OG Jacob Southerland Profile
Whitefield Academy junior guard Jacob Southerland told CUTigers.com that the Tigers first-year running backs coach made the visit on Friday.
The first-year Clemson coach recently talked to the 6-foot-4, 260-pound junior.
"He said they just put him on recruiting my area, so I'll be talking to him from now on," Southerland said.
Georgia, Georgia Tech, Wake Forest, Vanderbilt, Central Florida and Air Force have also visited the Class-A private Christian school that sits just outside of the I-285 loop, north of I-20 and west of the Georgia state capital.
Although Central Florida remains his only offer to date, Southerland believes the local school could be next.
"I think my next offer is going to come when I go to camp and really show myself. Everybody's saying that I play single-A, so it's kind of working against me, because I don't play against the big school competition," he said. "Georgia Tech just told me straight up, if you come to camp and do real well, we'll be able to give you an offer right on the spot."
He "definitely" plans to make it to Clemson for camp. Other camp visits are uncertain at this time.
"I don't know yet…we're making a little calendar, me and my high school coach," Southerland said.
He's visited Clemson twice for games and also attended the January Junior Day.
Prior to Elliott, defensive coordinator Kevin Steele recruited Southerland's portion of Atlanta.
