Opelika, Alabama caught up with Opelika Coach Spence McKracken to get the latest on the decision of the talented defensive end. "He has not yet made his decision. He will have a decision by the basketball game tonight."

The Clemson Tigers made a late offer to cornerback Jeremy Gray that may have an impact on where McKissic ends up playing next season. Gray is a 6-3, 180 pound cornerback that committed to North Carolina State earlier this week.

Coach McKracken could not confirm the offer from Clemson, but he could confirm a late offer from Auburn. "I heard today that Clemson may have offered Jeremy but I can't confirm that. I can confirm that Auburn has now offered Jeremy. He committed to North Carolina State but he is now very confused. He just needs to spend about 6 hours figuring out where he wants to be next year."

Clemson commitment Adrian Kindred is hoping that the three teammates and good friends can play together next season. "Yes, Jeremy got an offer from Clemson. He is taking a look at Clemson. I know it is something that Jacquez is considering. Jacquez hasn't told me his decision yet."

When asked where he thought Jacquez would commit tonight, Kindred responded, "I think it will be Clemson."
