Clemson commitment DE Elijah Daniel of Avon, IN has scheduled two more official visits but maintains he’s firmly committed to the Tigers. “I’m just seeing how things are compared to how things are at Clemson,” Daniel said. He’s visited Marshall officially and will visit Mississippi State this weekend. He will go to Ole Miss the following weekend, and Florida might get a visit as well. “I haven’t seen anything yet that would turn me way,” Daniel said. “I don’t they can say anything that would.” Daniel said those three schools are making a strong push. He has not been to Clemson this season but he talks with recruiter Brent Venables each week. He has not set his official visit date with Clemson. This season Daniel had 80 tackles and 12 sacks.
Junior OL Donnell Stanley of Latta will visit Clemson this weekend and then Alabama the next. He has not been to a Clemson game this season and is looking forward to the trip. “They were the first to offer me so that means something to me,” Stanley said. “I like talking to coach (Robbie) Caldwell and coach (Dabo) Swinney so hopefully I’ll get to talk to them again.” He will not return for the Clemson-USC showdown and, instead, will be at Alabama for their instate clash with Auburn. “I was down there this summer and they were my third offer,” he said. “I had a chance to talk to coach (Nick) Saban some and he told me he wanted me to come back for a visit. I’ve got some time now with Thanksgiving break coming up, so I’m going down there.” Since visiting USC for the Georgia game, Stanley returned to Columbia for the Tennessee contest and has also been to NC State. Speaking on the trip to Raleigh he said, “It was alright. they lost to Virginia but it was good other than that. I got a chance to see everything I needed to and they have a good agricultural program. I like that.” Stanley has no favorites and is showing interest in all of the previously mentioned schools. He plans to attend junior days at USC and Clemson next year.
Junior ATH CJ Fuller of Easley could visit Clemson the next two weekends. This weekend is still undecided but he says he will definitely be there for the Clemson-USC clash. The Tigers are his sole offer with interest from USC, North Carolina, Georgia Tech, Virginia Tech and Duke among others. He took his first visit to USC when Tennessee was in town. “I liked it a lot down there,” Fuller said. “I really like the atmosphere. They’re a good school and they’re competitive in a really strong conference.” As for Clemson he said, “I like the family atmosphere. It’s a brotherhood. Plus, it’s a good school and they graduate most of their athletes. I really like that.” Fuller has also visited North Carolina this season. “It’s pretty cool,” he said. “It is a little different-a little quieter-but it seemed nice.” With his season over, Fuller totaled 2,044 yards and 19 touchdowns. He did not name a favorite.
Junior DL Dexter Wideman of Saluda will spend his next two Saturday’s at Clemson. He’s going in this week for the NC State game and next week for the USC game. He has visited USC as well this season and has not visited an out of state school. Michigan also has offered him and he’s also getting interest from Alabama, LSU, Virginia Tech, NC State and North Carolina. Wideman grew up a USC fan but says that won’t factor into his decision. “They are both recruiting me about the same,” he said. Wideman said he talks to recruiters Charlie Harbison of Clemson and GA Mangus of USC on a regular basis. He plans to wait until National Signing Day of 2014 to announce a decision. Wideman has accepted an offer to play in the Under Armour Game after his senior season.
DL Ebenezer Ogundeko (6-4 238) of Brooklyn named Clemson, Ole Miss, Florida and Syracuse as his leaders in no order. Ogundeko will visit Clemson for the first time when they host USC. “I’m looking for a great environment when I go down there,” he said. “It’s a great school and they offer me a chance to play early. They’ve talked to me about how they want to use me and where I would play.” All four schools have offered Ogundeko who has over 30 in all. Alabama, Notre Dame, Oregon, Stanford, Texas A&M, Purdue and Arizona State are among his other offers. Ogundeko has already visited Syracuse, Notre Dame, Arizona State, Connecticut, Boston College and Florida before deciding to narrow his list to four. “I like Florida because it’s a great school and I have a chance to play early there in a rover-type position,” he said. “Ole Miss is another great school that has been recruiting me really hard. I like their new coaching staff.” Ogundeko did not name a time frame for a decision.
Junior WR Jamil Kamara of Virginia Beach has offers from Clemson, Vanderbilt, Virginia, Virginia Tech, NC State, North Carolina, Boston College, Marshall, Richmond, Hampton, James Madison, Illinois, Old Dominion, Miami and Toledo with interest from USC, Duke, Michigan, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Penn State and others. He does not have any favorite but did say, “I really want to sit down in the next couple of months and start narrowing my list. There is no doubt Clemson will make that list.” Kamara likes the coaches in the Upstate and would like to visit once again next summer. “It’s really far from my house but I want to do something like I did last year,” said Kamara. “I went down there for a camp and to talked to coaches and Sammy Watkins. I really liked it.” As for visits this season he said, “I still want to take two or three. I was supposed to go to UVA tonight for the North Carolina game but I couldn’t make it. I don’t know where I’m going to go, but I’m going to go somewhere.” Kamara did not name a leader.
