Cluley starting to see recruiting pick up

Many colleges across the country could make good use of an athlete like Waco Reicher's Kenneth Cluley. An all-State quarterback and an all-Super Centex defensive back, Cluley is starting to see some big time programs become interested in his services.

The recruiting picture is beginning to take shape for Waco (TX) Reicher Catholic quarterback Kenneth Cluley.

According to his father, Joe, the younger Cluley has received six Junior Day invites from schools across the country with the likes of Ole Miss and Tulsa (March 29), Colorado and SMU (April 5), and Texas Tech and Iowa State (April 13) all wanting to take a closer look at the Central Texas gunslinger.

Cluley however has had to narrow those six trips down to three because he simply cannot be in two places at once.

"We are not sure where we are going any of these dates but it looks like Ole Miss, SMU, and Tech," Joe Cluley said.

Kenneth Cluley was one of the top dual-threat signal callers in Central Texas last fall as he led Reicher to TAPPS state championship while throwing for over 2,000 yards, rushing for 1,600 more, and combining for 39 touchdowns.

Cluley also excelled on defense earning first team Super Centex honors from the Waco Tribune-Herald as a defensive back after racking up 74 tackles and ten interceptions.

The 5-foot-11-inch, 185 pound Cluley boasts impressive 4.53 speed and while he could make a fine defensive back at the next level, the schools currently after his services have not yet suggested a position change.

As of late Cluley has also received a Junior Day invite from Cal and has made contact with one of his top two choices, Kansas.

"Kenneth had a good talk with Coach (Brandon) Blaney," said Joe Cluley, who added that the Jayhawks staff is currently reviewing Kenneth Cluley's highlight tape.

Cluley's top two choices at this stage of the process are the Jayhawks and 2007 Big 12 North Division Champion Missouri.
