The Clemson Tigers were the first to offer the standout receiver but expect that offer list to change over the next few weeks. "Clemson is my only offer right now. Michigan, Tennessee, Oklahoma, LSU and Iowa are all showing a lot of interest," Huggins told CUTigers.com in a recent interview.

Huggins and his talented teammates Hivera Green and Bobby Wallace traveled to Clemson earlier this month to enjoy Junior Day.

"It was good. I was just trying to see what it would be like if I go there. I wanted to see what practice was like." Huggins and Green will attend Junior Day at Tennessee this weekend.

The talented prospect would like to play with Green at the collegiate level. "Me and Hivera we want to go to the same school. We decided we want to go to the same school."

When asked if he has any early favorites, Huggins responded, "Not now. I just want to see who will offer me first."

Coach Swinney is working hard to keep the Tigers on his mind. "Coach Swinney is my recruiter with Clemson. He sends me a lot of mail. Clemson is recruiting me the hardest right now."

Huggins is working hard in the offseason to prepare for his senior campaign. "I am running track. I am also catching the ball. We throw in the gym or outside depending on the weather."
