OL Mark Harrell (6-5 270) of Charlotte has offers from USC, Clemson, Auburn, Notre Dame, North Carolina, Virginia, Virginia Tech, Vanderbilt, NC State, Georgia Tech, West Virginia, Michigan, East Carolina, Duke, Wake Forest and Stanford among others. He does not have any favorites but did name a list of schools of interest. “I am pretty wide open right now and am listening to all schools,” Harrell said. “I do have schools that I do have a high interest in.” Those schools are Clemson, USC, Notre Dame, North Carolina, Virginia and Auburn. He has visited USC and Clemson. “They’re both very similar in that they have good programs and good academics,” he said. “There are some differences too. Clemson is a rural campus and is centralized. South Carolina has a centralized campus with downtown like two seconds away.” Harrell is in the process of narrowing his list and hopes to make a decision before next season. He plans to take several visits over the summer. Harrell did not name a favorite.

ATH Marty Williams of Fox Creek continues to favor Clemson according to his coach Russ Schneider. “He’s been up there three times and he really like it,” Schneider. “But he wants to be sure. He hasn’t been anywhere else but Georgia and Clemson.” Clemson is recruiting him as a strong safety. Clemson, Arkansas, NC State, East Carolina and The Citadel have offered Williams and Schneider said Georgia Tech is close to offering as a quarterback. USC was in last week and wants him to come in for a half day this summer. The Gamecocks see him as a receiver. Notre Dame also checked him out last week and is close to offering. Florida, Minnesota and NC State are to be in on Wednesday. Schneider said Williams will visit Georgia Tech and USC in June. Williams is also interested in Miami.
