Missouri Offers JUCO DE

2017 Cisco DE Micheal Clemons (6-6, 240) is up to 10 offers with his most recent coming from Missouri...


"Missouri just offered me," Clemons told JCFootball.com.

The offer from the Tigers joins the nine offers Clemons already had from the likes of TennesseeUtahMississippiKansas State and NC State among others.

Clemons redshirted last season, so this past weekend was his first game at the collegiate level and he posted four tackles and one sack in a loss to Trinity Valley.

"I'm that guy who can use his size advantage well and I have good technique," Clemons told JCFootball.com earlier this summer. "A big thing for me has been working on some new pass-rush moves, making sure I bend that edge well so I can get to the quarterback and also dropping into coverage.

"That's something I haven't done that much of, but I need to be able to do it playing the position they have me playing now."

That position is the hybrid defensive end/linebacker spot that has become so en vogue in both the college and pro game.

"I just love rushing the quarterback," Clemons said. "I have a good motor and my size really allows me to cause problems."

As a prep at Sachse (Tx.) High School in 2014, Clemons was a promising recruit with lots of interest from schools, however, he suffered an injury early in his senior season and that derailed his plans.

"I tore my groin in the first game of my senior season," Clemons recalled. "After that, interest sorta dried up.

"I also was unable to get qualified, so that sorta got me looking around for an opportunity at a JUCO program and Cisco had seen me and asked me to come to their camp. 

"I worked out for them and a couple of weeks later, they called and said they had a place for me here."

Since he redshirted last year, Clemons will play this season for Cisco and then will graduate in May and he will have three years to play three following the 2016 football season.
