Tigers Working to Make the Cut

Huffman (AL) standout Andre Smith is close to narrowing his list of over 30 offers down to just a few favorites. The Clemson Tigers are working hard to make the cut and hoping that cousin Terrell Smith can give the Tigers an advantage. Find out the latest on this talented lineman in this recruiting update.

The 6-4, 315 pound prospect has offers from around the nation. "It's a lot. I have too many to count. It's well over 30." Smith told CUTigers.com in a recent interview.

When asked if he has any current favorites, Smith responded, "No sir, I will probably know them by the end of spring game. Our spring game is May 20. I hope to have a top five or top seven by then."

The Alabama standout has not had time to visit many schools this spring because of track. "I went to the A day at Alabama. That's really all I've been to this spring. I probably won't go anywhere else because of track season. I do the shot put and the discus."

Smith talks regularly with his cousin and future Tiger Terrell Smith. "We talk a lot. We go to the same church. We talk about twice a week. He says he is working hard to get ready for the next level," said Smith.

Coach Swinney is working hard to keep the Tigers on Andre's mind. "They send me a lot of mail. They send a lot about the camps. They send stuff about the history of Clemson football. I get a lot of mail, but I try to read all it."

How will the prize recruit narrow the list down later this spring? "I am looking for a great program. I want to find a place where they want you to come in and work hard. I want to find a great FCA program. I want a school with a good academic program and a desire to win," added Smith.
