Tigers Lead Big for Alabama WR?

Coach Dabo Swinney has already received a commitment from one talented receiver from Alabama, but another may be soon on the way.

6-foot-2, 205 pound wide receiver prospect Terrell Smith had an impressive game last week as Clay-Chalkville advanced to the second round of the playoffs. "I had seven catches for 112 yards. I also had 140 all purpose yards including two touchdowns," said Smith in a recent interview with CUTigers.com.

When asked who the current leader is, Smith responded, "It is probably Clemson right now. They look like they have a better future for me. I want to go where I can catch the ball."

The talented athlete plays both receiver and defensive back, but there is not a doubt where he would like to play at the collegiate level. "I prefer to play receiver," Smith said.

The official visit schedule is beginning to take shape for the prize recruit. "I am taking an official visit to Clemson on January 14. I am going to Ole Miss on January 21. I will also likely visit Tennessee, LSU and Auburn."

What will the prize recruit consider when deciding where to play next season? "I will look at the academics and long term future. I want to go where I can have a good chance to play on Sunday's."

Coach Swinney is hoping to convince the Alabama standout that Clemson is the place where he can develop into an NFL prospect. "Coach Swinney calls about every Tuesday or Wednesday. He sounds like a good guy."
