Clemson Recruiting Update

Updated information on Michael Hinton, Will Proctor, Mario Raley, Troy Williamson, Gerald McCloud, Reggie Merrieweather, Moe Thompson, and Travis Anderson. Highlights include updated game stats, recent visits taken, future visits planned, and current favorites.

WR Travis Anderson (Spartanburg) had 2 rushes for 45 yards and 1 reception for 21 yards in Byrnes High School's 17-7 win over Gaffney.

Stratford's (Charleston) Big TE Moe Thompson had 4 receptions for 34 yards and 1 touchdown. Sources close to Moe have indicated that he is a strong lean to North Carolina at this point.

North Augusta's RB Reggie Merrieweather, rushed for 154 yards on 36 carries and will probably break the 1,000 yard mark his next game. The Tigers remain Merriweather's favorite with offers from Notre Dame and Florida on the table.

WR Troy Williamson had another strong performance with a 90 yard touchdown run, a 20 yard pass touchdown catch, and a 73 yard kickoff return. He finished with 120 yards rushing on seven carries to go along with his touchdown reception and kickoff return. Silver Bluff High School has now won 20 games in a row and Troy Williamson has dominated early on in the season.

Williamson received is latest offer from Georgia Tech last week and has now decided on two official visits. One for Clemson on January 12, and the other to South Carolina.

Clemson verbal commitment RB Gerald McCloud (6-2, 185) of Arlington Country Day, (Jacksonville FL) rushed for 142 yards on only 17 carries in a 31-30 heartbreaking loss.

WR Mario Raley lit up rival Butler High School with eight receptions for 139 yards two weeks ago. Clemson, Florida State, Georgia, Tennessee, and Virginia Tech are all still his favorites.

Raley is anticipating setting up all of his visits sometime within the next 4 weeks. He made an unofficial visit to the North Carolina-Florida State game this past weekend.

DB Michael Hinton caught a 27 yard touchdown pass and a recovered a fumble in Cummings High School's 41-0 romp over Williams. Hinton, if you recall, likes the Tigers over Ohio and East Carolina. The bigger schools have just started to seriously pursue this kid.

Finally, Clemson verbal commitment QB Will Proctor has started off strong again this season. Proctor has led Trinity Prep to a 3-1 record in directing his offense to over 30 points a game, including a 57 point explosion the first game of the season in which he accounted for 3 touchdowns.
