As the Tigers continue to search for another defensive end for the 2007 class, they are making a push for a Hargrave standout defensive end. Who is the current leader for this talented defender?

DE Miguel Chavis Profile

6-4, 260 pound defensive end prospect Miguel Chavis has already visited two SEC schools, and he now has a new leader.

"I visited Tennessee two weekends ago. Last weekend I went to Georgia. Both were good visits. I had a real good time at Georgia. Tennessee was my leader, but now Georgia is my leader," Chavis told CUTigers.com.

The Tigers will get an official visit in January. "I am going to visit Maryland on January 12. I will visit Clemson on January 19," he said.

The Hargrave standout played with future Tiger DeAndre McDaniel this year.

"He is a helluva player," said Chavis. "He hits very hard, especially for his size. He was known as the biggest hitter on our team. He is a great athlete. He is a good guy. My best friend is also going to Clemson next year. They are both working hard to get me to Clemson.

"I talked to coach Rumph a few times. I talk with coach Swinney more. He is my recruiter. He is really just building a relationship now. We met two months ago. They love my motor and my speed off the edge. I have a good relationship with coach Swinney. Clemson wants me to play weakside defensive end."

What would it take for Clemson to pull ahead of Georgia?

"All it is basically is the visit," Chavis said. "Tennessee set the standard and then Georgia did. I want to be comfortable where I go. I want to see what my comfort level is with the coaches and the players. I know Clemson has good alumni support and a good fan base. I will just see if I feel the same or better than I did at Georgia."

The prep standout plans to take the rest of his visits before making a decision.

"I will definitely take both the visits before I make up my mind. I was highly impressed with Tennessee then I was more impressed with Georgia. I appreciate all of the coaches letting me take my visits so that I can compare all of the schools," Chavis added.
