Ogren Meets With Swinney & Spurrier

Alabama standout receiver Jeff Ogren had an in-home visit with both Clemson assistant coach Dabo Swinney earlier this week and South Carolina head coach Steve Spurrier.

Clemson assistant Dabo Swinney stopped by to see Jeff Ogren and his family Monday. "We talked about my official visit (to Clemson)," Ogren said of the visit. "He talked about what I will be doing this spring. He told me what kind of role I will have. We are going to hit the ground running quickly in January."

The 6-2, 185 pound prospect also had a visit from his future rival this week when South Carolina head coach Stever Spurrier visted American Christian Academy. "Coach Spurrier came by the school. He talked to me and Chris Smelley. He offered Chris on the spot," Ogren said.

"It was pretty cool talking to him. He is one of the greatest offensive coaches. I brought up the Clemson game and he didn't really want to talk about it. I told him we would have a good rivalry over the next few years."

The American Christian Academy standout would like to play against his teammate over the course of the next few years. "I hope he does go to South Carolina. It would be fun to compete against him. For Coach Spurrier to come down here and offer means a lot. He is very interested in South Carolina. I think he has narrowed it down to Louisville, South Carolina and Alabama," Ogren said.

And of course, as expected, Ogren will be enrolling at Clemson in just a few weeks. "I am on schedule to graduate on December 9. Then I will be taking my official visit on December 16. I will be bringing my mom and dad with me for the visit," he said.

"I'm not sure when I will sign my papers. It may be when I come up on January 8th or it may be on my official visit."
