Saturday's scrimmage in Death Valley saw several recruits from the upstate area in attendance, including Greenville High School's Jordan Sorrells and Nathan Pepper.

Pepper, a defensive lineman, and Sorrells, a quarterback, have yet to receive an offer from Clemson, but their teammate, RB Travil Jamison has. Jamison was not on the sidelines Saturday.

Greenville High School runs the same fast paced offense as Clemson, and Sorrells has put up huge numbers as the Red Raiders' signal caller.

As a junior, Sorrells threw for 2,959 yards and 35 touchdowns with only 10 interceptions.

On the recruiting front, Sorrells and Pepper are already receiving significant interest from several schools around the southeast, and both have scholarship offers from Kentucky.

Both players were offered scholarships at UK's Junior Day last month.

"You won't find any better kids at this school then Travil, Nathan, and Jordan," said Greenville head coach Larry Frost in an interview last month. "And I'm serious when I say that. They are both just good kids."

The Tigers signed two prospects from Greenville High in the 2004 class- LB Alex Pearson and OL Cory Lambert.

In 2005, they'll do their best to sign as many as three more.
