QB Jameis Winston Profile
CUTigers recently caught up with the Hueytown (Ala.) junior about his most recent contact with the Clemson coaching staff.
"It went pretty good," he said. "We tried to work something out for me to get down there. With baseball and stuff going on, I'm just trying to figure something out."
Winston hasn't met Morris in person, but his coach at Hueytown gave a good review.
"My coach actually talked some ball with him, so he really likes him," Winston said. "If my coach likes him, then I'll like him."
Last weekend, he visited Alabama for an intra-squad baseball game. He'll be back in Tuscaloosa for junior day.
Winston is hoping that a visit to Clemson could be in the cards on Feb. 26.
"When I spoke to coach Cheese and coach Morris, they want to get me up there before baseball season really gets going," he said.
Lately, Florida State, Alabama, LSU and Notre Dame have been in the most contact.
"I'm going to stay open," Winston said. "Alabama and Florida State are at the top together. LSU, Ohio State and Notre Dame, they're still in the picture. LSU, they're really coming up, because I'm starting to be in contact with them, a lot.
"Clemson is in the picture. Like I said, I'm open. I'm ready to get this thing really started, after signing day. The spring camps are going to start again."
The plan is to have a commitment made before the start of his senior football season.
As a junior, he threw for 2,342 yards and 17 touchdowns and rushed for 870 yards and 11 touchdowns.
