Eduardo Clements will be one of the most sought after running back prospects next season in the Class of 2010. Clements, 5-10 and 185 pounds, is from Miami (Fla.) Booker T. Washington High School.
"So far I have 15 scholarship offers," Clements said. "Florida State, Miami, USF, UCF, Rutgers, Boston College, West Virginia, Oregon, Cal, Florida International, Florida Atlantic and Iowa have all offered me. Miami was the first one and Rutgers offered today.
"As of right now I have a top school. It's FSU. I have just always been a Seminole fan growing up. That was my dream school. When I first got that offer I was very excited. Now everyone is showing me love so I want to keep my options open."
One team recruiting Clements hard and heavy is the home town Hurricanes.
"I like Miami and I want to put them up there right with Florida State. The only reason why they are not is because they have been recruiting too many running backs. I want to go to a place where I can get a chance to play early. I am not asking for a starring role but I would just like to contribute."
Clements has rushed the ball 85 times for 615 yards and 10 touchdowns. He's a dynamic back that can beat you a number of ways.
"I can catch and run so I am versatile. I am certainly not one dimensional. I would say that I am more of a finesse back. I have good speed and quickness. I am elusive too. "
BTW is 6-2 on the season. They face Miami (Fla.) Jackson this weekend before closing out the regular season with Miami (Fla.) Southridge.
He attended the Florida State/Miami game last month.
