Highly-touted Clay testing his way to eligibility

Category: Badgers — Patrick Stumpf @ 12:12 am

After the Wisconsin Badgers landed John Clay, one of the biggest recruits teams across the country were after, they figured that their backfield would be set with incumbent bruiser PJ Hill already on the roster. But after Clay failed to meet NCAA freshman eligibilty standards, the Badgers’ backfield after Hill suddenly became a glaring concern. Clay, from Racine Park High School, chose Wisconsin over Iowa and others, probably because of UW’s football reputation and its in-state location. Bret Bielema’s backfield was already slim after sophomore Lance Smith’s suspension, after violation of the school’s discipline policy. But recent developments [from the Racine Journal Times’ Gery Woelfel] suggest that Clay may suit up for the Badgers afterall. Clay has been attending English courses at Racine Horlick High and appears to be on track to pass those classes, making his eligible again to be ready for UW’s training camp.
