Clemson verbal commitment QB Cullen Harper can't wait to get up to Clemson for his official visit this weekend.

"Yeah, I can't wait," said Harper. "I've seen most of everything that Clemson has to offer. There are still a few things I haven't seen. I want to get to talk to the players and a lot of the recruits. I want to talk to some and see if I can talk them into coming to Clemson."

Harper has already been working the phones to see if he can convince Georgia receiver Aaron Kelly to join him as a Clemson Tiger. "I called Aaron Kelly on the phone the other night. We live about 30 minutes away. He's coming up this weekend. I also plan to call Mike McIntosh and La'Dontae Harris."

The 6-3, 200 pound prospect has recovered from his completely from his collarbone injury. "It's fine. I'm working out with my dad. We're throwing, working out and working on conditioning."

Harper traveled to the Georgia Dome to watch the Peach Bowl last week. "I went to the game. It wasn't really a surprise. I knew Coach Bowden would have Clemson ready to play. They came out and showed what they could really do."

The talented gunslinger can't wait to begin his college career next year. "I'm excited. They are looking good. They really came together this year. Clemson is starting to look like a really good team."

Harper is very firm with his commitment to the Tigers and he plans no other official visits. We will continue to keep you updated on this outstanding quarterback from Georgia, right up through signing day 2004.
