CUTigers.com caught up with the prize recruit, and we've got the latest on his decision timing and his visit to Tiger Town.

The 5-foot-11, 180 pound prospect traveled to Death Valley to see the Tigers stomp the Gamecocks this past weekend. "Wow, it was a wonderful game. It was very exciting," said McElrathbey in an interview with CUTigers.com.

The recruiting section of the Valley gave Ramon an indepth look at the fight. "We had great seats for the fight and could see a lot of what was going on. It was just a rivalry game."

When asked who is current leader is, McElrathbey responded, "I would say Clemson is my leader. I still feel highly about Clemson." Arkansas and Minnesota are trailing the Tigers for the services of the talented athlete.

What are the chances that McElrathbey will commit to the Tigers? "I would say about 70 percent," McElrathbey told CUTigers.com. And did the Atlanta standout think about committing this weekend? "It was a thought," stated McElrathbey.

The prize recruit plans to make his final decision over the next few weeks. "I will probably make my decision by the end of December. I can't play basketball until I commit. My basketball coach will not let me play until I commit. If I get hurt it wouldn't be right."

The Tigers and Razorbacks will get visits over the next few weeks. "I plan to visit Clemson on December 3. I will visit Arkansas after that."
