South Carolina quarterbacks coach G.A. Mangus stopped by Lassiter last week.

The 6-foot-3, 198-pound quarterback camped at Clemson last summer after his freshman year and has visited Tigertown several times since. Alabama, Tennessee and Miami are also expressing interest in Printz, who threw for 2,152 yards and 21 touchdowns as a sophomore.

The frenzy of the recruiting process is full steam ahead.

"Right about now, for the next year or so—however long, it's hard to get acclimated to all the calls and the camps and all that stuff. Really, so far, I'm just kind of enjoying it," he recently told CUTigers.com. "I want to enjoy it as long as possible."

Earlier this month, Printz participated in the Nike Football Training Camp and Elite 11 at the University of Georgia.

"I feel like I could have done better. Part of that might just be the wind and the other part might be because it was so long," he said. "I could make plenty of excuses, but I think I just could have thrown the ball a little better. I don't think I did bad, but I don't think it was my best performance."

He'll head to Alabama this weekend for the Badger Sports 7-on-7. Several stops are also on tap for the summer.

"Nothing's set in stone yet. We're not sure about Clemson. We are going to Florida, South Carolina, Duke, Miami, Alabama and UGA," Printz said.

The rising junior does not claim any offers, but plenty are sure to be rolling in soon.

"I haven't started being picky and choosing everything," he said. "I plan, hopefully plan, going into my senior season, I would like to be committed by then, just so I can relax my senior year and not be all hectic."

Printz does know what he's looking for in a school.

"I want to feel comfortable on campus. I want to feel at home. The coaching staff and offense is a big deal," he said.
