Big recruiting weekend in Tigertown unveils its lists of prospects who are scheduled to visit Clemson for Saturday's nationally televised showdown with No. 21 Auburn.

Several top-flight prospects will stop by Death Valley this weekend, to make up the biggest collection of prospects the Tigers have hosted this season.

In the 2012 class, arguably the biggest name on the visitor's list is four-star defensive tackle Carlos Watkins. The No. 11 defensive tackle in the class of 2012 will announce his decision on Oct. 14 -- that's senior night at Chase High School.

Clemson, Florida, Alabama and South Carolina make up the four finalists. It's likely a Clemson, Florida race, with the Tigers holding a slight edge.

Saturday marks Watkins' first trip to Clemson since he visited in August during preseason camp. He has also visited recently visited Florida.

Clemson will also welcome newly offered defensive tackle Josh Brown. The South Aiken High School prospect saw the Tigers' first two games of the season, so it comes as no surprise that he'll make it to No. 3.

His announcement won't be made until the end of his season, but Clemson is considered the heavy favorite.

South Carolina commitment Kwinton Smith will make the trip with a contingent of prospects from Dillon High School. The group will head to Columbia for the Gamecocks' home opener, which kicks off at 6 p.m.

Another senior from Dillon who will be with the group is defensive back Logan Tunage.

South Carolina's top offensive tackle for 2013, D.J. Park, has an offer from Clemson and Auburn. (
The following Clemson commitments will also be in town:
DE Martin Aiken, LB T.J. Burrell, OL Patrick Destefano. S Ronald Geohaghan, C Jay Guillermo, OT Oliver Jones, LB Shaquille Lawson, P Bradley Pinion and S Cordrea Tankersley.

The 2013 crew will be headlined by two offensive linemen -- guard Dillon King and tackle D.J. Park.

King is every bit the prospect as Park, a four-star. Both camped at Clemson over the summer and both have offers from the Tigers.

It's likely to be an in-state battle for both, though King grew up a Gamecock fan.

Not to be overlooked is running back Jabo Lee, a shifty scat-back who's already picked up an offer from East Carolina.

Other in-state prospects scheduled for Saturday include Lake City outside linebacker Devaris Brunson and Gaffney defensive end Jaylen Miller. Neither have picked up an offer.

Yet another big visitor from Jacksonville, Fla. will hit campus this weekend. Up this go-round is Sandalwood High School defensive Demarcus Walker.

He last visited Tigertown for the Dabo Swinney Football Camp, where an offer was extended.

Milton High School High School in Alpharetta, Ga. will send a trio of prospects to Tigertown -- running back Peyton Barber, guard Cory Helms and wide receiver Ryan Jenkins.

Quarterback Riley Ferguson has long favored Clemson. He's also received offers from LSU, Michigan and Virginia Tech. (
Barber and Jenkins received offers after camp. Jenkins, the younger brother of Clemson defensive back Martin Jenkins, was a frequent visitor in Tigertown last season. This will be his first game of the 2013 campaign.

A trio from Butler High School in Matthews, N.C. will also be in town.

Quarterback Riley Ferguson has long favored Clemson. He's also received offers from LSU, Michigan and Virginia Tech.

Wide receiver Uriah LeMay, has several offers to his name, including Clemson. He's visited Clemson many times over the last several years, some of which were with his brother Christian LeMay, who's a quarterback at Georgia.

New to the scene is running back Josh Gilsson. Through three games this season, Glisson has five catches for 150 yards and 45 carries for 400 yards.

Kevin Crosby might be the biggest name in the state's 2014 class. The linebacker/tight end has multiple offers to his name already, including Clemson and will be on hand Saturday as well.

Fellow Bamberg-Ehrhardt standout Martin Aiken is a Clemson commitment. Plus, old friends and BE legends Ricky Sapp and Da'Quan Bowers went to Clemson. Still, there's a long way to go before the school's latest big name makes his decision.

Gaffney wide receiver Shaq Davidson will make his first visit to Clemson as a prospect.

Dillon will also send middle linebacker Joe Blue. Top Stories
