Chancellor Back from USF

Florida standout Demerick Chancellor took an official visit to South Florida this weekend. What are the odds that Chancellor will sign with the Tigers? CUTigers.com has all the answers in this recruiting update.

The 6-1, 185 pound prospect traveled to South Florida this weekend for his final official visit. "It was nice. I got to be around all my old teammates. A lot of them go to South Florida," Chancellor told CUTigers.com Sunday afternoon.

Some reports last week stated that the Miami Edison Senior standout had picked up an offer from Miami, but according to Chancellor, that is not correct. "No, I don't have an offer from Miami. South Florida was my last visit this weekend. I'm done with my visits."

When asked how firm his commitment currently is with the Tigers, Chancellor responded, "It's alright right now. I'm going to do a lot of thinking this week. I told myself I will do a lot of thinking this week to make sure Clemson is the right place for me."

Is the fact that the Tigers appear to have backed off his brother impacting his decision? "No, it's just me. I just want to make sure it's the best decision for me."

The Tar Heels appear to be plan B for the talented athlete. "I would go to North Carolina if I didn't go to Clemson. I didn't visit North Carolina."

What are the odds that he will sign with the Tigers on signing day? "It would be in the 80's," stated Demerick.

The Tigers will try to close the deal this week when several coaches visit Miami. "Coach Blackwell, Coach Burns and Coach Bowden will be coming down this week. I'm not sure when they are coming. I'm going to give him a call to see when they are coming down."

Chancellor also told CUTigers.com that he's done with his official visits, but that he will likely visit with Miami next weekend unofficially.
