OUInsider.com has learned that Georgia linebacker Antonio Clay has indeed told the OU coaches that he will be a Sooner and sign with OU on signing day.
"I really wanted to keep this quiet, but you really can't now a-days," Clay told Dave Peters of TheTerritory.org Sunday. "Oklahoma is a great school and will allow me to get away from home and become a man. I want to do my own thing and OU is going to be the perfect place for me."
Clay's positive comments about OU in recent weeks have been interesting because his family has been reluctant to really talk about it and Antonio wouldn't always confirm this. Plus, when it was first reported that he was committed he had not talked to the OU coaches. Now, he has and according to Antonio he is a Sooner.
This is an outstanding get for OU. The Sooners need linebackers, not only for their defense, but for their special teams. And by all accounts, Clay is an outstanding prospect.
This gives the Sooners two outstanding linebackers thus far in Curtis Loftin and Clay. OU also is expected to earn a verbal from Ryan Reynolds at the Scout Network Army All-Star game, and they are very much in the running for Lamont Robinson of Salem, N.J. OU and Georgia are running neck-and-neck right now for Robinson.
