Clemons Receives Another Big 12 Offer

2017 Cisco DE Michael Clemons (6-6, 240) is off to a good start in his first season of JUCO football and he recently received an offer from a Big 12 school...

Clemons informed that he has received an offer from Oklahoma State.

The offer from the Cowboys joins the ones he already had from OklahomaNC StateArkansasMississippi and Tennessee among others. 

Clemons has not set up any official visits yet, but said he does plan to take one to Mississippi in January although that date has not been finalized.

So far this season, in two games, Clemons has posted 18 tackles, 2.5 sacks and 4.5 tackles-for-loss in the first two games of the season.

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 during the 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.
