ATH Tysean Holloway (6-0 189) of Asheville has offers from North Carolina and Georgia Tech and is hearing from Clemson, Florida State, Illinois, Oregon, Tennessee, Stanford, Arkansas, Nebraska, Syracuse, Texas A&M, and Virginia. “Clemson talked to me a lot when they were recruiting (high school teammate) Jeoffrey Pagan,” said Holloway. “They told me I probably wouldn’t get an offer early, but I would get one later.” Holloway will join his team this Wednesday as they travel to Clemson to get a feel for a college campus. He will visit FSU on April 16th for their junior day and is planning a trip to Illinois. Holloway says North Carolina, FSU, Illinois, and Oregon are his top schools in no particular order. As a junior, he rushed for 1891 yards and 29 touchdowns. This season, he is expecting to play offense and defense. He did not name a leader.
DB Daron Blaylock (6-0 205) of Marietta, GA now has two offers. The first came from Louisville and the other from Kentucky. Blaylock and his twin brother Zack (6-0 185) are the sons of former Atlanta Hawks guard Mookie Blaylock. This weekend the two will take a trip to visit several schools. “We’re heading to Ole Miss on Saturday,” said Blaylock. “We’re also going to Miami and Central Florida next week. It’s our spring break.” The two have received interest from other schools including Clemson and USC. Clemson has shown more interest than the Gamecocks. “We will visit them over the summer,” he said. “We’ll probably try to get to a camp or something.” Blaylock says he and his brother will likely attend the same school and that they do not have a favorite.
WR Chris Black (5-11 175) of Jacksonville, FL will make the trip to Columbia Thursday with First Coast teammates Shaq Beverly and Reggie Northrup. Black is no stranger to the USC campus. “I’ve probably been there four or five times by now,” Black said. He visited Florida yesterday with the same two teammates. They will go to Florida State Saturday and Alabama next week. Black has offers from USC, Clemson, FSU, Florida, Alabama, Georgia, and Notre Dame among others. He has over 20 in all. “I don’t really talk to them all,” he said. “I am really just focusing on three or four schools right now.” He says those schools are USC, Alabama, FSU, and Florida. Black says he does not have a leader.
Former USC guard Ramon Galloway is considering Temple, LaSalle, Central Florida and South Florida for his new school. Galloway is scheduled to visit Temple next weekend. Temple appears to be the favorite for Galloway who grew up in Philadelphia before moving to Florida. But, one of the two Florida schools on his list could end up with the shooting guard because he has a young child living back in Palm Beach Gardens, FL. Galloway would have to sit out next season as a transfer and would have two seasons of eligibility to play.
Clemson has asked 6-2 PG Rod Hall of Augusta to remain patient while his situation is sorted out, and Hall remains so. Hall said he talked Tuesday night with recruiter Earl Grant. “He said he knows I’m going to get a scholarship but he wants to make sure I will be admitted to school,” Hall said. Hall reiterated he would commit to Clemson with an offer. He is scheduled for an official visit there April 15th. Hall has offers from Tennessee State, Nebraska, NC State and Coastal Carolina. He plans to visit Tennessee State after his Clemson visit if he hasn’t committed to the Tigers. Hall expects to hear back from Clemson next week.
