Here's the Bear Insider article on his commitment. He was ranked the 53rd best receiver by Rivals, according to Okanes (HT Berkelium). drub12 found this quote from ESPN.
“I had a great time on the visit and when they decided to offer me a scholarship, I basically committed almost on the spot. I told myself before the visit that if Cal offered and I was comfortable there, I would go ahead and jump on it and that’s what happened. I talked with Coach (Jeff) Tedford and he’s a real good guy. They have some big plans for me and I’m excited to be a Bear,” he said.
Clay caught 24 passes for 459 yards and four touchdowns while also rushing for 548 yards and six more scores this fall.
Clay is an under-the-radar prospect with a nice blend of speed, quickness and acceleration. He possesses below average size and bulk at this stage, but is a smooth, fluid player with the ability to stretch the field vertically. He plays in a conservative scheme where he does not get many…
Shadwhand said that Clay isn't a desperate back-up plan and could be part of our rotation soon enough.
Supposedly we were targeting him even before Harper’s decommit. His highlights don’t look bad at all. He’s not necessarily a immediate impact player, but if he can be developed/coached, etc., I’m sure he’ll be a fine contributer.
Welcome to Cal, Kaelin!
