LB Jalen Stevens of Goose Creek is hitting the road this week for an unofficial visit to Connecticut. Stevens is also looking at visits to Clemson, Georgia, Florida, North Carolina and Central Florida in July. He has camped at Tennessee, North Carolina, Georgia and Florida. Stevens has offers from North Carolina, Arizona State, Connecticut and Southern Miss. Clemson is also showing interest. “They don’t know what position I would play,” Stevens say. “The defensive end coach is real interested in me. He wants me to put on 30-40 pounds and play like Andre Branch. I think they are close to offering. They want me to come up and work out and see my pass rush.” Stevens said all four of the offering schools are recruiting him hard. He does not have a favorite. Stevens said he will play in the Semper Fidelis All American Game after the season.
DE Jordan Sherit (6-4 245) of Tampa has 35 offers that include Clemson, USC, Miami, Florida, Auburn, Georgia Tech, Oklahoma, Ohio State, Notre Dame, Vanderbilt, Oregon, Mississippi State, Stanford, NC State, Maryland and South Florida. With the recent commitments at Clemson, Sherit has a growing interest in the Tigers. “They have really come on strong of late,” Sherit said. “They’ve been getting commitments from some of the best linemen in the country. To be a part of the best defensive line class this year is definitely appealing. I don’t know how many they plan to take in this class, but it would be great.” G.A. Mangus was one of the first coaches he met in the recruiting process but the Gamecocks have not contacted Sherit recently. He has visited Vandy, Florida and South Florida this summer and hopes to see Clemson in July. “A group of guys from the Tampa area are going to visit some schools together and they mentioned Clemson,” he said. “It would be really cool if I got to go there. We’re just going to get out and see some places but I’m not really sure where we’re going yet.” As a junior he totaled 110 tackles, 14 sacks and five forced fumbles. He also caught five touchdown passes as a tight end. Stanford offered him at the tight end position with Maryland and NC State offering him on both sides of the ball. He does not have any favorites.
WR Dejon Funderburk (6-0 175) of Pensacola, FL already has offers from Clemson, Alabama, Kentucky, Missouri, Virginia, South Florida, Memphis, South Alabama, Tennessee State and Troy adding USC recently. He has 19 in all. Though the Gamecocks have offered, the Tigers continue to show more interest. “They are recruiting me really hard,” Funderburk said. He is hearing from Auburn, Miami and Florida State with Auburn showing more and more interest in the receiver. “I think they might offer me,” Funderburk added. He has already camped at South Alabama this summer with upcoming trips to Clemson, USC and Auburn scheduled over the next few weeks. Auburn is first on June 29th. Clemson is in July, with USC on July 13th. He has not narrowed his list but has a lot of interest in the Tigers and Gamecocks. “I like them both a lot,” said Funderburk. “Clemson will have older receivers when I get there so I could fit in easily. South Carolina has a great coaching staff and they seem like a family.” He will narrow his list of seven before the season and would like to take all five official visits. He does not have any favorites.
RB Marquez Grayson of Lexington, NC will visit NC State Saturday. He has been to Tennessee and Wake Forest this spring and summer. Clemson, USC and Virginia Tech have been his top three.
