Clemson hosts uncommitted '12 OL

Clemson hosted a three-star guard for an unofficial visit last weekend.

Oxford High School [Alabama] senior guard Michael Flint, who watched Clemson's 36-14 win over Boston College, last visited Tigertown in July.

"I played Friday night, so I left Saturday morning, probably about 6 o'clock my time and got there about 12, Clemson's time," he told CUTigers.com earlier this week. "Then, I left right after the game, because I had to get back. I just wanted to get down there because I hadn't been down there since the summer.

"That's one of my top interests. They've got four OL committed already, so it's sort of a sit back and wait and see thing."

The No. 25 offensive guard in the class of 2012 was once committed to Auburn, but he and those Tigers parted ways in June.

Before the Saturday trip, Flint spoke with the Clemson coaches about his status with them.

"They keep telling me that anything can happen, which is true," he said. "But I've also got to think about me, and I've got to make a decision sooner or later. I've been trying to get them to shoot me straight forward. Right now, they still seem interested. It's one of those things, I de-committed kind of late."

The 6-foot-4, 303-pound senior wants to make a commitment sometime in the very near future. For now, it'll either be Clemson or Georgia Tech.

"It really just depends on what I hear back from Clemson and what their final decision is," Flint said.

He recently took an unofficial visit to Georgia Tech for the North Carolina game.

"The next thing I'm probably going to do is take my official visit to Georgia Tech. After that, if Clemson wants me to take an official visit, I'll see where I am and set it up with them," Flint said.
