If you’d rather listen to the soothing voice of Phil Kornblut than strain your eyes, here’s your chance!
QB Chad Kelly of Buffalo wrapped up his visit to Alabama earlier today and is on his way to Clemson where he will participate in camp on Wednesday. “Bama was great,” Kelly said in a text message. “I had a wonderful time. The coaches are so cool. Saban is an awesome coach.” Kelly has one of his uncles in tow and he wanted him to get a close up look at Clemson. Kelly visited earlier in the spring with another uncle. That previous visit put Clemson in a strong position with Kelly. “I’m looking to have the trip like last time and show my uncle, who is big in this process, the great time I had last time.” Kelly is set to announce his college decision Thursday at 5:00 PM.
OL Jevarious Leamon (6-6 290) of Woodruff visited Clemson yesterday with his parents. “I took my parents up there so they could see what it was like,” Leamon said. “We saw the campus and talked to coaches. We met with coach (Dabo) Swinney too.” Leamon camps at Clemson last week and plans to attend another school’s camp but is undecided. “I’m going to visit Carolina soon but I’m not sure when,” he added. Leamon has offers from Clemson, USC, Auburn, Tennessee, East Carolina, Vanderbilt and Marshall. He may wait until signing day before making a decision but could change his mind. He did not name a favorite.
USC’s top quarterback target, Brendan Nosovitch of Allentown, PA, will be in Columbia Thursday for USC’s first major camp of the summer. “I am going to work out, “Nosovitch said. “Not so much to show them what I can do but I want to see how they coach.” Nosovitch talked with Gamecock quarterbacks coach and his recruiter GA Mangus a couple of days ago. The two have developed a strong relationship and Mangus has let Nosovitch know where he fits on their board at quarterback. “I’m the guy they want first and foremost,” he said. “They’ve been recruiting me pretty hard and I’m liking South Carolina more and more.” This will be his second visit to USC. He made an unofficial visit in April. Developments at two other offering schools have made Nosovitch’s decision a little easier. He’s aware that Chad Kelly is on the verge of committing to Clemson, so that has cooled his interest in the Tigers. And Virginia just took a quarterback commitment. “I’m not sure what that means for me right now,” he said. “They are going to let me know where I stand and everything.” Georgia Tech is another school Nosovitch has been offered by and he said he might visit Atlanta while he’s in the South. As for when a decision might come, Nosovitch said it would happen before his season, maybe the end of this month or in July.
WR D’Vario Montgomery (6-2 205) of Winter Park, FL has begun to narrow his list but is not ready to divulge the schools. “I haven’t made anything official or gone public with it,” Montgomery said. “I’m just starting to eliminate schools.” He did say USC remains on his list. “I’ve talked to several of their coaches and everyone one of them makes me feel so welcome,” he said. “I haven’t visited them yet but I feel welcome there,” he reiterated. He mentioned the facilities as something that interests him as well. Montgomery has not taken any visits nor scheduled any but does hope to take some trips this summer. “I’d like to visit South Carolina, Michigan State and Oregon but I don’t really know yet,” he said. Some of his offers include USC, Florida, Miami, Florida State, Notre Dame, LSU, Georgia, Ohio, Alabama and Tennessee among several others. He does not have a favorite.
DB Tajarvis Fuller (6-1 189) of Fort Meyers, FL has added several offers bringing his total to over 20. He has added Ole Miss, Vanderbilt, Florida Atlantic, Florida International, UAB, Middle Tennessee, Appalachian State and South Alabama to Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana, Western Kentucky, Maryland and Georgia Tech among others. Clemson continues to show interest. “They came through to watch me and they said they really liked me,” Fuller said. “They want to evaluate me more at camp.” He does have an interest in the Tigers. Fuller plans to attend a camp in the Upstate next month. He is currently northbound with several teammates. “We’re going to visit Illinois, Indiana and Wisconsin,” he said. “We’re going to see a bunch of the schools up north.” Fuller named Illinois, Florida, Central Florida and Iowa State as his top schools in that order.
CB Chris Bivins (5-11 170) of Gainesville, FL attended a camp at Florida yesterday and feels very good about an eventual offer. “(They didn’t offer) but I am very confident sooner or later they will,” Bivins said in a text. “South Carolina is still heavily in the running for my signature,” he added. Bivins was told by the Gator coaching staff that they do like him but may not have a scholarship to offer. “They really, really like me but it’s a numbers game,” he said. “They really like my ability.” Bivins also has offers from South Florida, Utah, Temple, Marshall, Florida International and Memphis. He does not have a favorite.
Clemson is showing interest in 6-1 Madison Jones of Raleigh, NC. The Tigers have not yet offered. Jones has offers from Richmond, Tulsa, Drake, Marshall and Georgia Southern. Miami, Georgia Tech, Georgetown and Marquette are also showing interest.
