This past weekend the 6-foot-3 205-pound gunslinger visited Clemson for the Tigers' Spring Game.

"It went well," stated Crompton who will finish his spring game slate this weekend at Tennessee. "We just went up there and met with Coach (Mike) O'Cain and Coach (Tommy) Bowden and watched the spring game. Coach O'Cain was just talking about the quarterback situation, and Coach Bowden was just talking about life in general."

Since Crompton's travels have had him visit Clemson's campus before, the All-Conference selection used the opportunity to digest the Tigers' spread offense, which utilizes three-receiver sets.

"It's a pretty cool offense," remarked Crompton. "I like that its spread out, shot gun the whole time. It's very NFL-like."

The Volunteers still lead for Crompton's services, but hosts of schools are nipping at their heels in hopes to push the Vols off the mountain.

"Tennessee is still in the lead. After Tennessee, there is no particular order, its Clemson, LSU, Virginia is in there, Carolina is in there, Notre Dame, Michigan, Arizona State, USC a little bit, they have called the school."

Crompton has yet to finalize his decision and maintains that once it feels right, he will pull the trigger. We will continue to keep you updated on Johnathan Crompton, right up through signing day 2005.
