Massive OT impressed with Clemson

One of the top prospects in South Carolina's class of 2014 has already taken visits to Clemson and South Carolina this season.

Taylor hearn visited Clemson for the Ball State game and was in Columbia for South Carolina's games versus UAB, Missouri and Georgia.

"It was good. It was kind of a blow-out. I talked with coach [Marion] Hobby and [Robbie] Caldwell," Hearn said in an interview with CUTigers, when asked about the Clemson trip.

"They were just asking me how I've been, how my season is going, asking me if my grades were getting there. Stuff like that."

The 6-foot-5, 300-pound offensive tackle from Williston-Elko High School isn't done with his visits for this fall.

"I'll probably head up to Clemson again. I've gotten invited to a bunch of North Carolina and N.C. State games, so I'll probably go to one of them," he said.

For now, Clemson is his only offer. The Tigers came through with an offer about week before Hearn visited for the Dabo Swinney Football Camp.

"It kind of showed that they have a lot of confidence in me, that they really like me," Hearn said.

South Carolina, North Carolina or N.C. State could be next to offer.

"I get a good bit of mail from them," he said. Who leads?

"I'd have to say my top three are probably Clemson, Carolina and Alabama."

Several factors will be considered as Hearn moves further along into the recruiting process.

"Probably location, how far away it is from. What kind of academics they've got. And, probably, what kind of offense they run," he said. Top Stories
