Quentin Cotton, one of the top linebackers in North Carolina, continues to list Clemson among his favorites, and he has already scheduled his official visit with the Tigers.

The offer list for Cotton currently includes Clemson, Maryland, North Carolina, Duke, Wake Forest and East Carolina. "My top 4 schools right now would be Wake Forest, Maryland, Clemson and East Carolina," stated Cotton.

North Carolina State has not offered yet but they would join his favorites if they were to offer. "I've been getting a lot of mail from State but they haven't offered yet. If they offer they will be up there with the others."

Cotton is having an impressive senior season although Glenn High School is only 3-2. Against Parkland earlier this season he had 13 tackles, a fumble recovery and an interception.

The 6-4, 200 pound prospect has already set his official visit with Clemson. "I will be taking my official visit to Clemson on January 9th, 10th and 11th," stated Cotton.

Coach O'Cain is keeping in close contact with the Kernersville star linebacker. "He has been calling every week. He just tells me to keep my grades up. He says they are going to recruit me harder and harder as the season goes along."

Cotton watched North Carolina battle Florida State earlier this season and Wake Forest battle North Carolina State. The talented prospect plans to see some other games later this fall but he is not sure of the schedule yet.

Don't expect an early commitment from the prize recruit. "I will probably take my official visits first," stated Cotton.
