The positive effects that C.J. Spiller has had on recruiting have certainly been evident in the amount of top running backs Clemson has been receiving interest from. Clemson already has two of the country’s best backs, Marlin Lane and Mike Bellamy, committed to the 2011 class and are garnering interest from another top back Quan Bray.
“The Atmophere is real nice up there, and I really like the coaching staff. If I go to Clemson I will be able to play running back and not defensive back like a few schools have suggested,” said Bray.
The 5’11” 178 lbs. standout plays option quarterback for his high school team and is being recruited as an athlete by many schools. He says he is still considering a many schools: “Clemson, Georgia, Alabama, Florida, Auburn, and Miami.”
What does a school like Clemson need to do to see a commitment from Quan?
“Show me that I am going to get what they have been telling me; be honest with me,” replied Bray.
Two other factors the speedy back from Lagrange, Georgia says are very important to him is getting a good education, and going to a school that will help put him into the NFL.
Quan says he plans on coming up to Clemson for a couple games and will not make decision on a school until he is ready. For now he is focusing on his high school practices and getting better.
