DB Mark Fields Jr. of Cornelius, NC made his second visit this season to Clemson for the Florida State game. He was at the Georgia game and thought the setting then was incredible, but this past Saturday took things to a new level for Fields. “It was awesome, best I’ve ever seen,” said Fields who talked with Dabo Swinney and Mike Reed prior to the game. While the Tigers suffered a lopsided loss, Fields says that does not affect his thinking about possibly going to Clemson. “A game like that doesn’t affect me in any kind of way. Things like that happen. Something like doesn’t affect anything in my recruiting.” Clemson’s secondary coach Reed made it clear to Fields how much he’d like to coach him at Clemson. “Me and coach Reed talk on a daily basis, so we where just talking about things that he wants to do when I come out for 2015 and how he wants to use me on the defense,” Fields said. “We talked about what their gameplan was going into the game, how they were going to attack the Florida State receivers.” Fields already was high on the Tigers and this visit did nothing to change that. “Of the offers I have right now my top two I’d have to say are Clemson and South Carolina,” said Fields who also has offers from Ohio State, Tennessee, North Carolina, NC State, SC State and Charlotte. He has also been to USC for a game and is going to the Alabama-LSU game noting that Alabama has been recruiting him hard. He plans to get to USC for the Mississippi State or Florida game and hopes to go back to Clemson for another game. The Gamecocks are working Fields just as hard as the Tigers. “I hear from South Carolina just as much as I hear from Clemson,” he said. “Me and coach Brown have a real good relationship. Every day they tell me I’m the top guy for 2015 they have on their board. That’s real cool to hear that they think of me so highly.” Is there a favorite for Fields between the two rivals? “No sir, they are the same to me,” he said. This season Fields has 25 tackles and 2 interceptions for his 6-1 team.
OL Jordan Prestwood of Arizona Western JC will make an official visit to Florida State this weekend. He also plans to take official visits to USC, Ole Miss, Auburn and Oklahoma.
WR Juval Mollette of Randleman, NC was back at Clemson Saturday for the Florida State game, his second trip to Clemson in the past two seasons. He was in for the NC State game last season. “I talked to coach Caldwell and coach Scott and that went pretty good,” Mollette said. “The atmosphere was really nice. They were glad I made it down and want me to come back up. I think it was good to go for a second time and get to know the coaches.” Mollette has also been to USC, North Carolina, NC State, Virginia and Virginia Tech this season. He has no other visit plans but might try to get to Tennessee. Mollette has offers from all of the schools he’s visited along with Georgia Tech, Wake Forest, East Carolina, Duke and Tennessee. He does not have any favorites. Mollette added that Clemson is showing a lot of interest and hears from Caldwell regularly.
Junior DB Calvin Brewton of Miami picked up his latest offer from UCF two weeks ago. Brewton is showing some interest in the Knights but still has Clemson and Florida State as his co-leaders. “I’ve heard Central Florida is a good school,” Brewton said. “There are several kids there that played at my high school so I know some of the players. They also just picked up a big win against Louisville.” Brewton continues to hear from Clemson and says the loss to Florida State has no bearing on his interest. “I was really surprised they lost like that, to be honest,” he said. “I still talk with coach (Brent) Venables on facebook and am very interested in them.” The distance from home will make a trip to Clemson this season difficult for Brewton but he s holding out hope he can make the trip. This weekend he plans to attend a game at either Florida State or Miami. His offers are from Clemson, Florida State, West Virginia, Central Florida, South Florida and Lousiiana-Lafayette.
