Ohio OL Hopes to Visit Palmetto State

This massive offensive lineman from Ohio says he's planning on visiting the Tigers.

The Clemson Tigers continue to hold in the top twelve schools for 6-5, 320 pound offensive line prospect Lee Tilley. "I still have the same top twelve. I am going to try to get to see as many of them as possible this summer," Tilley told CUTigers.com in a recent interview.

"When it's time to make a decision I want to be able to say I've seen the school. I will be looking for good facilities and good place to be."

Tilley has only made one trip this summer, but he's hoping to make a few more before the start of his senior season. "I have only been to Cincinnati so far, but I am going to try to go to some of the ones that are close next. Probably Virginia Tech and Tennessee."

What about Clemson?

"I will definitely try to get down to South Carolina this summer," says Tilley. "Two of my top schools are in South Carolina. I want to look at Clemson and South Carolina."

Tilley also plans to name his top schools after his upcoming visits. "I will try to narrow it down to a top five by the end of summer. Then I will take official visits to those five and see what happens."

Distance will not be a factor when Tilley decides where he wants to attend college. "It really doesn't matter," added the Ohio native. "Most of my offers are at least 5 hours away. So it will be a plan ride wherever I go probably."
