Four-star OT offered by Clemson

Last week, Clemson sent out an offer to one the No. 4 prospect in Kentucky, who's also the 16th best offensive tackle in America. The Tigers are among some of the nation's elite programs vying for his signature.

OT Hunter Bivin Profile

Hunter Bivin, a 6-foot-7, 287-pound prospect from Apollo High School in Owensboro, Ky., has offers from Florida, Georgia, LSU, Miami, Michigan, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Penn State, South Carolina and Wisconsin.

Clemson was among the most recent to pull the trigger.

"I got it, like a week ago, tomorrow," Bivin told CUTigers on Thursday night.

At the time of his Clemson offer, Bivin was a bit preoccupied, so he's yet to speak with anyone Tigertown.

"They'd sent me a couple of pieces of mail, but no real heavy contact. They told coach Cooper, he's one of my coaches who does a lot of my recruiting. They told him and that's kind of the only contact," Bivin said. "My basketball team, we got beat in the state tournament. That's a big deal around here, so I kind of put recruiting off for a little while, to focus on basketball. I haven't really had a lot of contact with any coaches, so far."

On Wednesday night, Apollo lost 56-36 in the first-round of the Sweet 16 to George Rogers Clark. Now that the Apollo hoops season is over, Bivin can start to focus more on recruiting.

"We played at Rupp Arena and lost in the first-round, but it's a pretty big deal. The whole community was behind us. I just felt obligated to my teammates. I was all-in," he said.

Within the next couple of days, Bivin plans to start getting in touch with various coaches from around the country. His last visit was to Ohio State for the Jan. 31 junior day. He'll head to Notre Dame next weekend.

Bivin is still learning about Clemson.

"I know they had a really good season this year, that's about it. There was a guy that came from Owensboro that went to Clemson -- Justin Miller. That's about it. I don't know a whole lot about Clemson."

He does not have a timeline for a decision, but recently informed Scout.com, ""I'm not saying I'm ruling anybody out. But as of right now, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Michigan, Georgia, Auburn, Kentucky and Vanderbilt are my seven favorites.
