Visit Pushed Back for SC OL

One of the top offensive linemen in the Palmetto state has pushed back an unofficial visit to Clemson by one week.

The unofficial visit tour has changed for 6-4, 260 pound offensive line prospect Mason Cloy.

"Tennessee is going to contact Mason tomorrow. Since we are going out that way for his cousin's graduation we will stop by Tennessee on the 25th. Then we will go to Vanderbilt for the rest of the day. We will go to Louisville on the 26th and then the graduation that night. We will go by Kentucky on the way home," Mason's father, Col. Cloy, told in a recent interview.

Mason and his father will then get to enjoy some fishing before taking an unofficial visit to Clemson. "We are going to go up to Clemson on the 28th. We are going to do some fishing and go to church up there," he said.

At the request of Clemson offensive line coach Brad Scott, the Clemson visit was rescheduled from the 22nd to the 29th. "Coach Scott asked us to move our Clemson visit to the 29th so that the players will be back. He wanted Mason to be able to mingle with the players. We will see Clemson on the 29th," he said.

"Then we will suspend visits for a few days so that I can move my things out of Fort Jackson."

The visits will pickup again with a trip to see Virginia Tech. "We will go to Virginia Tech on June 5th. Coach Beamer and Coach O'Cain will both be there that day.

"We may go to Georgia Tech on the 6th. I will be in Atlanta moving in so we will try to see Georgia Tech," Cloy's father said.

The visits will pickup again in North Carolina. "We will go by North Carolina State and North Carolina on July 7th. Coach Bunting called and asked him to come up to visit again with me. He wants Mason to play tight end."

Does Mason have a preference on the position he would like to play? "No, he doesn't have a preference to be honest. He likes playing tight end in high school because he knows he will get to play every down. In college it is different for tight ends," replied Col. Cloy.

"The coaches like his field intelligence. He would get to call the sets for the line if he plays center. That appeals to him."

The offer list will likely continue to grow over the summer for the Palmetto standout. "Louisville just offered. Auburn is evaluating his film right now. The offensive line coach at Miami is also reviewing the film," added Col. Cloy. Top Stories
