Running back Roman Clay from Lancaster (Pa.) Catholic enjoyed a fantastic season on the field this fall, as he led his team to a state championship. He also had the chance to take a few visits and hopes to hit the road once again in the coming months to gather some more information on a couple of schools.
"Recruiting is going pretty well," said Clay, who is 5-foot-11 and 200-pounds. "I'm starting to hear from places like Maryland, Rutgers, Oregon and Miami."
Two of these schools received multiple visits during the fall.

"I went to Maryland twice and Rutgers twice," said Clay. "I got some good vibes from Maryland."
Clay shared a few more thoughts about Maryland and his experiences there.
"I liked the campus and the facilities a lot, but it was more that the coaches were interested in how their players are doing and how they treat them," said Clay.
Clay may make return visits to both school in the near future.
"Rutgers and Maryland invited me to their junior days," said Clay. "Miami and Oregon are a little harder to try and get a feel for since their much farther away."
Going on these visits, Clay knows what he will be looking for.
"I want to see a lot more of the campus life and how their academic program is compared in the nation," said Clay, who attended summer camps at both Rutgers and Pittsburgh earlier this year.
On the field this fall, Clay was a huge part of his teams championship season.
"Everything went great this season," said Clay. "I ended it with 1,899 yards, 32 touchdowns and a 10.3 yard average. We just won our state championship game this past weekend. I improved my speed, strength, and my vision and awareness of the field has greatly improved."
