Joe Harris from Lithonia (Ga.) High School said a recent trip to Columbia, S.C., could certainly help the Gamecocks, especially when it came to wooing his mother.
"She liked it and she said it's somewhere she would like to see me go," said Harris, a four-star prospect who is rated the 14th best guard in the nation.
Harris, however, recently described Clemson as his dream school. With family in the state, it could get interesting to see the two battle it out along with Harris' other suitors.
He has been on several unofficial visits to Clemson. He is looking for academics, exposure for the NFL, tradition, and good education in a college. He has camped at Clemson, Auburn, and Georgia.
