TE Jeb Blazevich of Charlotte was back at Clemson last Saturday for another unofficial visit. “It was a fun visit, a better game to watch,” he said. “Most of the games I’ve seen were blow outs. I like how they use the tight ends and I like the direction of the offense. The big question is will Coach Morris stay?” Blazevich also went to games at Georgia, Alabama, LSU and Ohio State this season. Recruiters from Clemson and Virginia have been in this week and Florida is coming next week. Notre Dame will come by in a couple of week, and Tennessee also has been in. Blazevich is working on his short list from around 25 offers and couldn’t confirm Clemson will be on it. “I don’t know how to answer that right now,” he said without elaborating. He plans to get his list down to six or seven and make a decision before this summer. USC also has offered but he hasn’t talked with recruiter Shawn Elliott in a while.
DB Adrian Baker of Hollywood, FL, a Florida State commitment since July, will make his first ever visit to Clemson December 7th. His grandmother and uncle will join him on his official visit. Clemson was in Baker’s final five when he committed to Florida State. And he said Tuesday night the departure of Seminole defensive coordinator Mark Stoops for Kentucky does affect his thinking. “It affects my thinking a lot,” he said. “Well see what happens. We had formed a relationship and how he’s gone and a new guy comes in. I already had a relationship with Coach Venables from the spring. I love Coach Venables. He’s passionate, a family man, the best guy recruiting me.” Clemson defensive coordinator Brent Venables and secondary coach Charlie Harbison visited Baker Tuesday. Florida State and Oklahoma will be in next week and Georgia also will visit him. Those will be his three other official visits. Baker is anxious to see what Clemson has to offer. “I wants to see what Clemson is about and the direction they are headed in,” he said. “I love the coaches and it’s really a family atmosphere.” This season Baker had 38 tackles and 4 interceptions. While at Baker’s school, the Clemson recruiters also checked in on junior DL Khari Clark and junior LB Richard Yeargin III.
ATH Mykal Moody of Conway took an unofficial visit to East Carolina over the weekend and loved his time there. “Oh man, it was awesome,” said Moody. “I got a chance to meet with the head coach and the players. I really liked it there.” The Pirates have not offered but Moody is confident that will change. “They just got involved with me so I just met them,” he admitted. “They called and wanted me to come up. I feel pretty good about an offer.” Moody also spoke with Miami earlier Tuesday. “I just got off the phone with them about 30 minutes ago,” he said. “They want me to come down for a visit. I have to wait for them to call me back because they need to check to see if they have space for me. I’m looking forward to going down there though.” Moody is also hearing from Marshall and Texas A&M but is unsure of where he stands with the two schools. He did not name a favorite but did say he would like to take an official visit to East Carolina should have offer be tendered.
DB Ryan Carter of Loganville, GA visited Clemson with teammate DB David Kamara recently. The pair took in the NC State game. “It was a good time,” Carter said. “We watched the game and got to talk to the coaches a little. We talked about our season and they told me they like my film.” Carter added that Clemson has remained in contact with him. The Tigers have yet to offer. His top two are East Carolina and Ole Miss and he said that could change should the Tigers offer. “I want to get down to Ole Miss again for another visit,” he said. “Hopefully, that will be soon. I think it will be an official (visit).” He named East Carolina as another school he plans to officially visit. Carter is in no hurry to make a decision and could take another trip to Clemson before he commits. He did not name a leader. His offers are from Ole Miss, East Carolina, Arkansas State, Georgia State, Southern Miss and Tulane.
