OLB Devaris Brunson Profile
Lake City High School junior outside linebacker Devaris Brunson visited Clemson twice last fall—first, for the Miami game, and again for the South Carolina game.
"It's a good school. It's real big. The crowd was loud," he recently told CUTigers.com.
What stood out about the trip?
"Just the crowd, really," he said.
For now, Clemson is the only school—that he knows of—that is showing a strong interest.
"Coach [Matt Apicella], he's the one that's been telling me that they're on me," Brunson said.
It's a mutual interest, too. The 6-foot-1, 210-pound outside linebacker has "a good interest" in the Tigers.
Are there any other schools that are of interest?
"South Carolina," Brunson said. "Mainly, [because] they're close to home."
Scout.com South Recruiting Manager Chad Simmons recently wrote about Brunson, "…but he has the ability and the size that will likely make that change in the not so distant future.
"He is a 6-foot-1, 210 pound linebacker in the 2013 class that can run and hit. He has started since his ninth grade year and he will likely emerge as one of the best in the 2013 class before all is said and done."
In June, Brunson participated in the South Carolina MVP Cam and was named one of the top performers.
"Brunson had a strong day and was arguably the top linebacker at this event. He looked good in the drills," Simmons said. "He is very impressive physically, and he can run. He'll be the next big recruit out of Lake City."
