4-Star WR Finalizing Clemson Visit

This four-star receiver from Alabama will be narrowing his list of favorites down over the next few weeks. Will an upcoming visit to Death Valley help the Tigers make the cut? CUTigers.com has the latest on this talented receiver in this recruiting update.

6-2, 195 pound wide receiver prospect Tim Hawthorne did not play this week for Homewood High because of an injury. "I had a strained hamstring so I didn't play. I should be good for next week. We still won 38-7," Hawthorne told CUTigers.com in a recent interview.

On the season, the nation's eighth best receiver according to Scout.com is having an outstanding year. "I have 32 catches for 425 yards this year. I also have five touchdowns," Hawthorne said.

When asked about his current favorites in the recruiting process, Hawthorne responded, "I don't have any yet. I have about nine schools in the SEC and four in ACC including Clemson. I have one or two others. It is a good chance that by early November I will narrow it down to eight or 10," he said.

"I am going to wait until after the season to take the official visits. I may try to squeeze in one or two before the season is over, but I'm not sure."

Clemson will get an unofficial visit from the star receiver in November. "I will be up for the Florida State game. It will be my first time up there this year. I did go up there before for a basketball camp. That was before my junior year. I am not playing basketball any more. I am concentrating on football," stated Hawthorne.

The prize recruit does not know which schools will get official visits yet, but he does have in his mind what factors will play the biggest role in his decision.

"First thing I will be looking at is where can I get playing time? Second I will look at which school gives me the best chance of making the NFL. Third I will look at the relationship with the players and the coaches," he added.
