Clemson takes another one off their commitment list

Elijah Daniel

TigerIllustrated.com reported Monday afternoon Clemson has pulled its offer from committed DE Elijah Daniel of Avon, IN. Daniel committed to the Tigers in June but has taken official visits to other schools this fall, and was planning for others. He has not visited Clemson since committing and had not set an official visit with the Tigers. But earlier this month Daniel said he was firm with Clemson and had not seen anything that would turn him away. He is the third commitment to come off the Clemson 2013 class in the past two weeks.

USC commitment DB Brendan Langley of Marietta, GA was back in Athens Saturday to watch Georgia’s game against Georgia Southern. It’s the fourth unofficial visit he’s made this season to see the Bulldogs play. Langley is one of USC’s highest rated prospects in the 2013 class but Georgia has made a big push for him over the past two months for football and basketball. He has met with football coach Mark Richt and basketball coach Mark Fox. Langley’s only visit to USC was for the Georgia game. He has also talked with Gamecock basketball coach Frank Martin about playing for him as well. Langley also has visited Tennessee this season. Langley has refrained from discussing his recruiting in depth until his season is over, but when asked he has said he’s still firm with the Gamecocks. Langley will be an early enrollee.

WR Juwaan Williams of Tucker, GA will make an unofficial visit to Florida State this Saturday for the Florida game. Williams has taken official visits to Notre Dame and Oregon and will take an official visit to Vanderbilt in January. At one point Clemson was on him and he planned to take an official visit with the Tigers, but Williams says things have cooled with Clemson and he’s not sure about a visit there. He said he would be interested in visiting Clemson if his recruiter, Marion Hobby, got back in touch with him. Right now he feels Notre Dame and Oregon are recruiting him the strongest and he talks to them weekly. Williams does not have a favorite.

Junior WR Demarre Kitt of Tyrone, GA made an unofficial visit to Clemson Saturday and saw the Tiger offense have its biggest day of the season in the win over NC State. Kitt once was committed to Georgia but broke that off last month. He’s been looking hard at Clemson and Southern Cal along with the Bulldogs. He and his parents visited Southern Cal earlier in the month. Kitt plans to return to Clemson for this weekend’s game with USC.

Junior OL Donnell Stanley of Latta made his first trip to Clemson this season Saturday with his uncle and liked what he saw. “I’ve been there before but it was my first time this year,” Stanley said. “I love the atmosphere.” Stanley and his uncle made the trip in one day but he did get a chance to speak with offensive line coach Robbie Caldwell. “We went to the game and then we came home,” he said. “I did talk to coach Caldwell and he just told me how much they want me to come there. The game was good and they scored a lot of points. It was so loud there.” This upcoming weekend Stanley heads to Alabama for the Auburn game. He did not name any favorites but says Clemson and USC continue to be strong contenders for his services.

DE Ebenezer Ogundeko of Brooklyn make an official visit to Florida over the weekend and he’s now the Gators’ to lose. “It was great, I had a lot of fun,” Ogundeko said. “I bonded with the coaches and players. The players were cool and the campus was great.” This weekend Ogundeko will make an official visit to Clemson. He also has been to Arizona State and is looking at Ole Miss and Syracuse for possible visits. But it’s Florida out front for now. “It’s a pretty wide lead,” he said. Ogundeko narrowed his list to five from over 30 offers.
