Napier Recruiting the Next C.J.?

One of the top junior running backs in North Carolina made his first visit to Death Valley last Saturday. CUTigers.com has all the details on his visit, in another recruiting update.

Running back C.J. Wilson (Lincolnton, N.C.) made the quick trip down to Clemson last weekend to take in the Tigers' 20-14 win over N.C. State.

"I loved it. I love everything about Clemson. Clemson is a nice place. I came up with two of my teammates and my coach," Wilson (6-0, 170) told CUTigers.com. "This was my first trip to Clemson. I loved it. I especially liked the locker room. Everything was so spaced out. Usually the locker rooms are so cramped."

Clemson assistant coach Billy Napier is recruiting Wilson for the Tigers and he showed the talented running back around Clemson.

"Yeah coach Napier took us around the locker room. He talked to us about Clemson," he said. "He also took us around campus."

The Tigers left a big impression on Wilson.

"I love that C.J. Spiller," Wilson said. H"e is fast. I liked Davis too. He is a good power runner."

The junior running back had an outstanding season for Lincolnton.

"I rushed for over 1200 yards," he said. "I had 17 total touchdowns. I also played a little defensive back when they needed me. I am more like Spiller, but sometimes I surprise you and hit you. They put me out in the slot a lot as well."

Wilson also said he does not yet own any scholarship offers because he only recently took the SAT.

"But I am hearing from Clemson, Alabama, North Carolina, Florida State, Duke, North Carolina State and South Carolina," he said. "My top schools are Clemson, South Carolina, State and North Carolina.

"I went to North Carolina a few weeks ago. I went to State two times. I have also been to Wake Forest."
