, the quarterback prospect who is at the top of new offensive coordinator Chad Morris’ wish list. Kelly will be on campus Tuesday for a visit, and will work out in the Wednesday morning session.

Kelly is expected to announce his college choice on Thursday.

Another player to watch out for – and one who the Clemson coaches will almost certainly be paying attention to – is running back Zac Brooks Zac Brooks

of Jonesboro, Arkansas. The 6-2, 180-pound speedster (runs a 4.4 40-yard dash) will work out all three days.

Brooks has a dozen offers already, including offers from Arkansas, Clemson, Auburn, Notre Dame, Ole Miss, UNC, Pitt and Stanford, after rushing for nearly 1,400 yards and 15 touchdowns as a junior.

Plenty of 2013 talent will be on hand as well, and TigerNet will be at the camp to let you know which of these rising juniors stand out.

The Tigers will most likely only sign 17 or 18 players in the 2012 class [there are only 14 seniors], and with seven commitments already on board, the coaching staff will be taking a final look at the 2012 prospects while using the final three days as a spring board into offers for the 2013 class.
