Looking ahead to 2014: WR

In search of more playmakers to use out on the perimeter, the Clemson coaching staff has offers out to wide receiver prospects on each coast.

The vaunted receiving class of Sammy Watkins, Charone Peake, Martavis Bryant and Adam Humphries is entering its third-year at Clemson. With the likely departure of Watkins after the 2013 campaign -- and others to come, sooner rather than later -- a hearty restocking of the cupboard is in order.

After picking up signatures from at least two wide receivers earlier this month, at least three more could be added in 2014.

Clemson is in good position with a few four-star prospects.

Trevion Thompson, who's No. 4 in the country at the position, is a former Hillside [Durham] teammate of 2013 defensive back signee Korrin Wiggins. Clemson is among Thompson's favorites, along with Ohio State and North Carolina.

Clemson is tied for first with Ohio State for Sandy Creek's [Tyrone, Ga.] Demarre Kitt, the No. 27 wide receiver. On track to graduate early, Kitt is close friends with Clemson quarterback commitment Deshaun Watson, and the opportunity to play with him at the college level is very appealing to Kitt.

No. 3 overall at the position is Malachi Dupre, of John Curtis Christian in River Ridge, La. He recently told Scout.com that he's always been a fan of Clemson and its wide receivers.

Four stars Artavis Scott [No. 15] and Jamil Kamara [No. 16] have visited and received offers from Clemson.

Scott was in town earlier this month for Junior Day from East Lake High School [Tarpon Springs, Fla.] and gave the trip a good review. He remains wide-open with this recruitment.

Kamara travelled down from Norfolk, Va. last summer with several of his Lake Taylor teammates. He recently listed Clemson, North Carolina, Virginia, Michigan, LSU and Tennessee as schools that are standing out.

Three-star Jacob McCrary was in town from Miami's Coral Reef High School for Junior Day. Heading into the visit, he listed Clemson as the leader. And the Tigers continue to hold that top spot. A former Florida State commitment, McCrary will evaluate his options a little further before making a commitment.

Instate targets Blake Bone [Woodruff] and Gaffney's Shaquille Davidson each owns an offer from Clemson, but neither lists the Tigers in their lead group.

Several out-of-state prospects have been offered by Clemson, including Dallis Todd [California], Trey Quinn [Louisiana] and Florida's Moral Stephens and Ermon Lane.
