Are the Georgia Bulldogs about to seize a four star son of a Ramblin’ Wreck? Is turning a Tech family member away from the dark side part of plot to recapture the galaxy?

Or is a sleeper terrorist being planted in a rival’s football program. (Some believe it’s been done before. You remember Reggie Ball, right?)

Defensive back recruit of Peachtree Ridge High, Chad Clay (6’ 180) is the son of Willie Clay, the Tech all time interception leader. Chad Clay has Georgia, Ohio State and Florida as his co-leaders. Clay is ranked as the number 22 player in Georgia according the Composite rankings.

“I’ve already sat down and discussed this with my family,” Chad Clay told Michael Carvell of the “The time is right to make a decision.

Chad Clay’s Twitter page is littered with Georgia football retweets. If TheReal_Chad4 is faking it, he’s doing a good job.

Georgia took the lead for Clay after a February visit. Ohio State has made a push, but Sanjay Kirpalani of says Clay “has been a fixture on the UGA campus” recently.

“When I think about it, in the long run, I’d love to stay at home and play with some of my good friends and people I’ve grown up with since I’ve been playing football,” Kirpalani says Clay told Bleacher Report in February. “To stay at home and play college football and win, that would be a great thing.”

This could be a two-horse race between Ohio State and Georgia, but not likely. It appears Mark Richt and Georgia are going to mess up a lot of Thanksgivings in more ways than one.
