Brian Linthicum, a 6-5, 230 pound tight end prospect is having an outstanding senior season for St. Anne's-Belfield School.

"It is going pretty good. We are 4-0 now. I have five touchdowns on the year. I am not sure about my stats for the year, but I know I had 130 yards receiving last game and 160 the game before that. I am getting a lot of touches," Linthicum told CUTigers.com in a recent interview.

Clemson tight ends coach Billy Napier went to see his future star tight end perform in person last week.

"Yeah coach Napier came and watched me play last Friday. He has talked about how they will use me. He said they may use me a little different than their current tight ends.

"I talk to the coaches every day or every other day. Everything sounds good down there."

Brian and his father will watch the Tigers live this weekend.

"My dad and I are doing down this weekend to see them play Wake Forest," he said. "My dad has been out here the last week watching me play."

The official visit timing is still up in the air for the Virginia standout.

"I am not sure when I will take my official visit yet. I may come down for another game or I may just take three days sometime and come down," Linthicum said.

The talented tight end has been impressed with the Tigers performances on the field this year.

"I think they are doing great," he said. "They have had a great start except for that Boston College game. As long as they take care of business against Georgia Tech and Virginia Tech they are in great shape."

In addition, Linthicum said there are no second thoughts with his verbal commitment, and he still plans to enroll at Clemson in January.

"I feel great about my decision," he said. "I can't wait to get to Clemson."
