"I had a good visit," Clayton said. "I really liked the campus and the coaching staff at Northwestern.
"Northwestern is the team to beat but I'm going to take a few more visits.

The 6-foot, 200-pounder, from Alexandria (Va.) Mt. Vernon was released from his Florida State scholarship last month.
Clayton was one of the top running back prospects in the nation a year ago.
