Tarboro High School running back Todd Gurley has been in contact Clemson defensive ends coach Marion Hobby. Their relationship began when Hobby was on staff at Duke.

"I just started getting back in contact with him, well I've been in contact with him. I talk to him once every two weeks or once a week," Gurley told CUTigers.com on Tuesday night.

Clemson defensive tackles coach Dan Brooks stopped by the school on Wednesday for a look at the 6-foot, 190-pound running back.

"I've been waiting for Clemson. I guess they're the last one to stop by--one that I was interested in," Gurley said. "I've always wanted an offer from Clemson."

On Tuesday, he received offers from Georgia, Georgia Tech and Maryland. The Scout.com three-star believes Clemson could be the next school to come forward with an offer.

Are any schools standing out?

"Most schools, like Virginia Tech, Clemson, UNC, Auburn, Georgia--a bunch of schools," Gurley said.

There are no plans for summer visits.

"It's just up in the air. I just want to see some of the schools that I'm interested in," he said.

As a junior, Gurley played both running back and safety. He rushed 139 times for 1,472 yards and 26 touchdowns, returned six kickoffs for 290 yards and two touchdowns. He also caught a touchdown pass and threw one.

On the defensive side of the ball, Gurley had 79 tackles and an interception.
