Not long after three-star defensive tackle Cory Thomas made his pledge to Tennessee in November, he expressed interest in taking other official visits, Clemson being one of them. After this weekend's official, he'll head to Mississippi State next weekend. He'll round out the official visit docket with a stop in Knoxville to see Tennessee.
The McAdory High School [McCalla, Ala.] is ranked as the No. 52 defensive tackle in the class of 2014. Thomas last visited Tigertown for the Florida State game.
"I would say the atmosphere, before the game started," Thomas told CUTigers, after the visit. "Basically, before I came, everybody was telling me that Clemson, the atmosphere was going to be crazy and the fan base was too. When I got to see it for myself first-hand, it was like, wow."
Trevion Thompson visited Clemson during the fall for the Georgia and Florida State games. He's been on campus several times since appearing on the Clemson radar several years ago. The Hillside High School [Durham, N.C.] senior is a former teammate of Clemson defensive back Korrin Wiggins, who flipped from UNC to Clemson last signing day.
This will be official visit No. 3 for Thompson, a four-star and the No. 15 ranked wide receiver in the class of 2014. He officially visited N.C. State and Ohio State in the fall. He'll take an official visit to West Virginia next weekend. The fifth and final official could be to UNC, but that hasn't been finalized.
Immediately after the visit to N.C. State, the Wolfpack were said to be in prime position for his signature. Clemson could position itself as the top dog following this visit. But if Thompson opts to play college ball with his teammate, Donte Thomas-Williams, West Virginia or N.C. State could be the route. The Mountaineers are said to lead for the four-star running back.
The following Clemson commitments are also scheduled to be in town this weekend:
Next weekend, they greyshirt candidates will be in town. It's still not official, but Jalen Williams could join the 2014 class. The brothers, J.D. Davis and Judah Davis, have already graduated from Daniel High School. They're currently enrolled at Tri-County Tech and will be Clemson students at this time next year.
Preferred walk-on candidate Hunter Renfrow is also set to be in town for an official visit that weekend. The wide receiver from Socastee High School will take his official visit to Appalachian State this weekend. A lifelong Tiger fan, Renfrow has a brother and a sister who are currently students at Clemson.
For the final official visit weekend before signing day, four-star defensive end Andrew Williams will visit Clemson. He's schedule to trip to Auburn this coming weekend and will head to Ole Miss next weekend.
