Brian Clay Jr., a cornerback from Will C. Wood High in Vacaville, Calif., told the Warrior Beat he has accepted a football scholarship offer from the Warriors.
“I love the family-oriented atmosphere there,” Clay said. “That’s important because it’s so far away from home.”
He added: “Hawaii is going to win a lot of games. It’s going in the right direction. I want to be a part of that.”
Clay said he is 6 feet 1, 185 pounds and can run 40 yards in 4.59 seconds. He will be turning down offers from Colorado State, San Diego State, UNLV, San Jose State, Utah State, Army and Air Force.
Clay, whose father is a sports agent, is not related to the world’s greatest athlete.
“I get asked that a lot,” he said.
