Pearman checks on five-star OT

This five-star offensive tackle is looking to narrow his list of offers down this summer. Where does Clemson stand now and more important, will the Tigers make the cut?

Clemson special teams coordinator/tight ends coach Danny Pearman was active in the Charlotte area on Tuesday. One of his stops was by Mallard Creek High School to see Humphries.

Plenty of others have already stopped through. North Carolina, N.C. State, South Carolina, Alabama, Miami, Wake Forest, Georgia and Auburn came by this week. Florida is scheduled to visit on Monday.

Out of those schools, there's one that's sticking out the most.

"Florida's probably number one for me right now," Humphries recently told "I'm probably going to try to narrow it down to five or 10 during the summer."

Where does Clemson stand?

"They're definitely in the top five. I don't quite know where, but they're definitely in the top five," he said.

When asked, what has the Tigers in contention? Humphries said, "I just love the coaches."

The No. 6 ranked offensive tackle will take his official visits this fall.

"I'll probably take my officials and wherever it feels like home," he said.

Humphries plans to graduate early, so a decision will be made before the end of the calendar year. Top Stories
