Coach Burns Visits OL

One of the top targets still on the board received an in-home visit from Clemson's Burton Burns.

The Tigers' 2006 recruiting class is filling up quickly, but several big names are still available headed into the heart of January. caught up with one of the biggest names still out there Tuesday evening, Orangeburg-Wilkinson's Jamal Medlin, to get the latest on the recruiting process.

"Coach Burns came by the house today. It went pretty good. He just told me he wanted me to fill that last slot for an offensive lineman. I I told him it was a good possibility," Medlin said.

The official visit tour, which once included visits to Maryland and N.C. State in early January, appears to be changing for the 6-6, 295 pound prospect.

"Right now, I am going to Clemson on January 13. Then I am going to South Carolina on January 27th and I will probably go to North Carolina State on January 20th. That will probably be it," Medlin said.

Medlin took a little bit of time to stay away from the recruiting process over the holidays, but he also has a good idea of when he'll be ready to make a decision. "I had a pretty good time (around Christmas and New Years). I just hung around and relaxed," he said. "I'm not ready to name a leader just yet, I'm neutral, but I'll probably have a decision ready by the middle of January."

Medlin is also already planning his workouts for the spring to get ready for the next level. "I am just going to hit the weight room. I am also going to try to do some running," he added.

The Orangeburg-Wilkinson standout, who is currently unrated by, will debut as a three-star prospect later this month.
