RB Mikell Lands-Davis Profile

Morris and Elliott were in Douglasville, Ga. to check up Mikell Lands-Davis, a three-star running back prospect.

Clemson offered Lands-Davis back in December. It was the first offer for the 5-foot-11, 203-pound junior. To date, it's his only offer.

"I like it a lot," Lands-Davis told CUTigers, when asked about Clemson.

"They spread the ball out a lot though. They'll throw it, but when the back gets it, you always have a chance to do something with it, so they spread them out. It's always good for a running back."

Elliott, who recruits that portion around perimeter of Atlanta, was in the area on Thursday checking on several Clemson targets, including Taj Griffin, Chuma Edoga and Julian Rochester, the trio from nearby McEachern High School.

Lands-Davis shares a close relationship with Elliott.

"He's a really cool guy," Lands-Davis said. "He relates to me. We both play basketball, he played basketball in high school, we always talk about that. He's really cool. He's always giving me motivation."

He added, "Every time we talk, it hasn't been about football, it's about life."

Morris was in contact with Lands-Davis prior to his stop by the school.

"He's said that he wanted me up there for a junior day," Lands-Davis said.

As a junior, he rushed for 2,384 yards [8.3 per carry] and scored a total of 32 touchdowns.
