RB Justin Taylor (5-11 210) of Millen, GA is coached by former USC RB, Stanley Pritchett. Pritchett says he would like to see more interest from USC and Clemson for his player. “He hasn’t heard from either school yet,” said Pritchett. “I want him to take a visit to USC.” According to Pritchett, Taylor has offers from Georgia Tech and Arkansas and is hearing from Florida. “We just got back from Florida and they really liked him,” he said. Taylor rushed for over 1500 yards and 10 touchdowns last season. “He is an old-time runner,” said Pritchett. “He runs out of the I-formation and isn’t afraid of running between the tackles.” He says Taylor will take some more junior day visits but does not think he will make it to USC or Clemson. “They haven’t invited him so I don’t think he will go,” he said. Taylor does not have any favorites.
OL Vadal Alexander (6-6 310) of Buford, GA has offers from Clemson, USC, Tennessee, Alabama, Auburn, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Florida, Florida State, Notre Dame, North Carolina, NC State, Ohio State, and Oregon among others. “He has got offers from just about everybody,” said his coach, Jess Simpson. As for junior days, Simpson is unsure of where he plans to visit. “To be honest with you buddy, I don’t know where he is going,” he said. “He’s been invited by a lot fo schools.” Simpson says Alexander is wide open in his recruitment and did not know his interest level with the Tigers or Gamecocks.
Shooting guard Devin Coleman (6-3 195) of the Philadelphia suburb of Wynnewood will make an official visit to Clemson February 26th, and he said Tuesday it’s possible he’ll commit to Brad Brownell that weekend. His parents will join him on the visit. “Clemson has been recruiting me since early January and there is a high level of interest,” Coleman said. ‘They tell me I could fit in well in their system. And their offense is like what we run in high school. I want to make my decision soon and Clemson is my favorite right now.” Coleman also holds offers from LaSalle, St. Joseph’s, Penn, Temple and Rice. Penn State and Rhode Island also are showing interest. Coleman is averaging 16 points, 8 rebounds and 3 assists per game this season. “I bring a lot of effort defensively,” he said. “I take pride in defense. And I’m a slasher to the basket but I can hit the outside shot.”
