Two-star running back Roman Clay of Lancaster (Pa.) Lancaster Catholic turned in an impressive junior season, and now has begun to reap the benefits. The big back has reeled in a few offers already, and now is hoping for bigger things as he will attend several upcoming summer camps.
"I got three more offers, coaches are really starting to show a lot more interest and are dying for me to come to camp," said Clay, who is 5-foot-10 and 210-pounds. "Old Dominion, Delaware and Towson are my three new offers."
Clay added his three latest offers to his original offer form Massachusetts. He is also claiming that Temple, Pittsburgh and Boston College have all been showing him serious interest recently. Hoping to add to his offer total, Clay will make his way this summer to camps at Temple, Clemson, N.C. State, Maryland, West Virginia and Boston College.
"I'm trying to score an offer," said Clay. "They just wanna see me run around for a bit."
Clay hopes to make a final decision by the end of the summer, and is trying to find a few specific things in his future school.
"I'm looking for a good academic program, a place where I can play early and a school with an overall tradition of winning," said Clay, who was also asked if he had any current favorites. "Not yet. I'm still in the evaluation stage. I haven't broken any schools down yet."
After rushing for 1,899 yards and 32 touchdowns last fall, Clay has a few goals in mind for his senior season.
"Well I really want to hit 2,000 before I leave and I want to win the states again in AAA," said Clay.
