Looking ahead to 2014: OL

Clemson already has one offensive lineman committed to it 2014 signing class. Might there be room for one more?

Williston-Elko High School's Taylor Hearn committed to Clemson in early February. The 6-foot-5, 305-pound offensive tackle picked Clemson over an offer from North Carolina.

Scout.com rates Hearn as a three-star prospect and ranks him as the No. 71 offensive tackle in the country.

There are a couple of other instate offensive linemen that have an offer to join Hearn and the rest of the Clemson class.

Four-star guard Donell Stanley is the No. 1 overall prospect in the state and the No. 4 guard in the country. He has offers from several schools across the nation, including South Carolina, North Carolina and Alabama.

Stanley spent three days in Clemson last month during the Dabo Swinney Football Camp. For the Latta rising senior, South Carolina could be the school to beat.

Wando offensive tackle Nolan Kelleher picked up his offer from Clemson earlier this spring. Like Stanley, Kelleher is a four-star prospect. He's listed as the No. 29 offensive tackle in the country.

Clemson could be the team to beat but there are several other programs jockeying for his commitment, including Georgia and South Carolina.

Another four-star, David Sharpe, has a Clemson offer. The No. 17 offensive tackle in the country picked up a Clemson offer during the spring evaluation period. Not long after he received the offer, Sharpe visited Clemson from Jacksonville's Providence High School.

Alabama, Florida, Florida State, Georgia, Miami Ohio State, Virginia Tech and West Virginia have also offered.

Three-star guard Justin Falcinelli [Middletown, Md.] made his second visit to Clemson when he joined teammate Ricky Leonard in Clemson for the Dabo Swinney Football Camp. If Leonard commits to Florida State later this month, then look for Falcinelli to make Maryland his future home.
