Two of Clemson’s most prized commitments, WR Deon Cain and RB Ray Ray McCloud of Tampa, made official visits to Auburn over the weekend. Gus Malzahn and staff did an excellent job keeping these two invisible while on campus. None of the Auburn recruiting websites reported on their visits, until after they were done. Feel free to draw your own conclusion on that.
Clemson coach Dabo Swinney has a stated policy prohibiting his commitments from visiting elsewhere or risk losing their offer. However, there’s been no indication he’s enforced that with these two players.
Also interesting is the fact that McCloud and his family have consistently denied any plans for taking official visits to other schools.
This could have been noting more than a look-see visit for the two, a courtesy to recruit Rhett Lashlee who visited them last week in Tampa and set up the visit. Or, perhaps the two are seriously interested in Gus Malzahn’s offense and want to consider being a part of it.
At the least, this gives Clemson fans some anxiety for the next couple of days after an extended period of peace in their recruiting class.
