Fork Union, Virginia updated you on Fork Union wide receiver Derrick McPhearson earlier today, before his exit meeting with Tommy Bowden.

Now, with that meeting finished, we bring you a second update on his recruitment to Clemson.

McPhearson gave us a more extended version of his first interview the second time around.

"My visit was really good. I talked for about 15 minutes with Coach Bowden earlier today. He is going to come this Friday and then go see my parents," said McPhearson.

McPhearson, who was hosted by Chris Clemmons, said that he really liked the campus and the facilities at Clemson.

"The campus was great, so were the facilities. I was pretty much taken back by everything.

"You know, I didn't really know what to expect, but after the visit it opened my eyes a whole lot," said the Florida commitment. "They made it clear that I would have a chance to play. That is a big plus."

McPhearson also continues to talk extensively to teammates Philip Merling and Durrell Barry, who are both actively recruiting McPhearson to Clemson.

We will continue to keep you updated on this developing situation, right up through signing day. Top Stories
