Among the recruits at Clemson Saturday was 2020 LB Devin Johnson of Paintsville, KY. He camped with the Tigers last summer and got a taste then of what Brent Venables looks for in his linebackers. “I loved the way he coached and his passion for the game. I am very interested in Clemson, they have a very family approach and they also have some great academic programs I am interested in. Out of all the places I have been, there facilities are second to none. The visit Saturday was great.” Johnson said he’s also hearing from Kentucky, Tennessee, Vanderbilt and Penn State. He will visit Tennessee November 4th and Vanderbilt November 11th. And his father knows Will Muschamp from his time at Eastern Kentucky and he might camp with the Gamecocks next summer.
TE Elijah McAllister of Rumson, NJ said he’s not heard from USC since his unofficial visit for the Kentucky game.

He recently took an unofficial visit to Boston College. He said Rutgers and Purdue are coming to scout him soon. In three games this season McAllister has 5 sacks and 9 tackles for loss.
