DE Gerald Dixon (6-4 260) of South Pointe has made numerous unofficial visits to USC. “I’ve seen it all,” he said, but he will see even more the weekend of the Troy game when he makes his official visit along with his brother Gerald Dixon Jr. and close friend Roderick Byers, both of whom play for Northwestern. He does not have any other official visits scheduled. He still has Auburn, NC State and Wake Forest under consideration. Dixon, who does not claim a favorite, said he and his brother still want to attend the same school and they’ll make that call after the season. Both of their teams figure to go deep in the playoffs. The brothers plan to announce at the same time.
LB Tony Steward (6-2 220) of St. Augustine, FL will be in Tallahassee for the Clemson-Florida State game Saturday. His coach says that the two schools lead with Steward. “He likes both of the those schools a lot,” said Keith Cromwell. “He has a great relationship with Jeff Scott. He is one of his favorite coaches and one of the main reasons, but not the only reason, he likes Clemson so much.” Steward has scheduled all of his visits, according to Cromwell, with his first to UCLA on December 4th for the Southern Cal game. He will be at Florida in December (Cromwell was unsure of the exact date), Alabama on January 7th, FSU on January 21st, and Clemson will be his final stop on January 28th
LB Stephone Anthony (6-3 220) of Wadesboro, NC has taken unofficial visits to Virginia Tech, NC State and Florida. This Saturday he’ll see another of his favorites in action as he’ll go to North Carolina for the game with Virginia Tech. He’s deciding between Clemson and Georgia for an unofficial visit November 27th. Anthony talked with Clemson recruiters Dan Brooks and Kevin Steele Wednesday night. “They talked to me about different things like my teammates and Clemson football,” he said. Anthony is still working on dates for his official visits. He’ll have to work them in around the Shrine Bowl and the Under Armour Game. And because of that, he won’t make an announcement in Orlando. Clemson, Florida and Virginia Tech are definite for official visits. He’s undecided on the other two. And there is not leader right now. “It’s kind of evened out for me,” he said. “It was Florida but things have evened out and I’m going to take my time with it.”
DL Devonte Brown (6-4 260) of Fayetteville, NC will take an official visit to North Carolina this weekend and says he would like to go to either Clemson or Florida next weekend for another official visit. “We’re still scheduling visits so I’m not sure what I’ll do next weekend,” said Brown. He says Clemson and Florida are high on his list. Brown has not decided how many official visits he will take but did say he is also considering visits to USC and Tennessee as well. “I hear they’re doing good down at South Carolina,” he added. “I may try to visit them.” This season, Brown has 45 tackles and three sacks. He did not name a leader.
