Clemson landed a commitment Sunday night from one of the top junior prospects in North Carolina in DB Tanner Muse (6-3 200) of Belmont. Muse is a safety and had 87 tackles and four interceptions this season. He also returned a pair of punts for touchdowns. Muse visited Clemson three times during the season and had learned enough from those trips to realize that’s where he needed to be. “It’s just a great atmosphere,” Muse said. “They have great crowds for the big games and then The Citadel game had a sellout crowd and that just showed me that they have great fan support. I feel like it’s just one of the best colleges in the country. I also have a great connection with the coaches and the players.” Muse also had offers from North Carolina, NC State, Louisville, Ole Miss, Duke, Virginia, Vanderbilt, Northwestern and Michigan. He is the fourth commitment for Clemson’s 2015 class.
OL Kareem Are of Fort Scott JC, KS made an official visit to Ole Miss Thursday thru Saturday. He had planned to make a decision Monday but is going to wait until at least Tuesday morning. . Are did admit to, for the first time, having a pretty good feeling about where he plans to go. “I’m happy because a week ago I had no idea,” Are said. “The opportunity and the feeling I get, the good feeling I have,” he said in explaining why he liked this school. “I’m going to talk to talk it over with my mom. If she don’t like the school that I’m thinking, I’ve got to make sure she’s okay with it. I’m going to explain to her why.” Are said his mom does not have a favorite. As for the visit to Ole Miss, Are was impressed. “It went very well surprisingly, I wasn’t expecting it to go that well to be honest with you. Just like all the other visits, it’s a lot harder now. Everyone is like family out there. When they told me they were graduating five O-linemen, I had to see what’s up.” Are talked with USC recruiter Deke Adams Saturday after he got back from his visit. He’s expecting Adams and his Ole Miss recruiter to visit him this week. Are is also considering Florida State and Penn State.
