Clements has a big year for Butte

Unfortunately, talented football players can sometimes get lost in the numbers game and Butte WR Taylor Clements (5-9, 185) may be just such a player. He had a huge season for the Roadrunners, but as of yet he hasn't gotten the recruiting attention his productivity deserves. Read on to hear what schools have been talking to him and what he thinks he could bring to a four-year program.

"We had a fun year and we made it to the post season which was good," Clements said. "I wish we could still be playing, but unfortunately we're done."

Clements finished the season with 42 receptions for over 800 yards and had nine touchdowns while also averaging 28.8 yards per kick return (including one for 88 yards and a touchdown) and 9.8 yards per punt return.

"I'm pretty versatile," Clements said. "They like to get me the ball in the slot and then let me do my thing.

"I pretty effective at running my routes and reading defenses and finding the soft spots in the zones. My quickness is probably my biggest asset. It helps me get off the line and this past summer we really hit the Jugs machine hard and that made my hands stronger and just made me more confident in catching the ball."

Clements has impressive physical stats as well. He runs a 4.55 forty, has a 34-inch vertical and he also puts up 225 pounds 10 times on the bench.

On the recruiting front, Clements has been hearing quite a bit from Arkansas State and from Northern Colorado.

"I'm not sure why some more schools aren't talking to me, but right now, those are the two that have been recruiting me pretty hard," Clements said. "I'm taking an official visit to Arkansas State this weekend and then Northern Colorado in early December, but that date hasn't been set yet."

Clements was a full-qualifier out of high school so he will be able to enroll at a four-year school in January.

We'll continue to follow Clements' progress over the next couple weeks and update things as they change.
