Copeland Could Commit Soon

Columbia-South (FL) running back Andre Copeland has a clear leader, and could commit this weekend. It doesn't take much to figure out that Copeland could very well be wearing orange next season.

The Clemson Tigers are looking to add at least one running back in the 2004 class, and by all accounts, Florida native Andre Copeland fits the bill.

Copeland has been a Clemson lean for quite some time, primarily because of the recruiting efforts of assistant coach Dabo Swinney.

"I am definitely leaning towards Clemson right now," said the 5-foot-6, 190 pounder. "I am taking my visit there on Friday."

Does Copeland plan on definitely committing?

"No sir, it depends on what I see. From what hear, its small like Lake City, and I like that idea. There is probably a 60 percent chance I will commit.

"I still have Syracuse and South Florida. I go to Syracuse next weekend (1/16) and South Florida the weekend after that (1/23). Even if I commit, I probably will take my other visits."

The senior running back ran the ball 161 times for over 1670 yards and 22 touchdowns. We will continue to keep you updated on Andre Copeland, right up through signing day.

Editor's Note
Copeland is one of two targets on the board at running back, along with North Carolina native Albert Ashcraft. Look for one of these talented running backs to pull the trigger on a verbal commitment at some point this weekend.
