Interest continues to be strong for Tarpon Springs senior OL Clay Paino, Spongers coach George Kotis said today.

And a lot of it is coming from the Ivy Leagues.

According to Kotis, both Brown and Dartmouth have saved Paino a slot. In the Ivy Leagues, schools don’t offer athletic scholarships, but this essentially is the equivalent of getting one.

The 6-foot-4, 275-pound Paino carries a 4.2 GPA.
