LB Skai Moore of Ft. Lauderdale said Friday he’s looking at four programs now that he’s decommitted from Rutgers. Moore cited USC, Tennessee, Vanderbilt and Arkansas as the four under consideration. He has visited Vanderbilt and will visit USC next weekend. He has not set any other official visits. “I’m open right now,” Moore said. “I’m not going to make any irrational decisions. I’ll take my time with it and make a family decision.” Moore has been talking with USC recruiters Kirk Botkin and Grady Brown and was told he would be used in the way DeVonte Holloman was used. “They seem like really good guys and I’m looking forward to getting there and checking things out,” he said. “There’s a chance to get in there and play pretty early, so I’m excited.” Moore does not have a favorite or a decision timetable and could go all the way to Signing Day.
USC commitment LB Mo Camera of Cumming, GA told TheBigSpur.com he is not taking an official visit to Wake Forest later this month. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported yesterday he would visit Wake January 25th after visiting USC January 18th. Camera said he’s not visiting anywhere other than USC.
Goose Creek LB Jalen Stevens announced on Twitter this afternoon he has committed to Connecticut.
OL Tyrone Crowder of Hamlet, NC has postponed his official visit to Clemson for this weekend due to an illness with his mother. Crowder plans to visit Clemson next weekend. He also plans to visit Georgia. That leaves Clemson with three targets making official visits this weekend…DL Montravius Adams, DE Carl Lawson and DB Korrin Wiggins. 10 Clemson commitments will also make their official visits this weekend.
DE Carl Lawson of Alpharetta, GA has been committed to Auburn since March, but going into his official visit this weekend at Clemson, his coach said Thursday Lawson no longer feels committed and is open regarding his decision. “I don’t think he considers himself an Auburn commitment,” said Milton High head coach Howie DeCristofaro. “He wants to look and see where the best fit is for him, and I don’t think he knows. He’s been to Clemson for a game and he’s been to Auburn and Ole Miss. He’s going to look and see. He’s really tired of it. He wants to keep an open mind and see what they have.” DeCristofaro, who is a good friend of Clemson defensive line coach Dan Brooks, said Clemson’s defense is a good fit for Lawson who recorded 26.5 sacks last season. “He’s a 4-3 guy and Clemson is a 4-3 (defense),” the coach said. “They got his attention when they beat LSU. He wants to stay as close to home as he can. His dad had a kidney transplant about a year ago. I think he will take the other visits and compare. I would be surprised if he pulls the trigger (on a commitment) this weekend.” Lawson’s parents will join him on the visit. He is scheduled to visit Tennessee January 18th and North Carolina on the 25th. Auburn’s new defensive line coach is former Georgia defensive line coach Rodney Garner. Garner did not pursue Lawson while at Georgia but wants him now for Auburn. It may be too late. “He knows I’m not a big Rodney Garner fan,” the coach said, “and neither is he.”
Shrine Bowl DB Korrin Wiggins of Durham, NC is a North Carolina commitment but is also considering Clemson and Ohio State. He has visited Ohio State, will visit Clemson this weekend and will go to North Carolina next weekend. “He’s wanting to see what every one has so he can compare,” said Hillside High coach Antonio King. “It’s only those three and he wants to learn about the (Clemson) program. Everybody recruiting him needs help on the back end. He’s a did that could come in and compete right away for a lot of playing time.” Wiggins and new Clemson secondary coach Mike Reed already have a relationship from Reed’s time at NC State. As for the strength of the commitment to UNC, on a scale of ten, King gave it a five. Wiggins’ parents will join him on the visit. This season Wiggins had 90 tackles with 7 interceptions. “He’s one of the smartest players I’ve coached,” King said. “He knows the game. He knows where he’s supposed to be and how people will attack.” Wiggins plays safety but can also play nickel corner.
TE Jeb Blazevich (6-5 223) of Charlotte has over 20 offers and has named Clemson, Georgia, Ohio State, Alabama, Notre Dame and Ole Miss as his final six in no order. “I think I’ll pick my school out of those schools,” Blazevich added. Blazevich is very familiar with Clemson and has a brother on the team. “My brother Davis is there so I’m always around (Clemson),” he said. “I’ve been talking to coach (Danny) Pearman since I was in the eighth grade. They’re telling me how they’ve known me the longest and I know what they’re about. That’s what they’re selling.” Ohio State has been the most complimentary. “Coach (Urban) Meyer is telling me I could be the next (Aaron) Hernandez,” he said. “He thinks I can play in the NFL.” Blazevich plans to visit Notre Dame, Ohio State and Alabama this spring, if possible. He does not have any favorites and would like to make a decision prior to his senior season.
RB Wadzaire Blanc (5-8 170) of Lake Nona, FL has offers from Florida Atlantic and Florida International with interest from Clemson, USC, Georgia Tech and Vanderbilt. A shoulder injury kept him out of his junior campaign which has programs taking the wait-and-see approach. “South Carolina has contacted me more,” Blanc said. “I haven’t heard much from Clemson this year because of my injury.” He named Clemson and USC his favorites with Clemson as his leader. “I really like Clemson because I’ve always looked up to CJ Spiller.” As for USC he said, “They’re telling me they like how I run and they want to see if I can come in and be a team player.” Blanc is focusing on strengthening his shoulder as does not have plans to visit any schools. “I think teams want to see how I do in my senior season,” said Blanc.
DB Tony Fields (5-11 195) of Tallahassee has offers from Ole Miss and Mississippi State with interest from Clemson, USC, Florida State, Georgia, Florida, Miami, Michigan, Michigan State and Oregon among others. “Pretty much all of the SEC schools are showing me interest,” Fields said. He named the Tigers and Gamecocks as two of his favorites. “I’ve visited both of those schools twice each,” he said. “They’re both in my top five or six right now. ” He says he is hearing similar comments from the two programs. “Clemson talked to me a couple of weeks ago and told me how they like what I do and that they think I fit into their system,” said Fields. “South Carolina is telling me the same thing. They also told me I’m one of the highest DBs on their board.” Fields will visit Alabama this spring and plans to take several other trips. He named USC, Clemson, Georgia, Alabama, Auburn, Florida, Ole Miss and Oregon as schools that he is very interested in. In seven games Fields totaled 83 tackles, six pass deflections, two forced fumbles and a sack. He did not name a leader.
WR Adly Enoicy (6-4 215) of Deerfield Beach, FL has offers from USC, Miami, Florida State, Florida International, Vanderbilt, Southern Cal and Louisiana-Lafayette among others. He is receiving interest from Oregon, Notre Dame and North Carolina. He says the Gamecocks have shown a lot of interest in him. “They tell me they are very interested and they think I could come in and play early,” Enoicy said. “They don’t think I would need to redshirt. I like how they use big wide receivers on the outside.” He has reciprocated the interest. “They are a very good team,” he said. “They have great coaches and good players. I would like to visit there in the future.” Schools Enoicy has visited include Stanford, California, Miami and Florida. He returns to Miami this Sunday for a junior day. “I want to look around and learn more about a lot of schools before I announce a top five,” said Enoicy. He does not have any favorites.
