Last round of visitors

Clemson's final round of official visitors will be in this weekend, and there could be another commitment in store for the 2011 class.

The headliner of the weekend's guests is the No. 1 defensive end in the nation, five-star Jadeveon Clowney.

Anyone that's followed his recruitment over the last couple of years might call it the worst kept secret of the cycle. Clowney is believed to be South Carolina bound.

Five-star defensive end Jadeveon Clowney last visited Clemson for the Miami game last season.
But the on again off again relationship with Clemson is on down the stretch.

Around this time last year, he was in town for the Tigers' first junior day of 2010. He was back in town for a few hours over the summer while the Dabo Swinney Football Camp was in session. His last visit to Clemson was for the Miami game.

He nixed plans to attend Clemson's game against South Carolina in November.

The official visit to Clemson, which was originally scheduled for Jan. 14-16, was cancelled when former defensive ends coach Chris Rumph left for Alabama.

Rumph's replacement, Marion Hobby, has since smoothed things over and got Clemson back in line for an official.

Clowney cancelled last weekend's official visit plans for Florida to take an unofficial to Columbia.

Because he has a basketball game on Friday night, he'll be a late arrival on Friday.

Clowney won't sign on signing day. He'll wait to decide on his birthday, Feb. 14.

North Carolina is in play for an official visit. He's also visited Alabama.

Three-star guard Spencer Region, who played in the Under Armour All-American Game, will mke his first visit to Clemson this weekend.
Also due in Clemson for the weekend is Spencer Region, the No. 19 rated guard in the nation. A former Auburn commit, Region will make his decision between Clemson. That will be announced on signing day, but a silent commitment could be made before then.

Clemson figures to be in very good shape with Region, who spoke to CUTigers on Thursday night.

His decision will come down to Clemson and Auburn.

Three-star offensive tackle Isaiah Battle, the only committed prospect scheduled to visit, will enroll in prep school before he visits Clemson.

Battle, who attends The Blue Ridge School in Virginia, is from Brooklyn, N.Y. rates him as the No. 101 offensive tackle in the class.

The visit to Clemson will be his first and only official visit. Top Stories
