Clemson offensive guru Chad Morris has reached back to his home state of Texas and has offered several quarterback prospects the past two years. He’s not landed one yet but that could change for the 2015 class. Junior Blake Lynch (6-4 200) of Troup has Clemson, Baylor and Mississippi State as his top three at this point, in no order. Lynch has never visited Clemson but he’s got a good feel for Tiger football from talking with Morris and watching games on TV. “Clemson is dedicated to winning,” Lynch said. “They run a great offense and I fit their offense very well. It’s appealing with Boyd and Watkins making plays every game, an offense that’s very explosive.” Lynch hopes to get to a Clemson game this season and said location will not be a factor in his decision which he plans to make before his senior season. He was at Baylor last weekend and has also visited Mississippi State. “I will go anywhere,” Lynch said. Nebraska and TCU have also offered while Oregon is showing strong interest but has not offered. Lynch runs a spread and read option offense and accounted for 1500 yards and 25 touchdowns last season. Thru four games this season he’s accounted for 14 touchdowns.
Junior OL Martez Ivey (6-6 280) of Apopka, FL is considering a visit to UCF this weekend to watch USC play. The Gamecocks are among his offers. “I’ve talked to their running back coach (Everette Sands) several times,” Ivey said. “He has been by to see me and tells me he likes my footwork and how I finish blocks down field.” Ivey admitted that he is not too familiar with USC but is paying attention to the program. Clemson is another one of his offers but he has not heard from the Tigers as often. “One of their coaches came by to see me once and they let me know they had offered,” he said. “I don’t really know too much about them.” His most recent visit was to Florida last weekend and future visits remain uncertain. “I just love it there,” Ivey said. “I just love the atmosphere. It’s awesome. I may go back for another game this year.” Ivey added that he does not have any other trips planned. It depends on transportation. “I find my friends that are Miami, FSU or Florida fans that are already going to the game and I catch a ride with them,” he said. With several offers that include USC, Clemson, Florida State, Florida, Miami, Georgia, North Carolina, Ole Miss, Tennessee, LSU, Alabama, Auburn, Michigan, and Michigan State, Ivey says he does not have any favorites.
