Recruiting News: Jan. 17 visits

Corey Addison - S (6', 187lbs) - 3-star. Soft verbal to SC, but Charlie Harbison is making in-roads with him. He is visiting Illinois and Vandy next, but has offers from Miami and LSU.

Kendall Kelly - WR (6'4", 210) - 4 star. Rated #26 at his position by Rivals. From Gadsden, AL. Heavily recruited by Swinney, Rumph, and Harbison. He's already visited Alabama and has alot of friends there, and will go to LSU next week. He says we're in his Top 3. Dre Kirkpatrick, who was a big Clemson target before committing to Alabama, is his teammate.

Tajh Boyd - QB (6'1, 208) - 4 star. Rated #4 at his position. Changes his mind like a woman. Has been committed to West Virginia and Tenn. before, and was leaning to Ohio State two weeks ago. Now, it appears that he's an Oregon lean. We're lucky to get a visit, but thats all you can hope for really, and we will be his last visit. He's being recruited by Napier and Pearman.

-Eric Fields has the early makings of an academic casualty, but says he will sign. If a student does not have the test score, he cannot make an official visit. Its unfortunate, since he is an Under-Armor All-American LB. Here's a quote about him from ESPN:

Clemson's current top prospect would fill a major need for the Tigers. Under Armour All-American linebacker Eric Fields (Warner Robins, Ga./Northside) is still a bit raw and needs to add bulk but can run and has a tall frame. Fields has good range and can be an asset in pass coverage as a linebacker. He will make plays but will need to develop his game; he is best on the move and could have difficulty playing in tight spaces. Fields has good tools, but at this point, he may be a slightly better athlete than football player. Still, his upside is nice for Tigers fans.

-Terrell Mitchell plans to visit on the 31st.
