Broome standout WR/DB Markish Jones had planned to take a few more visits before announcing a verbal commitment, but now it appears those plans have now changed.

In an interview with CUTigers.com Tuesday evening, Jones admitted he's leaning towards pulling the trigger at some point in the next two weeks.

"I am getting real close. It is going to be sooner than I thought. Right now I am leaning hard towards Clemson," Jones said. "Right now I am going to commit sometime in the next couple of weeks."

The two-way standout hopes to see the Tigers face off with Temple Thursday night in Charlotte.

"I talk with coach Blackwell all the time," he said. "I am probably going to call him tonight. I am going to try to go to the game in Charlotte Thursday."

Jones will definitely be back in Death Valley for the Georgia Tech game and that is when he may pull the trigger on a commitment.

What are the chances that he will commit during that visit?

"I would say it is probably 60 or 70%," stated Jones.

Now standing at 5-1 on the season, Jones said he's also been very impressed with what Clemson has shown him on the field.

"They have been real impressive especially with all of the injuries," he said. "Coach Blackwell told me they could have used me this year with the injuries to the receivers."

Opposing defenses continue to double and triple team the talented receiver to keep the ball out of his hands.

"This week I did most of my work on defense," Jones added. "I had six tackles and three pass breakups. On offense I got triple teamed. We are 5-2 this year."
