“Lastly, I want to thank Coach Holiday and the rest of the coaches at Marshall for this great opportunity!”

Clay, a former three-star recruit for Georgia, was dismissed from the program after enrolling in 2016 following two arrests in a span of two months.

Clay then transferred to Butler Community College in Kansas.

Now, the defensive back will be eligible to play for the Thundering Herd beginning in 2017 with three years of eligibility remaining.
