Third offer in five days for OT Rhodes

2/19/2012

Offensive tackle Clay Rhodes (Stilwell, Kan./Blue Valley) summed up his recent recruiting succes in one sentence.

“I’ve had a busy week,” a very excited and appreciative Rhodes said.

About this time last week, Rhodes was still trying to pick up his first offer. As he approached Sunday, he could say proudly that he had earned three offers in a five-day span. The latest came Saturday, as he picked up an offer from Tulsa during the school’s junior day.

“I’m really excited to pick up an offer from such a great school,” Rhodes said. “I had no idea. I’m truly blessed.”

The 6-foot-6, 260-pound tackle now has offers from Missouri, Tulsa and Kansas State. He also has interest from Kansas, Northwestern, Duke, Michigan and Kent State.
