Tyler Grace Junior Kade Clayton Receives First Offer
Tyler Grace junior Kade Clayton had a breakout season in 2012. The playmaking athlete received his first offer during a Sunday junior day event.
Clayton received an offer from Texas State during Sunday’s junior day in San Marcos. The event was the second of the weekend that Clayton attended. He also went to SMU on Saturday and was invited to LSU’s Saturday junior day.
Clayton caught the eye of college programs in the fall, when the 6-foot-1, 185-pounder made a midseason switch from receiver to tailback and excelled at both spots.
Clayton carried the ball 119 times for 1,511 yards and 26 touchdowns and snagged 26 passes for 502 yards and six touchdowns. He accounted for 2,013 yards from scrimmage and 32 offensive touchdowns, averaging 13.9 yards per touch.
Defensively, Clayton had 69 tackles, five for loss, and two forced fumbles playing in the secondary. He averaged 39.9 yards per return on nine kickoff returns and scored twice on special teams, giving him 34 total touchdowns.
Clayton finished fifth in East Texas in scoring with 204 points. His 1,511 rushing yards were 12th in the region. ETSN.fm named Clayton to the Football Super Team Second Team at running back.
Clayton told ETSN.fm contributor Justin Wells that he won’t make any more junior day visits until Duke’s spring game in April.
