Clemson target OG Jager Burton (6-4 270) of Lexington, KY announced Sunday night he will stay home and play for the Kentucky Wildcats. Along with Clemson, Burton also had Alabama, Ohio State and Oregon on his short list. Clemson offensive line coach Robbie Caldwell intensely recruited Burton. His close friend and former teammate is Clemson freshman offensive lineman Walker Parks. The two certainly discussed playing together, but in the end that wasn’t enough to lure Burton from the Wildcats. Clemson has three offensive linemen committed but no guards. They are still involved with tackles Tristan Leigh of Fairfax, VA, Nolan Rucci of Lititz, PA and Diego Pounds of Raleigh. The Tigers have not yet offered Pounds.
