Florida CB Travis Jay talks about his latest offer from Clemson
In the past month, Madison (Fla.) County High School cornerback Travis Jay has collected scholarship offers from Georgia, Tennessee, Miami, Auburn and Clemson.
The fast-rising 2019 prospect received his latest offer from Clemson on Wednesday.
“It was great man,” Jay said of the offer.
Clemson cornerbacks coach Mike Reed informed Jay of his newest college opportunity through his coach.
Jay (6-2, 180) cited Clemson’s winning culture as one of the factors that most appeals to him about the Tigers.
“They have a great football team and love winning,” he said.
Jay now expects to visit Clemson for the first time in a few weeks.
“I’m supposed to be coming (during) spring break some time,” he said.
Along with the aforementioned schools, Jay lists offers from Alabama, Florida, Florida State, Louisville, Maryland and Purdue.
Clemson has emerged as one of Jay’s favorites following the offer.
“They’re one of my top schools,” he said.
Jay said he doesn’t currently have a timeframe in mind for his college decision.
What is he looking for in a school?
“The school environment and how they welcome me in as home,” Jay said.
As a junior in 2017, Jay intercepted eight passes and returned two of the picks for touchdowns. He broke up four more passes and totaled 59 tackles.
The offensive line coach at Jay’s school, Bobby Hutchinson, is a former Clemson offensive lineman.
