Looking ahead to 2014: WR

In the world of recruiting when things can turn on a dime, four months can just about seem like an eternity.

Four months ago, Clemson was still in search of its first wide receiver commitment for 2014. Since then, the Tigers' coaches have added a commitment from four-star Demarre Kitt.

Four months ago in CUTigers' first wide receiver installment of the Looking ahead to 2014 series, it was hard to imagine that Clemson would be a viable option for Trey Quinn.

Quinn, a four-star prospect and the No. 35 wide receiver in the country, was offered by Clemson in January. In that first wide receiver feature, Quinn was mentioned in the final line of the story as one of several out-of-state prospects with a Clemson offer.

Two Tigertown visits later, Clemson is very much in play for Quinn, who attends Barbe High School in Louisiana.

His first Clemson trip was in April for the Orange and White spring game. Accompanied by his grandmother on that trip, Quinn was joined by his mother, father and younger brother earlier this month for the second session of the Dabo Swinney Football Camp.

Along with Clemson, Quinn is also considering the in-state option, LSU, plus Ole Miss and Auburn. A decision could be made as early as July.

There are at least two other names to keep an eye on for the final one or two wide receiver spots in the 2014 Clemson class. Both were in town earlier this month for Dabo Camp and both are four-star prospects.

Trevion Thompson, the No. 8 wide receiver in the country, spent an afternoon in Clemson during Dabo Camp, but didn't participate in any of the camp drills. The Hillside High School [Durham, N.C.] rising senior will announce his top-five on Friday. While it's not a guarantee, it's a safe bet that Clemson will make that cut.

Other schools that could also find a place on that list are North Carolina, Ohio State and Florida. Thompson won't make his commitment until later on in the process, probably signing day.

Artavis Scott, the No. 23 wide receiver in the class, spent three days in Clemson for Dabo Camp. A rising senior at East Lake High School in Tarpon Springs, Fla., Scott could announce his decision during the Army All-American game. Right now, Clemson, Florida, Michigan and UCF are in the mix for Scott.

Five-star Malachi Dupre is another name to keep an eye on this summer, particularly if he visits from Louisiana.
