Many recruiting fans have undoubtedly heard of Pompano Beach (Fla.) Ely's Tyrone Moss, one of the finest running back recruits in the nation. However, Moss isn't the only attraction at Ely High School this year-- Linebacker/fullback Clint Session is also making a name for himself and has now received five scholarship offers.
"There were a lot of schools here," Clint Session said. "Probably every school in the nation came to my high school."
Clint estimated that he received at least 20 phone calls during the month of May and it was during the phone conversations that he received his first offers. Session was offered by Michigan State, Iowa, Purdue, UCF, and Rutgers.
Session, who is 6-foot, 226 pounds and runs a 4.5 second forty-yard dash, plays both inside linebacker and fullback at Ely. Last season on defense Clint Session recorded 71 solo tackles, 37 assisted tackles, 8 sacks, 27 tackles for loss, 2 fumble recoveries, one interception, and 5 passes broken up. Session said most schools are recruiting him to play linebacker but one team likes his potential at fullback.
"UCF wants me to come in as a fullback but the others like me at linebacker," Session said. He does prefer one position over the other. "I want to play linebacker in college," he said.
Any favorite schools?
"I like Michigan State, NC State, Miami, Kansas State, Rutgers, Colorado State, and Purdue," Session said. "I don't mind going out-of-state. I just want to look at the depth chart and see if I'm going to maybe play early. I'll look at the athletic program and the academics program and see if they have my major or not."
Ely capped off their spring practice with a jamboree against Hollywood Hills High School.
"I had a couple good hits in the game," Session said. "We won, 35-0."
Session, who says he grew up a Miami fan, plans to attend the Bishop & Dulligan camp and maybe a couple school camps this summer. Clint also should have no problem qualifying with a 3.2 grade point average and a 19 on the ACT and a 910 on the SAT.
