Floyd Trying to Hold Out for More

The 6-0, 175-pound athlete from Los Angeles (Calif.) Crenshaw, Clint Floyd, who had an impressive summer, is tempted to verbally commit to a Pac-10 school, but is holding out for more interest and scholarship offers from other schools...

Los Angeles (Calif.) Crenshaw athlete Clint Floyd (5-11.5, 175) had a fine summer, earning MVP of the B2G Elite Football Program and looking good in various other camps.

Yet Floyd still finds himself only holding one scholarship offer, albeit from a Pac-10 school.

"Arizona State is still my only offer, but I'm still hearing from Washington, Oregon and a couple of other Pac-10 schools. I hadn't heard from UCLA as much, with Coach (Eric) Scott gone, but I hope that will pick up," said Floyd.

While the Sun Devils remain the only school to extend him an offer, Floyd says another Pac-10 school could be on the verge. "I talked to Coach (Trent) Miles at Washington and he said they might offer even before the season. They're recruiting me mostly as an athlete. I'm hoping to take a trip during our week four (October 5th) since we're off that weekend."

And Oregon, who signed teammate Terrell Turner a year ago, is also taking a close look at him. "Coach Don (Pellum) at Oregon said he really likes me and that they also want me as an athlete," said Floyd.

Arizona State, meanwhile, is using Crenshaw alum and receivers coach Eric Yarber to sway him to Tempe, and the Sun Devils are the favorite. "Coach Yarber said that they would take me as a receiver or cornerback, whichever I want to play," said Floyd. "They were my first offer and that means a lot. He wants me and (UCLA-committed) Kemonte Bateman to take a trip out there this season."

Still, all that could change if UCLA were to get in the mix with an offer. "If they offered me, they would definitely be at the top. Raymond Carter and BP (Brian Price) are recruiting me there and Coach Scott, too. But I just haven't heard from them as much as before. They're recruiting me as a cornerback, too."

Floyd said, because there could be some other offers coming for him, he's willing to wait to make a decision, and hold off on an early verbal, unlike several of his teammates, who have been early commits. He said, "I want to wait until after the season, but there are times where my mind is telling me to decide before. I just want to be able to take some visits and have some other options before I decide."

As a junior, Floyd had eight touchdown receptions and over 600 yards receiving.
