The Tigers' third-year coach checked on Tyler Knox, who holds several offers from across the country.

"Pitt came Wednesday and they offered me after practice," he recently told "And I got offered by Oklahoma State. I got it right after practice. My coach talked to the coach from Oklahoma State."

Alabama, North Carolina and East Carolina have also stopped by Myrtle Beach in recent weeks.

The 6-foot-4, 228-pound defensive end exchanged a brief greeting with Pearman when he was at the school. It was the first-time the two had spoken.

"They just started recruiting me. That was my first time, seeing him down there," Knox said.

They have not spoken since the visit.

"He just came to practice. That was it. I gave him my phone number, he said he would give me a call," Knox said.

The junior has not taken a campus visit to Clemson, but he's been to the school. During his freshman year, Myrtle Beach played in the state championship game, which was in Death Valley.

"I haven't toured the facilities or anything like that," Knox said.

He's "thinking about" making a visit to Clemson this summer. Plans for other trips have not been settled.

Knox also holds offers from Southern California, Illinois, Kentucky, Kentucky, Miami, Mississippi, N.C. State, Purdue and UCF.

As a junior, Knox finished with 50 tackles, 12 sacks and two forced fumbles. Top Stories
