A week after he made an unofficial visit to Georgia, Clemson commitment Travis Blanks will take his official visit to Tigertown.
The four-star safety told Scout.com national recruiting analyst Chad Simmons that he remains committed to the Tiger, but this weekend could play a critical role in determining where Blanks stands with Clemson. In the past, the staff has discouraged their committed prospects to take visits, official or unofficial, to other schools.

"Travis Blanks is not looking to do any "official" interviews right now and he does not want things to get too crazy for him, but this Clemson commitment did visit Georgia on Saturday.
"He had a very good time, he had some one on one time with the UGA staff, and he and his mother enjoyed the trip to UGA.
"Blanks remains committed to Clemson and he plans to visit Clemson next weekend officially.
"After that, an official to UGA could happen later this season.
"UGA was down at his school on Friday and they are in this more than most thought/knew."
