In less than 24 hours one of the Northern California's best linebackers will make his college choice. He has narrowed his list down to two schools. The player in question is three-star Michael Clay (5-11, 205, 4.5) from San Jose (Calif.) Bellarmine Prep.
One of his finalists is Oregon - the college that Clay had visited this past weekend.
"My trip to Oregon was a fun experience," Clay said. "I liked my visit a lot.
"The facilities and the business school are great. All of the buildings are being renovated to make them look like they did when the school first opened.
"The new academic building is about a half mile away from the track. I liked everything about my visit although I didn't commit."
However, it shouldn't be too much longer until Clay makes his final decision.
"I am making my college decision Tuesday morning," Clay said. "It is down to Oregon and Colorado."
Clay visited Colorado back in November.
"I liked Colorado's campus and the coaches are really cool," he said. "Colorado has a different environment than California.
"Oregon is recruiting me as a Sam backer that can cover like a safety. Colorado is recruiting me as a Will. I have no preference which position I end up playing."
One of those two lucky schools will be getting the services of a player who earned County and League Defensive Player of the Year after accounting for 107 tackles, 10 passes defended and racked up four sacks.
Clay earned a spot on the Rivals.com California Preseason Top 100 team for the class of 2009 landing as the Golden State's No. 73 prospect at any position.
