DB Chris Culliver Profile
6-1, 190 pound safety prospect Chris Culliver visited Death Valley where he saw the Tigers whip Georgia Tech in October.
"It was a nice visit. I liked everything. The people were great. The coaches showed me some love," Culliver told CUTigers.com in a recent interview. "I talked with coach Bowden before the game. He told me hopefully they would get to use me on offense some as well if I do decide to go to Clemson."
Culliver had the opportunity to speak with two other Shrine Bowl prospects during the game.
"I talk to Marcus [Gilchrist] a lot. We talk about playing together in the same defensive backfield. When I went to Clemson for the Georgia Tech game I talked to Willy [Korn] and Marcus. Willy was talking trash to me and Marcus about the Shrine Bowl."
Where would the prize recruit sign if today were national signing day?
"I don't know. I would probably come down to Clemson and Florida," he said.
Two other teams are also trying to make a late push for Culliver.
"South Carolina and Florida State are trying to work their way in there. Right now it is just Clemson and Florida," he said. "Hopefully I will try to make a decision in December. I had hoped to make a decision in November, but it is already here. I haven't taken any officials yet. I might be ready to make a decision by Shrine bowl week."
Culliver also said he plans to make several more trips this fall.
"I have not been to Florida yet. I am going to try to go down on November 11 to see them play South Carolina," he said. "I may go down for the Clemson - NC State game. I will also try to go down for the game against South Carolina."
The star athlete is having a great senior season for Garner High.
"Our season is going real well," he said. "We are 9-1 right now. Hopefully after Friday we will be 10-1. I'm not sure of my exact stats but I have between 15 and 20 touchdowns. I also have two receivers. I am still making plays. I am doing returns, playing a little receiver, playing some running back and playing defense."
