Clemson and Virginia Tech are the top two with DB Kendall Fuller of Olney, MD according to his coaching staff. The Good Counsel program revealed on its Twitter account Monday morning that the Tigers and Hokies are at the top with Fuller who is regarded by some as the top cornerback prospect in the country. Michigan and Tennessee are next on his list. Fuller attended Clemson’s junior day in March and has been strong on the Tigers ever since. One of his teammates, LB Dorian O’Daniel, has already committed to the Tigers. Fuller’s brother plays at Virginia Tech and that is one of the strong draws for the Hokies.
DE Dane Rogers of Shelby, NC holds a Clemson offer and the Tigers are making it clear they want him in the program. “I’ve talked to Coach Hobby and he and Coach Brooks have been by,” Rogers said. “Coach Hobby wants me to be a part of their team. I’ve also talked to Coach Swinney and he said I have the speed and quickness they need for the edge. I’ve been talking the most to Coach Hobby and Coach Brooks.” Rogers, whose cousin is Clemson recruit Carlos Watkins, went to two games there last season and will visit again this summer. But while Clemson is strong with him, Rogers doesn’t want to identify an outright favorite right now. “I’m not saying a favorite because I really haven’t been anywhere,” Rogers said. He also has offers from NC State, Tennessee, North Carolina and Rutgers. LSU, Maryland and Florida also are showing interest and he plans to get to each this summer.
B Ryan Green of St. Petersburg, FL showed Friday night in his spring game why he is so coveted. On six carries, he rushed for 183 yards and 2 touchdowns. He also had an interception on defense. Green is over 30 offers including USC and Clemson. He has exams coming up and after those he will begin to narrow his list. USC recruiter GA Mangus and Clemson recruiter Tony Elliott have been by to check on Green. “Both are very interested and he likes both,” said Green’s father Vader Green. “There’s no clear front runner. He’ll make his decision whenever he feels comfortable with where he can live when he’s not playing football.” Mr. Green said from his observations Clemson, Florida State, Florida, Notre Dame, Ole Miss, Alabama and LSU have made the strongest pitches for his son. Ryan Green was not able to visit any schools during the spring because of basketball and track. He will try to visit Clemson and USC this summer.
DL Kelsey Griffin of Hoschton, GA wanted to wait for spring practice to end and is now ready to begin the process of narrowing his list to five. “It’s time,” he said. “I want to give some schools a little more time but I am ready to talk with my parents and start looking at the schools that are best for me.” Griffin is high on USC but did not say if they are on his list. His offers include USC, Tennessee, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Maryland, Auburn, Ole Miss, North Carolina, Florida and Mississippi State. Thus far he has visited USC, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Alabama, Auburn and Mississippi State. “Just because I narrow my list to five doesn’t mean I’ll stop visiting other schools,” Griffin said. “I’ll still look outside of those five schools because I do want to visit as many schools as I can.” Griffin did not name any leaders and does not have a date specified to announce his top five.
DB Justin Williams of Port St Lucie, FL met with Grady Brown of USC late last week and has the Gamecocks high on his list. “I would say that South Carolina and UMass are my two favorites,” Williams said. “Coach Brown told me he is excited about getting me on campus. He told me he thinks I have a lot of talent and he could work with me to get the most out of it.” Williams was pleased with what Brown had to say. “It made me feel good to know my hard work is paying off,” he said. “I know South Carolina has a really good DB coach and I read that they put a lot of DBs into the NFL.” Williams has offers from USC, Florida International, UMass, West Virginia, Michigan State, Purdue, Cincinnati and Middle Tennessee. He plans to visit UMass and FIU in June and would like to visit USC as well. Williams would like to make his decision in June. He did not name a leader.
DL Herbert Moore of Memphis committed to Ole Miss. Clemson was one of his offers.
7-1 Jordan Dickerson of Alexandria, VA spent the weekend in New York competing in a tournament. He will go to Dallas this coming weekend for another tournament, and then he will take an official visit to Providence on Monday according to his uncle Darrell Crawford who is assisting him with his recruiting. Crawford said the plan is to also schedule official visits with USC and Auburn though no timetable for that has been set. Crawford said many other schools have jumped in on Dickerson since he qualified including St. Johns, Arkansas, Dayton, DePaul and South Florida, but it’s USC, Providence and Auburn which have been showing the strongest interest the longest. Dickerson said last week he favors the Friars right now but his uncle said no decision will be made until the visits are taken.
