Clemson Wednesday saw another top target come off the board with DB Jaden Davis of Ft. Lauderdale committing to Oklahoma. That decision was by no means a surprise. Next up for the Tigers will be a series of August decisions from players who have them on their short list. That includes LB Spencer Lytle of Bellflower, CA who is choosing between Clemson and Wisconsin.
“It’s just kind of a day by day thing seeing where my heart goes with everything,” Lytle said. “It’s back and forth for me.”
Lytle has set August 4th for his announcement. He will notify the coaches in advance and then put the news on Twitter. His primary recruiters, Clemson’s Brent Venables and Wisconsin’s Bobby April, are in regular contact down the stretch.
“He is excited about the potential of my commitment,” Lytle said of the message from Venables. “Clemson is accepting my timeline, but at the same time giving me all the reasons for me to become a Clemson Tiger. Coach Venables is also emphasizing how and why I am a great fit for their program along with the early enrollee opportunity ahead with the number of linebackers leaving over the next 2 years.”
Lytle currently is weighing the pros and cons of both programs. He sees plenty of pros for each.
“Coach Venables and the championship style program are really attractive to me,” Lytle said. “Wisconsin puts out a lot of backers as well as Clemson does. They’ve been close almost every year, too, and have won major bowl games. Both have great coaching staffs. They are both great fits for me.”
Lytle has visited each school twice and said he knows enough about the programs that he doesn’t need to take further visits prior to his decision.
