4-star linebacker Geno Hayes visited Clemson over the weekend and came away with the Tigers as his new leader. The prize recruit had even planned to make a decision sometime this week. Things have now may have slightly changed, and CUTigers.com has the latest.

The 6-1, 220 pound prospect had planned to make a decision by Thursday or Friday of this week after returning from his official visit to Clemson.

Where does he stand with that decision today? "I'm still going over the materials and things. I'm not going to make a decision this week," Hayes told CUTigers.com.

When asked if he will take his official visit to Florida State this weekend, Hayes responded, "I'm going to take the visit. After talking to my parents, they felt I should go ahead and take the visit. The main thing is that they want me to take all of my visits. I also feel like I owed it to them," said Hayes.

So as it stands now, Clemson and Florida State fans, not to mention Tennessee, may have to wait until signing day for this big commitment. "Right now, I plan to wait until next week to make a decision. It will probably be signing day," said the four-star linebacker.

And what are the chances that he will sign with Clemson on signing day? "The chances are very high," stated Hayes.

Hayes also got to meet with former Tiger and NFL linebacker Levon Kirkland during his official visit last weekend. "We had a great time. He talked about everything, like Clemson and the NFL. It was cool."

Clemson and Tennessee will make their final pitches when both head coaches visit on Friday.
