The Official Visit Breakdown

The Tigers received four verbal commitments this weekend. DB Larry Williams, OL Dustin Fry, DB Jeff Francouer, and DL Brad Lee have already said they'll be in Clemson uniforms next fall. We've got quotes, stats, and information on all the players in Clemson this past weekend.

DL Brad Lee has said that he will commit to the Tigers on January 21. Lee chose the Tigers over East Carolina and several smaller schools.

"I will officially commit on the 21st, the anniversary of my grandfather's 50th wedding anniversary," Lee said. "He always wanted me to go to Clemson."

Lee is 6-4 265 pounds and runs a 4.9 forty. He also benches 300, powercleans 295 and squats 400.

"Clemson has great academics. Their coaches are spiritual, and I will have a chance to play as a freshman. The campus is great, it's huge. The players said the coaches really care and they treat you like a son."

Lee said he still plans to take his other visits. He plans to go to Middle Tennessee (1-18), Georgia Southern (1-25), Tennessee (2-1), and Auburn. All have offered according to Lee.

Lake View LB Anthony Waters is still firm in his commitment to Clemson as he was hosted by wide receiver Derrick Hamilton this past weekend. Waters only other official visit will be to South Carolina next weekend.

Randy Jackson is now firm in his commitment to Clemson, he has cancelled his trip to Auburn scheduled for next weekend.

Fred Bennett did not make the trip to Clemson this weekend because he was unable to arrange transportation from Manning.

Apparently he has cancelled his visit to South Carolina next weekend so that he may visit the Tigers.

Jeff Francouer has now commited to the Tigers. He will play for both Tommy Bowden's football team and Jack Leggett's baseball squad. He chose Clemson over Georgia Tech, North Carolina, and Ole Miss. Francouer has cancelled his upcoming visits to Ole Miss and UNC.

The last obstacle with Jeff Francouer will be the Major League Baseball draft. Experts agree that he'll likely go in the first two rounds, however a commitment to college may allow him to slip in the draft and stay in school.

"I am a Clemson Tiger and very excited about it," said free safety Jeff Francouer.

"They have offered and it is just something about Clemson. They have been with me the whole time and everything they do is first class. I very comfortable there and I think I can contribute immediately. I also met with the baseball coaches. I will play baseball there as of now and you know how important that is to me."

Chansi Stuckey has set up in home visits from Florida State and Clemson this week. He is reportedly a hard lean to Clemson at this point in the recruiting process and is close to giving his verbal commitment to the Tigers.

"I visited Clemson this weekend instead of Tennessee," said quarterback Chansi Stuckey. "I like the small town, the coaches and players. They know how to treat you. They are my leader and I am very close to committing to them."

Stuckey is from Warner Robins, Georgia. He has scheduled a mid-week visit to Auburn (1-21). He will visit Tennessee (1-25) and re-schedule a visit to Florida State.

Dustin Fry has also committed to Clemson. "I had a good visit and committed," said Fry. "I like the school, the academics and Vickery Hall," Fry said. "I also like the coaches. I just felt like it was the best place for me."

Fry will play guard for the Tigers. "I have a chance to play as a true freshman."

Fry says he is done with his official visits. He had offers from Maryland, North Carolina, Wake Forest and South Carolina.

Larry Williams has now commited to Clemson.

"I just committed to Clemson," said cornerback Larry Williams. "It is just a very good situation for me there. I can get some early playing time. I am scheduled to visit Miami (1-18) and Georgia (1-25) but I will probably cancel those visits."

Williams, from Tallahassee (Fla.) Lincoln High School, had 137 tackles and 3 interceptions this season.

Hannah-Pamplico LB Cory Groover also visited Clemson this past weekend. Groover, a Clemson verbal commitment since last February will not take any more official visits.

We had a chance to speak with Hannah-Pamplico Heach Coach Stan Drawdy this past week concerning Groover qualifying status.

"Cory is at Clemson this weekend on his official visit. We should have a clearer picture after he returns. He is still working very hard to meet the qualificiations. Right now he is still borderline."

WR/RB Gerald McCloud has also indicated that he will remain with his first choice, the Clemson Tigers. Gerald committed to the Tigers back in July. He visited South Carolina several weeks ago but now has admitted that he will not be looking at any other schools. Eric Sampson hosted Gerald this weekend in Clemson.

QB Will Proctor is also firm with his commitment to Clemson. Mark Jetton hosted him this weekend and Will had the chance to sit down with Coach O'Cain and Coach Bowden on two occasions to discuss what they expect of him entering next year.
