Decisions, Decisions for McElrathbey

Now that his commitment is behind him, Georgia native Ramon McElrathbey is working on some new tough decisions. The prize recruit is also spending some time trying to do what he can to help the Tigers finish strong with their 2005 recruiting class. <BR>

After committing to the Tigers on two occasions this year, there is no doubt where the 5-11, 180 pound prospect will play next year. "I'm firm with Clemson. I'm a Tiger," McElrathbey told Sunday evening.

Good friend James Davis took an unofficial visit to Clemson today, but McElrathbey had bigger plans.

"I couldn't go with him. I was shopping for my signing day outfit. James and I and a couple of others are going to have a big signing day party next weekend," said McElrathbey. "We are going to have all the players that signed from Mays, Douglass and some others.

"Right now, I'm having a hard time deciding which outfit to wear. I got two outfits today. One is a charcoal gray shirt with a blue tie. The other is a blue pinstripe suite. I may also go back to one of my older three-piece suits. It's a big decision. It will be the first suit I will have on since I sign my life away."

The prize recruit has also been working the phones hard to try to add a few stars to this year's class.

"I have been talking with Antonio Clay, Hivera Green and James McKinney the whole time. I talked with Clay yesterday actually. He said it's still a toss-up. That's what he told me. He said he is still firm with Oklahoma but I think there is a small crack for Clemson."

And what are the Tiger's chances with four-star defensive lineman James McKinney?

"He's confusing to me," said McElrathbey. "He sounded like I did at the beginning. I told him I committed twice. I know how he feels. If I had to say today it would be Michigan, but he's still trying to decide."
