Clemson stands out to four-star

San Antonio (Tex.) Roosevelt cornerback Arrion Springs has seen his number of offers double in the past few weeks.

It's been a busy few weeks for San Antonio (Tex.) Roosevelt cornerback Arrion Springs, who has recently seen his number of offers double with no signs of his recruitment slowing down.

"I had about seven, eight offers and now I'm up to twenty. The latest offer came from Notre Dame on Monday. It definitely surprised me. I was just in class and then they told me that I had an offer," he said.

The Irish's offer is one that intrigues the 6-foot, 190-pound athlete.

"It was really exciting," he said of picking up the offer. "They are a big time school and everybody knows about them. It's just really exciting."

Springs is mainly being recruited at both corner and nickel and says that of the recent offers, there are another two programs that are really standing out.

"Texas and Clemson," he said.

The Longhorns' program is one which with Springs is familiar, as the talented athlete has spent some time on the Forty Acres.

"[Defensive backs] Coach [Duane] Akina is great; he's one of the coolest coaches I've ever talked to. They have great facilities there; it's just a great place," he said.

Springs had positive remarks about the Tigers' program, as well.

"They have a family environment and [defensive backs] Coach [Mike] Reed is a good coach. The campus is very pretty; it has lots of trees and everything around it. It's a nice place to be," he said.

A few coaches have also been by Roosevelt to see the corner in action, three schools this week alone.

"Coach Akina came by on Wednesday, coaches from TCU were down on Tuesday, and then Memphis came the day before that," he said.

Springs is taking things slowly and isn't quite sure about his plans for the next few months.

"I might go to a showcase this weekend, but I might just watch. Other than that, I don't have any camps or anything planned right now," he said.
