Two-star running back Roman Clay has had an interesting recruiting process so far. After he was close to making a decision at one point, Clay opened everything back up and decided to take his time. That allowed him to take a visit to Penn State yesterday, which continues to show increased interest.
"The visit was awesome man," said Clay, who is 5-foot-10 and 210 pounds. "I had a great time."
Clay mentioned that he was most impressed with the game atmosphere and the fans he encountered while at the game. The visit also allowed him to gain further information on the Penn State program, even though most of it did not come from the coaching staff.
"The coaches were all getting ready for the game, plus I had to leave early so I was just with Adam Breneman and Christian Hackenberg the whole time," said Clay, who was asked about this interaction. "From what I'm hearing, that's the place to be at."
While he may not have had the opportunity to spend too much time with the coaching staff yesterday, his overall communication with the staff has remained consistent.
"Coach London gives me a call every week to check in," said Clay. "It's possibly that they will offer, but he just wants to see how the season plays out first."
Clay has no further visits planned at this time, but does believe that Kent State and Delaware are the two schools who continue to recruit him the hardest.
While he deals with his recruiting process, he has also been busy putting together yet another impressive season on the field.
"The season is moving so fast," he said. "It feels like yesterday we had our first game. I think I've been playing well so far, but I still have some stuff to work on so that we can keep laying when we get to the playoffs."
In his last game on Friday night, Clay rushed for over 300 yards and four touchdowns during a 49-0 victory.
