Decision day has arrived for Cameron Clear.
The Central High standout, the top undecided football prospect in the Shelby-Metro area, will make his college choice known Tuesday at a 1 p.m. (Central) press conference at the school.
Clear had originally been scheduled to sign on Thursday, the day after Wednesday's national signing day. Clear's father, Michael, confirmed the change in plans via text message to The Commercial Appeal.
Clear spent his final official visit at the University of Memphis this past weekend. His other final choices are Duke, Tennessee and Alabama. In an interview with The Commercial Appeal last week, Michael Clear said Tigers coach Larry Porter had been making a good, late pitch in an effort to keep his son at home.
Cameron Clear has a good relationship with Duke coach David Cutcliffe and likes the educational opportunities the school presents. Tennessee and Alabama are both storied Southeastern Conference programs and offer a chance to play in front of packed houses each week.
The 6-6, 265-pound Clear is rated as the top prospect in the state by the Knoxville News Sentinel. Although he may eventually outgrow the position, his preference is to play tight end in college.
