North Carolina WR Stills Favors Clemson

"I like Clemson because I went to the North Carolina game and the atmosphere there on gameday is just unreal. I love how they all get into it and everybody loves them. I also love how they run the no huddle offense and spread the ball around," said Long.

WR Scott Long (6-3, 195, 4.45) of Southport South Brunswick (N.C.) missed all but one game as a junior with a torn left ACL. He had surgery on October 30. "I'm stil doing rehab now three days a week and my release date is June 1," said Long.

Despite missing most of the season, Scott has an offer from Louisville. He favors Clemson slightly over North Carolina St, Auburn, Ole Miss and Louisville. Scott's already attend JR Days as both Clemson and North Carolina State and says he plans to go to both their summer camps. "They said they need to see me at camp and see how my knee looks before they offer.

"I like Clemson because I went to the North Carolina game and the atmosphere there on gameday is just unreal. I love how they all get into it and everybody loves them. I also love how they run the no huddle offense and spread the ball around."

Scott says he grew up watching North Carolina, but does not have the Tar Heels in his top five. "Our family has always been Tar Heel fans, so I just kind of grew up watching them. But they've been struggling lately and my top five are just more impressive right now.

"I like how North Carolina State is moving up in the ACC and it just seems like they are getting it done. They are becoming a powerhouse. Also, it's only two and a half hours away, but that's not a big factor. I want to go somewhere it's all about football."

Scott benches 275, squats 420 and has a vertical of 36.

"I have good speed and power. I'm real aggressive and have great hands. I concentrate well and run crisp routes. I'd like to get my bench up and spend more time in the weight room. I'm also gonna have to step up in the leader role as a senior."
