GA LB Names Clemson No. 1

Akeem Dent is a sleeper prospect from Douglass HS in Atlanta, but the talented linebacker is drawing interest from schools all over and he's already picked up his first solid scholarship offer.

"I have an offer from Purdue and I'm also being recruited by Alabama, Mississippi State and Clemson. I've talked to Clemson, Purdue, Mississippi State and Alabama since September began," Akeem Dent said.

Three schools stand out to Dent right now. "My top school right now is Clemson. They are my number one school. I like Auburn and Alabama also."

Why are the Tigers on top?

"I went to their game Saturday and I got to meet all the coaches. They are real cool and I just like the atmosphere. I got to see James (Davis) play it's not too far from home."

What stands out about the other schools on his list?

Auburn: "Even though they didn't have a good game, they are still a really good team. I love their defense and the style they play."

Alabama: "That's another school I like. It wouldn't be too far from home and they have a nice team too."

Akeem is still looking at setting some official visits.

"I haven't set any visits yet but I'm going to Purdue in October I believe. I might also make Clemson's next home game." Top Stories
