TE Jeb Blazevich of Charlotte may announce his decision sooner than originally planned. Blazevich was going to wait until the summer to make a decision but now says mid-May is more likely. His final six are Clemson, Alabama, Georgia, Notre Dame, Ole Miss and Ohio State. Blazevich’s last visits were to Clemson, Georgia, Notre Dame and Ole Miss with his next trip scheduled for Alabama Friday. “The Clemson visit went great but I’ve been there so many times that I know what to expect,” he said. “I went to Georgia before that so it was a good comparative. I saw how they run their offenses and the day-to-day operations.” Blazevich spoke highly of his Notre Dame trip. “It’s a special place, no doubt about it,” said Blazevich. “They use their tight end a lot and they have a great alumni base.” As for Ole Miss, four of Blazevich’s cousins attend the school prompting him to say, “That’s a plus.” Blazevich wants to keep his leaders close to the vest and added, “It really wouldn’t be fair for me to go to Alabama with a preconceived notion of who my favorite is. I need to go there with an open mind.”
LB Dwight Williams of Gardena, CA Tuesday night revealed a reduced list of 16 schools he’s considering, and Clemson is on the list. Joining the Tigers are Arizona State, Cal, Florida, Georgia, Miami, Michigan, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Oregon, Oregon State, Ole Miss, Tennessee, UCLA, Southern Cal and Washington. He cut his list down from 42 offers. “Thank you to the 42 Universities that have offered me a scholarship and I don’t want to waste your time if I am not interested,” Williams posted. Williams did not indicate any leaders from this group.
DB Tony Brown of Beaumont, TX has nearly 30 offers to include Clemson. Brown runs track and is nationally ranked in hurdles and the 100M. “I’m number one in the country in the 110(M) hurdles and number five in the 100(M),” said Brown. “I haven’t really had time to visit any schools but I do when I can.” The two schools Brown has visited are Alabama and Texas. “To get to talk to a national champion head coach that you’ve only seen on TV is pretty cool,” said Brown of Nick Saban and his Alabama visit. “Both schools were amazing.” Though Brown has not heard from Clemson of late, he is not ruling out the possibility of a visit. “I want to see as many schools as I can so I know I’m making the right decision,” he said. “I would like to see what Clemson has to offer.” One caveat to his recruitment said Brown, “I’ve made it clear that I’ll only go to a school that lets me run track and play football. Track is my first love.” He does not have any favorites.
DE Bryson Allen-Williams of Ellenwood, GA is on a trip to the West Coast to visit UCLA and Southern Cal. He tweeted this afternoon that he is “strongly considering” the Bruins. He has been favoring USC.
