A closer look at the All In Cookout

Dabo Swinney and the Clemson coaching staff will host the inaugural All-In cookout on Friday afternoon.

The cookout is scheduled to run from 4-8 on Friday. A number of the nation's top prospects and their families will mix and meet and mingle with the Tigers' coaches.

Among the headliners visiting is Good Counsel High School [Olney, Md.] senior cornerback Kendall Fuller. The five-star prospect is ranked as the No. 2 cornerback in the class of 2013.

Clemson and Virginia Tech are his finalists. Two of Fuller's brothers, currently play for the Hokies. His older brother played at Virginia Tech before going on to a career in the NFL.

This weekend, Fuller will be accompanied by his mom, who will be making her first visit to Tigertown.

Another big-name visitor this weekend is four-star defensive tackle Scott Pagano, the No. 27 defensive tackle in the country.

Pagano, who hails from Moanalua High School in Honolulu, recently announced his four finalists. Clemson, LSU, Alabama and Florida make up that group. LSU is believed to have the edge. His decision will be announced on Aug. 10.

Three other four-star prospects are expected to visit for the All In Cookout. One is Norcross [Ga.] running back Alvin Kamara, who visited Clemson earlier this month.

Clemson is among the schools under consideration by Kamara. Alabama and Georgia are also firmly in the mix. Scout.com ranks Kamara as the No. 16 running back in the class of 2013.

Another four-star running back, Tyshon Dye, is expected to be in for Friday's event. The No. 19 running back in the class of 2013 is down to Clemson, Auburn and Tennessee.

The Elbert County [Elberton, Ga.] senior was in Clemson last month during the Dabo Swinney Football Camp.

Dye originally planned to visit Auburn on Friday, but those Tigers recently accepted a commitment from four-star running back Jordan Wilkins.

Four-star wide receiver Demarcus Robinson continues to list Clemson at the top of his list of favorites. The Peach County High School [Fort Valley, Ga.] prospect also likes Georgia, Florida, Oregon and Oklahoma.

Robinson visited Clemson in June for camp.

Gulf Breeze [Fla.] senior Austin Droogsma is ranked the No. 45 offensive guard in 2013, according to Scout.com. He continues to list Clemson and Florida State as his leaders.

Droogsma visited Clemson in June during camp time, but spent a good bit of the time in his hotel room with an illness. Earlier this week, he visited Florida State, the school he grew up rooting for on Saturdays.

The top 2014 prospect scheduled to visit during the cookout is Bamberg-Ehrhardt athlete Kevin Crosby. A future four-star, Crosby told CUTigers that his five finalists are Clemson, South Carolina, Alabama, Auburn and Vanderbilt.
