"More Than I Expected"

Darius Gaither's visit to Death Valley exceeded his own expectations this weekend.

The 6-1, 200 pound speedster traveled to Death Valley to watch the Miami-Clemson game this weekend. "I came up with my dad and a couple other recruits. I loved it. It was a great game," Gaither told CUTigers.com in a recent interview. "The crowd was nice. It was much more than I expected."

The Palmetto standout had a chance to speak with several Clemson coaches during the visit. "I talked to Coach Scott and Coach Bowden. They said they were happy to see me," said Gaither.

The two-way standout is having a great season for Fairfield Central. "We are 3-1 this year. I have eight touchdowns, over 300 yard rushing and over 500 all-purpose yards."

When asked if he has any leaders in the recruiting process, Gaither responded, "No not yet. I am not ready to narrow things down."

Gaither also maintains that he will wait until after his senior season to set up his official visits. "I want to focus on my team right now. That's the biggest thing right now," said Gaither. "I'll set up my official visits after the season."

Where else will Gaither will visit in the coming weeks?

"I am probably going to see North Carolina State play this weekend," he said. "On October 1 I am going to see Tennessee play."

Other schools Gaither is considering include Maryland, Wake, South Carolina and Auburn. We will continue to keep you updated on this outstanding athlete from South Carolina, right up through signing day.
