Ranked No. 27 overall
Clay lacks protoypical size at 5-11, 160 pounds, but plays every bit the part of a 6-4, 230-pounder. He is aggressive, physical and mean with an exceptional stick. He was particularly good for the Cherries as they made a run to the NAL championship game, the perfect ending to a summer where he was consistently excellent.
Clay only knows how to play hard all the time. He was a Michigan second-team all-state selection this spring… at attack, which speaks volumes about his stickwork. He’s transferring to Midwest powerhouse Culver, and former Division I coach Jon Birsner expects him to have an immediate impact as a top cover guy for the Eagles.

Clay doesn’t miss off the ground. In fact, he’s got such a good handle that there’s a chance he’ll play plenty of attack for Forest Hills Central this spring. Seriously. Defensively, he has outstanding footwork and is a very tenacious defender. The youngest brother of four, two of which play Division I lacrosse (Jackson at High Point and Bryce at Michigan), he might be the best of ’em all.

A recent transfer to @Culver_Lacrosse, Clay is aggressive and has an insane handle. 2nd team All-State at attack (!) as a sophomore.https://t.co/ms22DEOXRO pic.twitter.com/uUjvo9sP70
