Recruiting News

Last week Kendall Kelly rated his visit to Clemson a "10", but he was at LSU this weekend and says "Its probably the best one I've been on. Just everything that went into it." When asked if LSU was in the lead, he said we're (CU, Bama, LSU) "all about medium now." He went on to say that he might visit Tenn. or Auburn next weekend. He plans to announce on signing day. LSU already has a large group of WRs in this class.

Tajh Boyd is planning to announce his decision tomorrow afternoon. Based on his father's comments, I'd say we currently have the best shot at landing him, but his dad did say that he doesnt know who Tajh will pick. He points out the family atmosphere at Clemson as positives, and the general sense (of many Clemson fans) of not knowing what will happen with the offense under Swinney and Napier as negatives. He spent nearly an hour on the phone with Dabo sunday, and Napier/Pearman are to be in VA today to meet him. Just cross your fingers.

OL J. Schofield reaffirmed his commitment to Tennessee this weekend, but hopefully Kirkpatrick will consider us for a visit this weekend. We still have a good shot with Tim Simon, see yesterday's blog for the link.

Napier was interviewd by The State here, and basically says the same things he said in his TI interview, but more focused on recruiting here.

Official visits for this weekend, as of Monday:
Blake Burgess-OL-6'4" 260-no star rating
Tyler Felt-OG-6'4" 252-no star rating, Shrine Bowl long-snapper
Darrell Smith-TE-2 stars, teammate of K. Kelly and Dre Kirkpatrick
Donny McElveen-QB-2 stars, Summerville QB

and a few kickers, none of which will get an offer, but I'm not covering kickers.

Kirkpatrick would be the best, but we wont know til mid-week.
