Clax Likes Terps, Hopes Offer Comes

TSR talked to 2012 linebacker Jazzmar Clax about recruiting and his thoughts on the Terps.

How did your high school season go?

It went really well. We won the state championship for the second year in a row.

How did you do personally?

I had over 100 solo tackles and around 130-140 tackles total.

What schools are you hearing from?

Maryland, University of Temple, Minnesota and a couple of other schools.

What position is Maryland recruiting you at?

Mike linebacker.

Who from Maryland are you hearing from?

Coach Bradford

How often do you guys talk?

Pretty often

Have they offered you yet?

No, not yet, but they will be coming up here to visit me over the next couple of days.

Have you been to College Park before?

Yes, I was up there to watch the Maryland/Miami game.

What did you think of your visit?

I had a really good time. I thought the atmosphere was really good. I could see myself playing there.

What is your take on the coaching staff?

I really enjoyed being around those guys. Getting to talk to them. They are very hospitable, and they are a staff that I would love to play for.

What did you think of the Terps uniforms this season?

I thought they were ridiculous. They were crazy.

What type of defense do you guys run?

We run a 3-2-5 stack but it's similar to playing a 4-3 defense.

What are you looking for in a school?

I am looking for a place that I can call home. I place that I feel comfortable at. I want a place that I can make an impact on and off the field. I am looking to major in criminal law and minor in international affairs.

Do you have any official visits lined up?

Yes, I will be going down to Temple on January 20th and I am not sure of my other visits.

Do you think Maryland will be one of those visits?

Yes sir.

What type of player are you?

I am a sideline-to-sideline football player who has a great football IQ. Most times I can read the plays before they happen and I have a great nose for the ball. I understand the game. I follow my instincts and I am also a field leader. I know my defense in and out. I know where other guys need to be and where I need to be on and off the field.

What are you working on most this off-season?

As of now I am working on my speed. I want to get bigger stronger and faster.
