At this point I feel for Antonio Clay.
Clay, a 6-foot-1, 207 pound linebacker from Jeffersonville, Ga, is close to commitment to OU, but he can't pull the trigger. He told the Scout Network's Ryan Jordan Wednesday that he was committing to OU and that he was going to call the Sooner coaching staff.
Antonio told me today that he did talk to the OU coaches, but that he didn't commit to them. He said that after he talked to Ryan that he talked some things over with his mother and that she wanted him to take a few more days to think about it.
"I just need to collect my thoughts," said Clay. "Oklahoma is a long way from home and I need to make sure my family is OK with it. All the schools I am considering are away from home, but Oklahoma is the longest distance."
Clay says he really likes OU and can see himself playing there, but at this point he is still undecided on what he wants to do and it is still going to be a few days before he makes a decision.
