One of those is a jumbo athlete that plays for one of the state's premier programs.

Buford High School junior Dillon Lee already has an offer from Clemson to his name. The Tigers' offer came through early this summer.

He recently spoke to CUTigers for the latest on his recruitment.

"I'm actually planning to go to the Clemson, Miami game in October," he said.

It will be the first trip of any kind that Lee's made to Tigertown.

"I've never seen it or anything. I've never been to the university. I'm pretty excited about going down there and checking it out," he said.

Clemson is recruiting Lee as an athlete right now. He plays both tight end and outside linebacker at Buford, but has a preference for one position at the next level.

"I enjoy defense more. I just feel like I'm better," Lee said.

Alabama, Georgia, South Carolina, Auburn and Nebraska are a few of the schools that he's hearing from already.

"I'm open to all schools. I don't really have a favorite," Lee said. "I'm interested in schools that are interested in me. The coaches, the facilities and somewhere I can get better as a football player and get an education."

His brother is former Scout.com three-star Dallas Lee. The elder Lee was ranked as the No. 20 offensive guard in the class of 2009.
