It took some time, but finally BadgerBlitz.com can bring you video of Racine (Wis.) Park running back John Clay.
Aside from landing a quarterback or two in the Class of 2007- which is a top priority - the Wisconsin Badgers have tabbed the 6-foot-2, 222-pound Clay a must-have prospect. And why wouldn't the Badgers want this top in-state prospect who is a member of the Rivals.com pre-evaluation Rivals100 2007 ?
With some people comparing Clay to the legendary Jim Brown, he seems a perfect fit for the run-friendly Badgers.
Throughout the early portion of the recruiting year Clay has been hard to contact. The most recent site to speak to the running back is HuskerIllustrated.com , which released its conversation with Clay Tuesday.
In his conversation with the site, Clay talked a little bit about the Badgers.
"Wisconsin is probably recruiting me the hardest, but I'm not really leaning to staying in state," he said. "I don't have any favorites at this point, and I like all of the coaches recruiting me equally well."
Clay also updated his offer total which is now at seven with Tennessee and Minnesota jumping on board after the NIKE Training Camp at Ohio State. His other offers include UW, Illinois, Iowa, Nebraska and Ohio State.
"I want to be used both running and catching ball the ball out of backfield, but my main thing is my academics and the graduation rate at the schools," Clay told HuskerIllustrated of what he's looking for in a school. "I've been looking into that some. My parents have said that whatever I choose, they'll be right there beside me supporting me. I'm going to wait until after my football season to make my decision. I'll probably take three or four official visits before deciding where to go."
