Toney Clemons Profile
Four-star wide receiver Toney Clemons (6-3, 185, 4.45), from Valley High School in New Kensington (Pa.), still denies having favorites, but said he is very interested in Pittsburgh, Michigan, Akron and Colorado. All have offered.
"Pittsburgh is my home team and they treat me well. The head coach, (Dave) Wannstedt, is down to earth and he's a legend. He already knew so much about me when I sat down to talk with him. The campus is 20 or 30 minutes away. It's good to be close to home, but home is always going to be there; so I wouldn't mind getting away for college," Clemons said.
"I visited Michigan in early June for a one-day camp. I felt really comfortable on the campus, and I think life there would be comfortable too. The coaching staff didn't question me, they just talked to me like a person," he said.
"Akron is recruiting me the hardest. I went for their junior day, and they have great facilities. The coaches are straightforward with me and they gave some great players on the team. I think it's an up-and-coming program because the head coach came in and won a national championship. They're also not afraid to compete against bigger teams, and that competitiveness is big to me.
"Colorado had given me a verbal and I recently got the offer in the mail. My friend, Devin Johnson (linebacker, Woodland Hills High School in Pittsburgh), and I are going to try to put our schedules together and visit Colorado, because he has an offer from them too. I would like to see the area and what the program's all about. I know they play a lot of games on TV in the Big 12 and that's good exposure. They have young talent and they ran a good offense last year," Clemons said.
"I'm going to wait out my decision. I want to be part of a successful program that can get me to the next level. All the colleges offer a great education, so that's not a factor. Neither is location," he said.
He reports a 2.4 core GPA and 900/1600 SAT.
