Visits w/ player comments:

Clemson 1/10


South Carolina 1/17 - "To tell you the truth I really like the way Charlie

wanted to take a visit to see where things stand at."

Maryland  1/24 - "I want to visit so I can learn more about Maryland." 


Georgia 1/31 -"Georgia is known for football.  They are on the rise and
they are on top in the SEC.  Their coach is very straight forward."
