Clement rusty at LB, but still one of La.'s best

Chris Clement of Thibodeaux-E.D. White (La.) has not played linebacker for nearly two years but he will enter his senior season as on of the top prospects in the state at that position.

He stands 6-foot-1 and weighs 243 pounds with legitimate 4.7-speed in the forty yard dash.

As a junior, Clement was in on 63 tackles and registered seven sacks from his defensive tackle spot. He is very unselfish and has a lot of versatility which has impressed college coaches from all over.

"We started him at strong safety in the first game but he agreed to move to defensive tackle because we had a hole to fill," said E.D. White head coach Kyle Lasseigne. "We probably did the kid an injustice playing him there but we had to. I think we will be able to move him to defensive end this year and he is probably more of a linebacker/defensive end guy on the college level."

Clement has made two unofficial visits in the past month to LSU and Tulane and he gave good reviews to both schools.

He has strong ties to the LSU program since his late uncle Eric Andolsek played for the Tigers and is one of the best offensive linemen to ever wear the purple and gold.

"I've been a Tiger fan for my whole life," Clement said. "That would be a dream to be able to play there."

This past weekend Tulane got a visit from the defensive standout and it looks like the Green Wave also has what he is looking for in a school.

"I had a real good visit," Clement told Tiger Rag. "I liked the people and the atmosphere. Everybody treats you like you are family over there. I didn't get an offer but it seems like they are real interested."

Auburn and Miami are also in the mix for his services but he said he would like to stay close to home to play his college football.

"He has a great motor and he is real strong and powerful," Lasseigne said. "He has a mean streak and he doesn't give up on any plays."

It looks like Clement has more than a little bit of Andolsek inside of him.
