athlete gives the Illini more length and athleticism in the secondary. Clayton Jr. chose the Illini over offers from Middle Tennessee, Temple, Louisville, Florida International and others. New  Illini defensive backs coach Paul Williams and outside linebackers coach Al Seamonson led the recruitment of Clayton Jr.

Clayton Jr. took official visits to both Illinois and Middle Tennessee last weekend. The Big Ten team won out.

"For Illinois ,what stood out was the facilities and tough schedule," Clayton Jr. said. "They also told me I could come in and play as a true freshman."

What was Clayton Jr. looking for in his ultimate destination?

"Academics, environment and a good stable place that could help me be successful," he said.

Scouting report

"Clayton Jr. provides Bill Cubit and Illinois with intriguing size and length in the back end at free safety. The 6-foot-2, 190-pound Clayton has good range, and really does a nice job of getting to his spot and tracking the football through the air. Clayton also flashes good body control and balance when diving to the grass to make acrobatic interceptions. He's a kid that's always willing to lay out and make that big play on the defensive side of the ball. Clayton is a good athlete, but not a great athlete. Getting stronger and playing with more physicality in the run game are things he needs to continue to work on as well, but this is a kid that's coveted for his ability to cover ground and make plays on the football." - Corey Bender, Scout.com Florida recruiting analyst
