Georgia game visitors

Some of the top prospects from the state of Georgia will be in Clemson on Saturday night for the kickoff of the 2013 college football season.

Many of those guys are committed to Clemson's 2014 signing class. A few others could be at some point down the road.

The current commitments include Deshaun Watson, Korie Rogers, Demarre Kitt, Adam Choice and Milan Richard. The non-committed Peach State prospects include Raekwon McMillan, D.J. Smith and Andrew Williams.

Non-committed guests from outside of the state of Georgia are Trevion Thompson, Donell Stanley, David Sharpe, Jefferie Gibson and Jalen Williams.

Almost all of the rest of Clemson's 2014 commitments will be there, too. Artavis Scott, C.J. Fuller, Alex Spence, Kendall Joseph, Cannon Smith, Taylor Hearn and Jae'lon Oglesby are confirmed as visitors.

Most of the guests for Saturday are from the 2015 class. Among the rising juniors are several five and four-star prospects. A majority of those guys have received an offer from Clemson.

Headlining the junior visitors are five-star offensive tackle Mitch Hyatt, five-star defensive tackle Tim Settle and five-star outside linebacker Ricky DeBerry.

Hyatt, who's from North Gwinnett, Ga., has visited Clemson several times. His uncle played for Danny Ford in the 80s and most considered the Tigers as the team to beat.

Like Hyatt, Settle [Stonewall Jackson High School in Manassas, Va.] is the country's No. 1 rated player at his position. Saturday will be his first visit to Clemson.

The No. 2 outside linebacker in the nation, DeBerry has visited several of the schools that have offered him, including Clemson. He's good friends with Sylvester Mayers, a 2016 athlete who's the son of a former Clemson player. Both are from Virginia.

Four-star running back Taj Griffin will visit with his McEachern High School [Powder Springs, Ga.] teammate Chuma Edoga. Also a four-star, Edoga is ranked as the No. 15 offensive tackle in the 2015 class. Griffin is the sixth-best running back.

Garrett Williams, the No. 8 tight end, is a four-star at The First Academy in Orlando, Fla. He'll be back in Clemson for the first-time since the Dabo Swinney Football Camp.

One of the top prospects in South Carolina for the 2015 haul is four-star outside linebacker Johnathan Sutton. The Swansea junior was one of the top performers at Swinney's camp earlier this summer.

Scheduled to visit from Charlotte's West Mecklenburg High School is four-star safety Van Smith. Scout.com lists him as the No. 16 prospect at his position.

Four-star quarterback Lorenzo Nunez will be back from Harrison High School in Kennesaw, Ga. His last trip to Clemson was for the All-In Cookout.

A four-star from North Carolina, Lincolnton's Darian Roseboro, is slated to be in town. He is the No. 18 defensive end in the country.

Another four-star North Carolina, Belmont's Tanner Muse, will visit. The South Point High School prospect is ranked as the No. 21 outside linebacker.

Yet another four-star from North Carolina will be on campus. Southern Guilford High School's running back Reggie Gallaspy. He camped at Clemson over the summer but didn't pick up an offer from the Tigers.

There are a couple of more North Carolina four-star prospects from the 2015 class who are scheduled to be in. Wake Forest running back Bryce Love and Butler quarterback Anthony Ratliff.

A number of other class of 2015 prospects with Clemson offers will be in town, including: running back J.K. Britt, athlete Kelly Bryant, cornerback Kaleb Chalmers, defensive back Mark Fields and offensive tackle Mason Veal.

The rest of the confirmed 2015 visitors are: wide receiver Markeyvious Adams, quarterback Logan Byrd, running back Nyheim Hines, jumbo athlete Harrison Moon, jumbo athlete William Richardson and defensive back Shaquon Wells. Clemson's two 2015 commitments, J.D. Davis and Judah Davis will visit, too.


Ben Cleveland
The class of 2016 visitors is headlined by offensive tackle Ben Cleveland. The Stephens County High School [Toccoa, Ga.] prospect has offers from Clemson, Florida, Georgia, South Carolina and Texas.

Whale Branch [Seabrook] defensive tackle is another 2016 guest with a Clemson offer. So is running back Antonio Williams, who's from North Stanly High School in New London, N.C. Delonte Moore, a wide receiver from Ballou High School in Washington D.C., will be in, too. He also has an offer from Clemson.

Other guests from the 2016 haul include: linebacker Will Ward, defensive back Marquis Hamilton and quarterback Josh White.

Visiting from Allendale-Fairfax with Ward are 2017 prospects Deon Priester and Jerome Polite.
