Clemson coach Brad Brownell has one scholarship in his pocket for the spring signing period and would like to add a big man to his class. The player he is eying right now is Sidy Mohamed Djitte (6-10 230) of Senegal and Northwood Temple Academy in Fayetteville, NC. Brownell is scheduled to visit Mohamed Djitte Thursday in Fayetteville. “He really likes Clemson,” said his coach Chris Lattimer. “He likes their engineering program and he likes coach Brownell and coach Grant. They’ve been great in the recruiting process.” Mohamed Djitte plans to take an official visit to Clemson around April 12th. He’s also looking hard at Old Dominion, Auburn and Ohio State. “He’s not ready to commit yet to anybody,” his coach said. “He’s open right now.” Mohamed Djitte was named the region player of the year after averaging 17 points and 12 rebounds per game. “He has a real high motor and is very active around the basket,” Lattimer said. “He’s an above average shot blocker. Most of his offense comes from tip ins and garbage baskets but he does have a baby hook going right to left.” A broken foot suffered last June sidelined Mohamed Djitte until the start of the season and set back his offensive development according to his coach.
DE Harold Landry (6-3 225) of Fayetteville, NC visited spring practices at USC and Clemson earlier this month. Neither school has offered yet but there is mutual interest between Landry and the schools. “At South Carolina, I saw the best player in the country, Jadeveon Clowney, go to work,” Landry said. “It was an intense practice, a lot of shouting and yelling. I like that about them. Their facilities are gorgeous, and who wouldn’t want to go to the SEC. Clemson started out with the Oklahoma Drill. There was a lot of hitting, very intense. And they have one of the nicest facilities, too. I talked with coach Venables about coming to camp getting an offer.” Landry said USC is evaluating new video on him in trying to decide on an offer. He has also been to North Carolina twice and will go to Boston College April 5th. His top group right now is USC, Clemson, Boston College and North Carolina with no favorite. “I’m trying to see what offers I get and evaluate them,” he said. “South Carolina and Clemson offers would most likely move them to the top.” Landry has offers from Boston College, Appalachian State and East Carolina. Last season he had 95 tackles and 8 sacks.
