LB Alonzo Higgins
6-3, 230, 4.6
Greenwood High School
Greenwood, South Carolina
One of the largest areas of need remaining for this year's recruiting class is at linebacker and one of the top linebackers in the Southeast is eager to be a Clemson Tiger.
Greenwood LB Alonzo Higgins saw his stock steadily rise in December with his impressive performance at the Shrine Bowl. "It was a good experience. I had a good time down there. I learned a lot and met some good people. I just wanted to impress the coaches," Higgins told CUTigers.com in a recent interview.
On the recruiting front, one team continues to stand out for the all-star linebacker. "Clemson is still my leader. They are still number one in my mind."
The 6-3, 230 pound prospect will be a sign and place candidate, and his family is already working on the details.
"My mom talked with the coaches last week. She called them. My cousin also called them. They told my mom about what they are going to do. We are going to wait and let everybody know on signing day. I want to keep a little secret."
"I'm going to be at Clemson, even if it is only for a few years. If I have to go to junior college I am going to work hard to get out as soon as I can. I will try to go to summer school so I can get to Clemson as soon as possible."
When asked what the chances are that he will sign with Clemson on signing day, Higgins responded, "I would say about 95 percent."
We will continue to keep you updated on this outstanding linebacker from South Carolina, right up through signing day 2005.
