The Clemson offer went to Na'Ty Rodgers of McDonough High School in Pomfret, Md.

Caldwell serves as his primary recruiter for the Tigers.

"I've talked to coach Caldwell a couple of times on the phone and just Facebooked a little bit," Rodgers said.

What has Clemson's second-year assistant discussed with Rodgers?

"Really, he just wants me to get down there and get the taste for myself. I don't want to have anything in mind before I get there. I just want to get down there and check it out."

Rodgers is impressed with Caldwell.

"He seems like a straight-forward coach. He doesn't sugar-coat anything," Rodgers said.

Clemson will host him for a visit later this summer.

"It's still up in the air," he said. "I haven't set anything up yet for the summer, but I'm going to try to get down to Clemson."

What all does he know about the Tigers?

"They play fast. They've had some pretty good defensive players get drafted the last couple of years. They're producing guys that go to the NFL and they're always doing good things in the ACC."

Rodgers holds 21 offers, including Arkansas, Colorado, Florida, Maryland, Nebraska, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Pittsburgh, Rutgers, South Carolina, Tennesse, USC and West Virginia.

He has no favorites.

"I'm pretty wide-open. It's still on the rise. Once it hits its peak, I'm going to try to settle down, pick some schools out that I really want to go see and learn more about," Rodgers said. "I want to wait and try to go until signing day." Top Stories
