Two-star running back Roman Clay of Lancaster (Pa.) Catholic has started off his senior season with a bang, and along the way took his first official visit last weekend. He also continues to receive increased interest from a Big Ten program.
Clay, 5-foot-10 and 210 pounds, took his first official visit to Kent State last weekend.
"It was awesome," said Clay. "It's such a great a place to be and it's a great place to play football. I was impressed with how close their team was and how they were able to withstand adversity and pull out a win."
Up next is an official visit to Delaware this coming weekend.
"Basically I want to experience the same stuff I saw at Kent," said Clay. "I want to see a good atmosphere for football, I want to see if the players are really good with each other and a great coaching staff."
After that Clay will take an unofficial visit to Penn State for either the Ohio State or Wisconsin game. The Nittany Lions continue to stay in touch with Clay.
"I talk to Coach London every week and I know he made it down for a game," said Clay. "An offer is still possible and they're still recruiting me right now. I'm still high up on their board."
Besides these three schools, Clay continues to receive interest from Miami (Ohio), Pittsburgh, Massachusetts and Old Dominion.
Recruiting has definitely been keeping Clay busy but that has not slowed down his play on the field.
"My season is going well," he said. "I have 1,000 yards and 13 touchdowns in five games. I'm pretty excited. I've definitely improved my speed and also my vision and lateral movements."
