Georgia, North Carolina, N.C. State, Syracuse and Virginia Tech coaches have stopped by Jamestown High School (Williamsburg, VA) during the evaluation period for a closer look at 6-4, 205-pound WR Brandon Clear and his brother Byron, who is a 6-5, 205-pound prospect. Both Clear brothers impressed at the Army All-American Junior combine as well as the Scout.com combine in Durham and both feel the recruiting process is really just beginning to heat up.
A major reason why neither has an offer right now is because they have not been able to get out sophomore and/or junior year film. The Clears moved from Louisiana to Williamsburg last summer when their father, who is in the military, was transferred.
“We’re close to getting offers right now,” Brandon Clear said. “Last week, my dad sent out some tape and that’s what the coaches have been asking for. They always had the ‘if’ because they wanted to see my tapes. My coach has been sick so he hasn’t been able to put together any tapes, so my dad put together a highlight tape. A lot of schools have come by our school to talk about us.”
Brandon and Byron have spoken on the phone with only two programs so far but expect to hear from more as the month goes on. They have made several unofficial visits this spring, including trips to several SEC programs including Alabama and have also taken a visit to N.C. State.
“I’ve talked to Georgia and North Carolina State,” Brandon said. “I made an unofficial visit to North Carolina State a few months ago. I actually gave them the highlight tape yesterday. North Carolina and Syracuse said they will call later this month. Alabama’s been talking to us too. We got to meet coach Shula when we went there. Coach Cheese, who is the wide receivers coach, said he would stop by this month.”
Brandon, who is being recruited primarily as a wide receiver, played most of his junior season and played pretty well (racked up over 400 yards receiving). Byron, however, missed a large portion of his junior season. He and his father have requested sophomore season film from his previous school and, once they receive that, will send out his video to many programs.
