Looking ahead to 2014: OLB

After inking a pair of outside linebackers in the 2013 haul, Clemson defensive coordinator Brent Venables hopes to add another in 2014.

Three of the top outside linebackers in the southeast list the Tigers in their lead groups.

Four-star Rashaan Evans, the No. 6 player at the position, is a few hours down I-85 from Clemson at Auburn High School [Ala.]. Clemson currently sits in his top four with Auburn, Alabama and UCLA.

A few hours up I-85 from Clemson is another four-star prospect, Dudley High School's [Greensboro, N.C.] Chris Register. The No. 9 player at the position holds offers from Clemson, Florida, Florida State, Ole Miss and Tennessee.

Register visited Tigertown earlier this month for Junior Day and listed Clemson, North Carolina and N.C. State as his favorites after he left.

Three-star Korie Rogers [Buford, Ga.] is down to Clemson and Georgia. The No. 23 outside linebacker in the country has also been offered by Florida, Penn State and East Carolina.

Richard Yeargin III, now of the University School in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla., visited Clemson in July. Then, he was at Chaminade Madonna, the same school attended by Clemson signee Adrian Baker.

Yeargin, who lists no favorites, claims offers from Clemson, Florida, Florida State, Tennessee and West Virginia.

Three-star Bryson Allen-Williams of Cedar Grove High School in Ellenwood, Ga. lists a Clemson offer, but he's likely to head to the Tigers' rival in Columbia.

Broken Arrow High School [Okla.] junior Gyasi Akem has been offered by Clemson. Missouri, Oklahoma and Oklahoma State have also offered.

Four-star prospects Denzel Ware and Christian Miller have an offer from Clemson, but they're committed to Kentucky and Florida, respectively.

The Clemson coaches continue evaluate several other prospects at the position, including Cayson Collins and Dillon Bates.
