He still isn't sure whether or not he'll be in Clemson for this weekend's game versus No. 16 Miami.

Bellamy communicated with CUTigers last week and said that he was indeed planning to be in Tigertown for the Homecoming game. The trip up to Clemson would be a tough task with the noon kickoff on Saturday.

Still, a trip for the Maryland game could be in the works. That's when C.J. Spiller's No. 28 will be retired.

"I know for a fact that I'll be there for that one," Bellamy said.

He also plans to visit for the South Carolina game.

Although a trip to Florida for a game could go down, Bellamy insisted it's not a big deal. He simply would like to see a friend play.

"I told Trey Burton, he's one of my close friends, we grew up with each other, played football against each other—big rivals," Bellamy said. "I told him I was going to come up and watch one of his games…I really haven't talked to him about it.

"I don't want to make it a thing where people are talking like I'm trying to go Florida or anything."

At the same time, Florida is still pursuing Bellamy the heaviest. But the recruitment from other schools doesn't make much of a difference to him.

"That means a lot of blessings have come to me since I'm wanted by so many D-1 colleges," Bellamy said. "I'm really not interested in them. I went to the where I want to go at and I committed there. I'm just ready to play ball there."

"I'm 100 percent with Clemson, all the way."

Through the first four games on the schedule for Charlotte High School (Punta Gorda, Fla.), Bellamy said he's rushed for close to 900 yards and 15 touchdowns. He's chomping at the bit to take his game up to Tigertown.

"I'm so ready it doesn't make sense. It just seems like high school isn't even the same anymore," he said. "It's like I'm a [video game] created player playing against D-3 schools."

Bellamy's motivated by the Scout.com No. 5 ranking among 2011 running backs.

"I just want to prove myself and that I should be rated No. 1 running back in the nation," he said. "I'm just trying to prove myself. As long as my team keeps winning, it's good."
