BJ Clay, who earned a football scholarship offer from Georgia State a couple of weeks ago, has committed to the Panthers.
Georgia State was the only offer for the 6-foot, 175-pounder from Dacula High School, who also had interest from UT-Chattanooga and Vanderbilt, among others. Clay will play wide receiver or defensive back in college.
Georgia State now has two commitments for its 2013 recruiting class.
Clay committed after making an unofficial visit to Georgia State with his family on Monday. “It just felt a good vibe about the place,” Clay told the AJC. “The coaches communicated well with my family and I, as well as the current players. It was just a good environment. And I also like that I will get the chance to play for a great coaching legend like Bill Curry.”
Clay is a well-rounded athlete. He also plays for Dacula’s basketball team. In track, he placed ninth in the 300 IM hurdles at the region meet. Clay said he has a 2.73 GPA and will study Business Marketing.
