One such prospect comes in Goose Creek High School 4-star offensive tackle Javon Kinlaw (Goose Creek, S.C.). Clemson is among Kinlaw's favorites as he approaches his final year of high school football. The talented lineman took some time to catch up with CUTigers this weekend on what he sees in each of the schools he likes.

Kinlaw has named South Carolina, Florida and Clemson as his favorites.

"For South Carolina, I like that it's closest to home. They're always in touch with me, and they reach out the most. With Florida, I've always liked their team since I was a little kid, and they have a great atmosphere. Clemson is a great program. I like coach Elliot a lot. I relate to him well," said Kinlaw.

The four-star prospect spoke of his commitment as something he would like to take some more time before making a decision. "I will probably commit after my senior season, probably closer to Signing Day," explained the junior.

Despite knowing which schools he favors the most right now, Kinlaw mentioned that he still has more to learn about the schools before making his final choice. "I will be at South Carolina on March 28th. I will be looking closely at the facilities to learn more about the program," continued Kinlaw.

Before a commitment is to come, Kinlaw is expecting big things for his senior season of high school. "I just want to become a better player overall. I want to improve my strength, my first step off the ball and my play-recognition," pointed out Kinlaw.

Kinlaw is 6-foot-7 and weighs 288 pounds. He is rated as the best offensive tackle in South Carolina and the 7th best offensive tackle in the country. Kinlaw comes in rated as the number 50 player in the nation according to Scout.
