OLB T.J. Burrell Profile
Steele was joined by Clemson running backs coach Tony Elliott, who recruits the area.
"It means a lot. I guess it means I'm one of their top prospects. He wants to see how I play, what I need to work on, what type of player I am," Burrell told CUTigers.com earlier this week.
The 6-foot-1, 200-pound defender has maintained a steady relationship with Elliott since he arrived to Clemson earlier this year.
"I talk to him a lot really, because he gets to talk to me through e-mail, sometimes I give him a call," Burrell said. "We have pretty good communication between us."
Other than a few e-mails, most of Burrell's contact with Steele has been face-to-face encounters.
"Coach Steele and another coach, I can't remember which one, are coming again next Monday," Burrell said.
Along with Clemson, Nebraska, Auburn, Georgia Tech, East Carolina and N.C. State have all stopped by the school.
Burrell, who was first offered by Clemson and was a mainstay at all home games last season, has offers from South Carolina, Vanderbilt and Illinois.
He believes North Carolina could be next.
"They want to see me in person. They should be coming down next week to see me practice," Burrell said.
