  • "Right now, I have offers from Florida, USF, USC, Mississippi State, Penn State, Murray State, Auburn, Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee, Illinois and several more," said Clayton, who is playing in the Peach State Summer Showcase July 18th through the 22nd.

    Other schools are showing interest but haven't offered up to this point.

    "I'm also receiving interest from FIU, Kansas State, Miami, UCLA, Southern Miss and South Alabama," said Clayton.

    As for why he's received so many offers, Clayton explained what he brings to his team when on the court.

    "I can do it all," he said. "I can shoot, pass, dribble, and I can find my open players. Defensively, I get uptight with my man and block shots. I try to get into their head."
