Monday was the first day the Clemson coaches hit the road for the spring evaluation period and Tampa area athlete Ray Ray McCloud was among the prospects they saw first.

The Sickles High School junior was offered by the Tigers last summer after a strong performance at defensive back during the Dabo Swinney Football Camp.

Now, Morris and Scott have said McCloud could play some at slot receiver and running back, his preferred position.

McCloud caught up with CUTigers on Monday night. Among the topics covered was his third trip up to Clemson.

"It was good. I took my family up there. It was a fun time," he said.

The No. 46 ranked running back prospect added, "It was just for my family, for my mom and dad to get to know the coaches."

What was the message from the coaches?

"They just said for me to take my time with the process, no rush, [but] just make sure to know what they've got there as a school and what they can offer me."

While in the state, McCloud also stopped by Columbia to see South Carolina.

"It was good. We got to watch practice and got to go around campus and see the campus," he said.

McCloud, who lists offers from the big three in Florida, plus schools like Michigan, Notre Dame, Ohio State, South Carolina and Tennessee, among others.

Does he have any leaders?

"No, sir, I'm taking my time with it."

As a junior, McCloud scored a total of 28 touchdowns.
