DE Andrew Williams of McDonough, GA has a final six of Clemson, USC, Tennessee, Notre Dame, Ole Miss and Auburn. There is no order to his list and he won’t take official visits until after his season. Tennessee will be the school left out of official visits because he was there this past weekend. Williams has not made it to Clemson or USC for a game this season but said he may try to get to USC’s next home game. Williams said he’s hearing about every other day from Clemson. “They are having a great season and great potential on their defense,” Williams said. He’s also hearing regularly from USC and he’s aware of the Gamecocks’ need at his position. “I can see an opportunity with Jadeveon (Clowney) and the other guy (Chaz Sutton) leaving,” Williams said. “The other two (defensive ends) are probably like 200 pounds soaking wet (Williams weighs 250). I think I can go up there and make an impact if I did choose them.” Williams said he won’t make his decision until after his visits and he may wait to announce at the Army All American Game. So far this season Williams has recorded 6 sacks and he’s blocked 5 punts.
DE Cory Thomas of McCadory, AL said today he’s now favoring Tennessee. He visited there last weekend. He lists the other schools on his list in order as Mississippi State, Florida, Florida State and Clemson. He plans to take all of his official visits before making his decision.
Clemson is one of the five offers for junior QB Lorenzo Nunez of Kennesaw, GA. His other offers are from Ohio State, Tennessee, Kentucky and Charlotte. He’s also getting interest from Florida, Florida State and Miami. Nunez said he talks to Clemson weekly and they want him to come in for a game. He’s expecting quarterback coach Chad Morris to come to one of his games in the next month. Nunez feels good about Morris’ interest in him. “I know he’s told me I’m among the top 10-15 quarterbacks on their roster right now,” Nunez said. Nunez was at Clemson for the Georgia game and was at Georgia for the LSU game. He’s going to Ohio State October 26th for the Penn State game. There is no favorite at this point. “Right now I’m just having fun doing it and watching the games,” he said adding that he would be a good fit in Clemson’s offense. “Most definitely. I’ve been running spread kind of things since I was in the seventh grade.” Nunez does not have a timetable for a decision.
DL Zeek Rodney of South Pointe was contacted Wednesday by Syracuse on Facebook and expects a call from the Orange Friday. “They told me liked my film and they liked me as a player,” Rodney said. “I like them because it’s a big name and they’re joining the ACC.” Rodney has offers from Boston College, SC State, Louisiana-Lafayette, Marshall, Appalachian State, Toledo and Ball State but does not have any favorites. Marshall and Boston College will each receive an official visit from Rodney soon. “I’m going to Marshall November 2nd and I’m supposed to go to Boston (College) in late-November or early-December,” he said. Rodney is nursing a pulled hamstring muscle this season but has managed to compile eight sacks and nine tackles for loss thus far.
