Saturday Morning Recruiting Quick Hits

Some quick hits regarding the first night of the big recruiting weekend at Clemson. Including some comments about Tribble Reese, Cory Lambert, and Tennessee verbal commitment Sinclair Cannon, who is being hosted by Sergio Gilliam.

* Many the players spent a good bit of time out last night "seeing the town" in Clemson. Charlie Whitehurst is hosting Tribble Reese this weekend and the two quarterbacks appear to be having a great time. "It went real well," said Reese of the first evening of activities.

"We had a nice dinner and then we went over and got some desert at Coach Bowden's house. We are now at the Sigma Nu house. It's awesome. It couldn't be any better. I was with Charlie and an offensive lineman. We're having a great time. Things couldn't be any better. It couldn't be any more fun."

* According to several players on the team, Cory Lambert appears to be very excited about getting up to Clemson, as he talked about this fall a good bit during the evening. Lambert is being hosted by William Henry.

* There has also been talk of the possibility of Sinclair Cannon giving the Tigers some serious consideration. Sinclair, a current Tennessee verbal commitment, is being hosted by former Greer teammate Sergio Gilliam.

Sinclair was quoted as saying at one point during the evening that "he didn't know he could have this much fun at Clemson." Cannon was reported to be having the best time of any of the prospects.

For those that don't think that Sinclair is an important recruit in the eyes of the Tennessee Volunteers, keep in mind that head coach Phil Fulmer is the featured speaker at the Greer High School football banquet.

* Clemson verbal commitment Courtney Vincent has been as happy as ever with his choice to come to Clemson, and he has thoroughly enjoyed his first night in Tiger Town. Vincent is working current Minnesota verbal commitment Leland Jones fairly hard, along with current Tiger linebacker LeRoy Hill.

* Jad Dean continues to be one of the Tigers top recruiters on the team. A source told us that he was re-iterating to a lot of the prospects last night that the Tigers had the chance to be a top 10 team next year, and will be highly ranked in the preseason polls.

* After breakfast, which was scheduled to begin around 8:30 this morning, the recruits are scheduled to visit Vickery Hall and tour the football facilities (weight rooms, training rooms, equipment rooms). Lunch will then be served at the Tiger Den at Memorial Stadium around 12:45.

* Later this afternoon, the prospects will tour the Clemson campus before heading over to the Madren Center for the Football Team Awards Banquet, around 6:30. Top Stories
