What's been going on with Clement?
"Today was our first day of two-a-days," Clement informed.
Was he prepared?
"Definitely," Clement answered. "It was a really good day for me. We did some lifting and also recorded our 40 times. I ran a 4.62 40 yard dash today."
So how was the LSU camp last weekend?
"Awesome man," Clement said. "It was exactly what I expected to be. In the morning the coaches had me playing at defensive end and in the afternoon I lined up at tight-end."
How did he perform?
"I did very well," Clement explained. "I know I am a good defensive end, but I guess you could say I kind of surprised myself at how well I did. Then on offense when I was at tight-end, I think I surprised some of the coaches. I do not think they were expecting me to be as fast as I was."

"All of the schools recruiting me are looking at me as an athlete," said Clement. "The category is Athlete/Big. I feel confident playing offense or defense so it doesn't really matter to me where I play. I feel like I have good hands on offense and on defense I move quickly off of the ball. I'm very confident in my abilities."
Note: As a junior, Clement
was named as the District Defensive MVP. While playing middle linebacker last
season he recorded 79 tackles and 3 sacks. On offense, as a tight-end, he caught
12 passes for 182 yards and 2 touchdowns.
