Junior Day No. 2

On Saturday, the Clemson football staff will roll out the red carpet for its second Junior Day of the year. Like February's event, there will be plenty of big names on campus.

Headlining the group is four-star offensive tackle Jake Fruhmorgen, who was on campus for last month's Elite Junior Day. Ranked by Scout.com as the No. 9 offensive tackle in the class of 2014, Fruhmorgen [Tampa-Plant] gave the trip a very positive review.

"There wasn't just one thing one thing I liked about it. I just got a good vibe as I walked through the campus. You can get a feel sometimes when you go places. I had a great feeling just walking through there, and it was just comfortable. We're going back up there soon, to check it out again," he told CUTigers.

Before the interview was over, Fruhmorgen said he would be back in March to watch spring practice. He'll get a chance to do just that. The 6-foot-5, 265-pound prospect is scheduled to be in town Saturday-Monday.

Clemson and Florida are looking like the primary contenders for Fruhmorgen, who plans to commit before the summer. His most recent college visit was to Florida.

Fruhmorgen won't be the only four-star offensive tackle on campus. Ben Cleveland, the sophomore from Stephens County High School in Toccoa, Ga., is set to return to Clemson for the first-time since his appearance in Death Valley for the Georgia game. Cleveland has offers from Clemson, Georgia, Florida, South Carolina and Texas.

Fruhmorgen won't be the only three-day, out of state visitor. Travelling all the way from DeSoto High School will be junior wide receiver Kevin Thomas and junior offensive guard Kendall Jennings.

Thomas, a three-star, is ranked by Scout.com as the No. 54 wide receiver in the class of 2015. Clemson and Indiana have offered. Jennings is unranked and he does not have any offers. At 6-foot, 260, he could find himself at defensive tackle when he gets to the next level.

Several other wide receivers with Clemson offers are set to visit.


It's looking like an instate battle for Bryan Edwards.
One of the most recent wide receivers to receive an offer from the Tigers is Jayson Stanley of Creekside High School in Fairburn, Ga. The three-star junior also has offers from Alabama, Auburn and Georgia.

Also a three-star, Juval Mollette of Randleman High School in North Carolina holds offers from the major instate players. Ohio State and Virginia Tech are also on the offer sheet. Saturday's trip to Tigertown will be his first since his stop for the Florida State game.

Assuming his travel plans don't fall through, three-star Keyston Fuller will make the trip up from Griffin, Ga. The 6-foot, 180-pound prospect also has offers from UNC, Georgia Tech and Texas A&M.

A pair of 2016 wide receivers -- Divine Deablo and Bryan Edwards will visit. Deablo, who's from Mount Tabor High School in Winston-Salem, N.C., has the instate offers, plus Clemson and West Virginia. Clemson and South Carolina continue to battle for Edwards, who's from Conway.

Austin Bryant, a four-star defensive end from Thomas County Central [Thomasville, Ga.] will return to Clemson for his first visit since the Florida State game. Clemson, Georgia and Florida State are looking like the top contenders for the No. 26 ranked defensive end in the class of 2015.

Three-star cornerback J.K. Britt will make the drive up from Newnan, Ga. The 2015 prospect has offers from Clemson, Duke, Georgia Tech, Ole Miss, Nebraska, Tennessee and Virginia Tech.

In the past, Clemson has had some pretty good luck with defensive ends from Bamberg-Ehrhardt High School. Now, they're after 2015 three-star LaSamuel Davis, who claims offers from Clemson, Florida, Southern Cal, Tennessee, UCLA and Virginia Tech.

Several other prospects without a Clemson offer will be in town: 2015 safety Adonis Alexander, Adonis Alexander, 2016 OLB Tre Lamar, 2015 RB Rocky Reid, 2015 DL Justin Young, 2015 WR J.J. Arcega-Whiteside and 2016 WR Kyle Davis.

Two instate offered prospects could visit on Saturday: 2015 LB Johnathan Sutton and 2015 DE Rasool Clemons.

Several other prospects will be on campus at various times through the month of March, including Chazz Surratt [March 14], Trevon Hill [March 15] and Tucker Israel [March 21].
