Drew Clottey leaves early for the NFL Draft

One of the stars on Tatsuya Kaname's Mitakihara Magi football team going to be declaring for the NFL Draft. The player in question: Drew Clottey, a cornerback from Hamilton, Ont. who decided to forgo his junior year despite being offered a chance to win the Bednarik and earn a guaranteed national championship.

"I've made my decision," Clottey said in a face-to-face meeting with Coach Kaname, defensive coordinator Karuta Kanda and secondary coach Darren Kujou. "I'm gonna go pro."

Clottey, the 2062 Jim Thorpe Award winner, had 217 tackles, 12 interceptions, 8.0 sacks, 17 pass deflections and 25 TFL in a storied three years at Mitakihara. He was named a first team All-American in 2062 and 2063. On the flip side, the Magi were able to persuade right outside linebacker Zach N'Diaye, kicker Antonio Magsaysay and punter Angel Locsin to finish their careers as members of the Madoka Magi.

"Well, we weren't going to keep everybody but we tried to offer Drew a chance to win another national title and a Bednarik," Coach Kaname at a press conference. "We really stress the need to have a education, not just use it as a proving ground to turn pro early. He would have finished his career on top as a senior but now that he's declared for the Draft, he's going to have to find some way to finish his degree if it doesn't pan out.

"Drew may have to finish his education on loans, and if you don't have the money to pay off the loans, you're gonna be in trouble. So I'm sure Drew understands this and makes the right decisions as a professional. We thank him for his time as a member of the Magi and wish him well in the NFL."

In other news, Ryuta Kasugano has been named the new offensive coordinator at Mitakihara, after Darrell Hashida left for a head coaching position at Rutgers. A former five-time All-Pro in the NFL, Takumu Mayuzumi has been named the new wide receivers coach at Madoka.
