Chad Clay, a 3-star cornerback out of Peachtree Ridge, told the AJC on Thursday that he’s 90-percent committed to UGA.
The other 10, though, is committed to exploring other options.
The 6-foot, 180-pound corner, who was sidelined for Peachtree Ridge’s scrimmage due to an MCL sprain, told the AJC that some of his top schools have been recruiting him heavily as of late, most notably Oklahoma.
“Oklahoma is still coming real hard,” Clay said. “So, just in case anything happens with Georgia, that could be a possibility.”
Clay, the No. 32 cornerback in the country, says the OU coaching staff has indicated to him that they have a shortage of defensive backs, and that earning playing time as a freshman is a real possibility.
According to Clay, what better conference is there to play in than the Big-12?
“(Oklahoma) plays in the Big-12,” Clay said. “If you’re going to test how good of a defensive back you are, you’re going to go to the Big-12 because they throw it a lot out there.”
Clay told the AJC that he recently received an official offer from FSU, too, and he’s likely to give it some consideration.
“That’s a school that I’m looking to be in touch with because that’s another option as well,” Clay said. “That’s a great program.”
Clay tells the AJC that he does not have any visits planned at the moment.
