OL A.J. Harmon Profile
One of the top prospects in the southeast for the class of 2008, Georgia native A.J. Harmon, says he's ready to commit to the Tigers, but any sort of formal announcement could be postponed if the entire Harmon family can't make it to Clemson Saturday for the Maryland game.
"I was planning on it (committing), but I need to have my mom and dad to come with me," Harmon told CUTigers.com. My dad may have to work late Saturday. I really want both my parents to see Clemson before I make a commitment.
"I am still going to come. I will come up with my mom. Hopefully my dad can make it."
The Georgia standout has seen all he needs to see of Clemson and Death Valley. This weekend he hopes his parents will come away impressed with Tigertown.
"That is basically it. I just want to show my mom around. I want to see what she thinks," he said.
When asked if the Tigers still are the big leader, Harmon said, "Yeah they are. I was planning on looking at Florida. I am still going to check them out too."
The prize recruit would like to make a package deal with the Tigers.
"I want to wait and see where our running back Lamar Brown goes. I want him to get offer from Clemson. We grew up together. It would help if he got an offer from Clemson. If they had offered him already we both would have committed to Clemson a long time ago."
If things go well this weekend a commitment to the Tigers could come as early as Sunday.
"I won't make a commitment on Saturday," said Harmon. "I am going to go back home and talk to my parents about the next day. I want to go over everything with them. I want my parents to talk to the staff. Then I may be ready to make a commitment on Sunday."
Harmon is expected to debut as the No. 1 prospect in the state of Georgia for the class of 2008.
