– along with several other top prospects.

Also slated to make the trip to Clemson are eight of Clemson’s 2013 signing class: Maverick Morris, OL, Douglas (GA) Coffee County; Mike Williams, WR, Santee (SC) Lake Marion; Cordrea Tankersley, DB, Aiken (SC) Silver Bluff; Wayne Gallman, RB, Loganville (GA) Grayson; Jayron Kearse, ATH, Fort Myers (FL) South; Adrian Baker, CB, Hollywood (FL) Chaminade Madonna; Dane Rogers, DE, Shelby (NC) Crest; and T.J. Green, WR, Sylacauga (AL).

I’ve texted several other prospects over the last few weeks and there are several other ACC and SEC schools that have spring games this weekend that several of Clemson’s prospects will be attending. In addition to the other spring games, prom season is in full effect. Add in the fact that it is an ACT test date, there is a Nike event in Atlanta and other prospects have baseball and track commitments, and you will see that the numbers are down over recent years.
