Making a big splash at combines and seven on seven tournaments gives high school prospects a chance to make a name for themselves.
One Memphis prospect did just that this past weekend at the Badger Sports regional 7-on-7 Tournament held in Tuscaloosa this past weekend.
Memphis Central tight end Cameron Clear put on quite a show, capturing the attention of Scout.com experts in attendance.
"He was one of the better looking athletes at the event," Chad Simmons, Southeast Recruiting expert for Scout.com said. "He definitely passes the eyeball test. He is big and physical and did a good job this weekend."
Clear, a 6-foot-6, 265-pound athlete, claims offers from Alabama, Duke and Memphis. The talented Bluff City tight end also claimed an offer from last year's Tennessee coaching staff. According to Clear, the Vols Charlie Baggett is scheduled to be in Memphis this week to see Clear firsthand.
"Coach Baggett is suppose to be here tomorrow or Wednesday," Clear said. "Coach Hobby from Duke was at practice today."
Clear was excited about the opportunity to show what his game is all about.
"It was good experience," Clear said. "It was a chance for me to show everyone what I can do."
Apparently, he didn't disappoint.
Clear clearly was one of the top athletes at the event, making hard catches look easy.
"Everyone definitely knows who Cameron Clear is now," Tennessee All-Star Coach Byron Devinner told InsideTennessee.com. "He is physical but has great hands. He made some incredible one-hand catches that were unbelievable."
THE INSIDE TAKE ON CLEAR
A big physical weapon on the offensive side of the ball. He made several tough catches look easy. Great size, great flexibility, great hands.
One of the most impressive things about Clear was his physical frame. It's easy to see how Clear could easily grow into a NFL-type offensive lineman.
"His legs are like tree trunks," one Scout.com expert noted. "He has great feet and is very strong. I definitely can see him being an All-American type offensive lineman at the college level."
