Big time visitors expected in Clemson

The lineup of prospects scheduled to be on hand for the second session of the Dabo Swinney Football could be even stronger than last week's group.

Like the first session, session two will run from Tuesday morning until Thursday afternoon.

Headlining the week's visitors is three-star quarterback Chad Kelly. Kelly will participate in on field drills during his one-day camp stay.

He will fly south from Buffalo, N.Y. for a visit to Alabama on Tuesday before he heads to Tigertown. The nation's No. 29 quarterback in the class of 2012 is not expected to visit Florida State while visiting the region.

A visit will be announced at his high school on Thursday.

Zac Brooks' first visit to Clemson will be this week's stop for the Dabo Swinney Football Camp.
Not to be overlooked is four-star Zac Brooks. Classified as a wide receiver by, Brooks was offered by Clemson offensive coordinator Chad Morris as a 3-back, a hybrid H-back, tight end position.

Brooks hails from Jonesboro, Ark. Auburn offensive coordinator Gus Malzahn, a friend and mentor of Morris, has also offered. Clemson, Auburn, Arkansas and Notre Dame are the frontrunners for Brooks.

Clemson commitment Germone Hopper, a four-star wide receiver from Beary Academy in Charlotte, N.C., is scheduled to be in town for the first two days of camp. He'll be joined by his fellow four-star teammate Nick Dawson, who's ranked as the No. 28 outside linebacker in the class of 2012.

Dawson has kicked around the idea of joining Hopper at Clemson but has been encouraged by his father to look at other options. Louisville, Miami and Tennessee firmly entered the mix after Dawson named Clemson as his favorite. Louisville, his hometown, could provide the biggest threat to Clemson.

Another high profile set of teammates is scheduled to visit. This duo will travel from East High School in Memphis, Tenn. Three-star cornerback Will Redmond and four-star running back Brian Kimbrow will be in town on Tuesday and Wednesday. Clemson has offered Redmond but not Kimbrow.

Redmond has held Clemson in high regard since picking up the offer during the early part of the May evaluation period. He transferred to East for his senior season and could team up with Kimbrow again at the next level.

Clemson wide receivers coach/recruiting coordinator Jeff Scott has already reeled in one defensive back from Tallahassee, Fla. this month. Might T.J. Davis be next?
Three-star T.J. Davis has kept the Tigers high on his list for quite some time. The No. 32 player at his position attends the same high school [Godby-Tallahassee, Fla.] that sent DeAndre McDaniel to Clemson. Davis will be in on Tuesday.

Perhaps the most talented 2012 in-state prospect without an offer from either of the two major schools is Fairfield-Central cornerback Devontre Parnell. Space for defensive backs in the Tigers' upcoming recruiting haul is at a premium with last week's commitments from Cordrea Tankersley, Travis Blanks and Ronald Geohaghan.

The possible matchups that Davis, Parnell and Redmond will see with Hopper and Tramel Terry could be the most anticipated events during the session. Terry, who the Tigers offered as a wide receiver, will play defensive back during his junior season at Goose Creek High School. It will be interesting to see if Terry jumps from one side of the ball to the other at some point. The 5-foot-11, 173-pounder might actually project better as a defender on the next level.

There's no doubt as to where Trey Johnson projects on the next level. Clemson offered the outside linebacker from Central Gwinnett High School [Georgia] during the May evaluation period. The Tigers' offer joined a host of others for the 6-foot-1, 208-pound rising junior.

Trey Johnson's Godmother is a Clemson graduate.
Tankersley will make his first visit to Clemson since committing. The four-star, who's classified as a wide receiver, should arrive in the later part of the session, if not after it. Tankersley would work out as a safety—the position he will play as a Tiger—if he does participate in the camp.

Another talented in-state defender without offers from Clemson or South Carolina is defensive lineman Wesley Scott. The 6-foot-3, 240-pound rising senior from Ridgeland holds an offer from Miami (Ohio).

Mauldin offensive tackle Jonathan McLaughlin remains under evaluation by Clemson. Like Parnell, he could go without an offer from the Tigers because of the tight numbers along the offensive line with Patrick Destefano and Jay Guillermo already on board as commitments. McLaughlin will be in town on June 15.

Clemson first evaluated Dolphus Pearson as an H-back. The Tigers are currently evaluating him as a linebacker. Offensive line coach Robbie Caldwell stopped by Southeast Raleigh High School in May to checkup on Pearson.

Three-star safety Chaz Elder, who's versatile enough to move around in the defensive backfield, has not made a definite decision as to whether or not he will be in town this week. Elder has consistently listed Clemson. Cornerback would be his likely position if he were to head to Clemson. Georgia, South Carolina and LSU round out the schools that he lists as favorites.

Other possible guests include 2013 linebacker Daniel Garces, 2012 defensive end James Middleton [Timberland] and 2013 running back/linebacker Tristan Mumford, 2013 quarterback Carlis Parker, both of whom attend Statesville High School [N.C.].

Running back Tyshon Dye, who received an offer from Clemson late last week, will be in town on Wednesday.

Fox Creek High School [North Augusta] 2012 athlete Marty Williams is scheduled to participate in Wednesday's workouts. The Clemson lean hopes to hit up a couple of other schools for visits this summer. So far, Clemson is the only school that he's visited. The Tigers like him as a safety. Others have offered/expressed interest in him as a quarterback, running back or wide receiver.

A trio from Eagles Land Christian Academy [McDonough, Ga.] will be through this week, too. A 2013 defensive end, Isaac Rochell, picked up a Clemson offer earlier this spring. He'll be joined by classmate Keyante Green and 2012 defensive end Justin Thomason. When the current recruiting rankings are updated, Thomason will be listed as a high three-star.

Butler High School [Matthews, N.C.] 2013 wide receiver Uriah LeMay will attend the camp on Tuesday.
