OL Bryce Kennedy (6-3 285) of Southern Pines, NC received his first offer from USC earlier this year but did not commit. USC led for his services for several months. The Gamecocks remain high on his list, however Kennedy said, “I haven’t heard from them in a while so I don’t know what is going on. I still like them but I am not sure if I am going to visit.” Once his favorite, Kennedy is now leaning towards NC State and North Carolina. “I guess you could say they’re my top two,” he added. This past weekend, he visited NC State and will visit UNC this Saturday. He plans to set up his official visit with the Tar Heels while in Chapel Hill. He did not name a leader.
OL John McLaughlin (6-5 280) of Mauldin has named Wake Forest, East Carolina and Marshall has his top three in no order. He is not ruling out the possibility of looking at other schools but is showing the most interest in these three schools. “I’m looking for a place that feels the most like home,” McLaughlin said. “I want to feel comfortable with the O-line coach and obviously I’m looking for a good education.” McLaughlin was scheduled his first official visit in November and will take it at East Carolina. He is heading to Wake Forest in three weeks when Virginia Tech is in town. It will be his first game in Winston-Salem. As for Marshall, he has not scheduled a visit. McLaughlin does not have a favorite.
SC commitment OL Joe Harris (6-4 285) of Lithonia, GA is planning his official visit to USC for the Clemson game. Harris missed his trip to Columbia last weekend. “I was going to go to the Auburn game but something came up and I couldn’t make it,” Harris said. He made his decision to commit to USC back in July and has not changed his mind. “I’m going to USC,” he said. “I’m a Gamecock.” Harris has no plans to take any other visits.
DB Ronald Darby (5-11 175) of Oxen Hill, MD is committed to Notre Dame but is still considering taking other visits. Clemson is one school on that list. “I haven’t decided yet,” Darby said. “If I do take a visit, they would definitely be a school I would consider. I really liked the coaches there.” He is strong with his commitment to the Fighting Irish. “I don’t know when I’ll make up my mind about taking other visits,” he said. “When I decide, I’ll just go.” Darby has been nursing a groin injury and returns to action Friday night. Clemson and USC have offered. He does not believe he would visit Columbia.
DB Elijah White (5-9 180) of Chandler, AZ will take an unofficial visit to Clemson in November. It will be his first trip to the school. “I want to talk to the defensive backs coach and see what they do at the position,” White said. “And I want to see the campus. I’m still very interested in Clemson.” White has taken trips to Arkansas, Ole Miss, Arizona and Arizona State-all have offered. He begins his official visits in November and has scheduled trips to Nebraska, Arkansas and Ole Miss. “I don’t remember the exact dates,” he said. “They’re on my calendar at home.” If things go well in Tigertown, White would not rule out the possibility of a return trip on an official visit. “They’re rolling right now,” he said adding, “They’ve got a really good football team.” Through five games, he has 33 solo tackles, two sacks and an interception. He does not have a favorite nor a top five. Clemson has offered.
