6-2, 285 pound defensive tackle Brandon Thompson will be back at Clemson for the second time in a month when he comes to watch the spring game this weekend.

"I am going up for the spring game," he told CUTigers.com in a recent interview. "I am going with another player. My father will also be coming with me."

The talented defender, who had 51 tackles including 19 solos as a junior, visited Clemson earlier in March.

"I went down to Clemson several weeks ago," he said. "I went down for an unofficial visit. I really enjoyed it.

"I saw all the facilities and the campus on my last visit. This visit I just want to see the football team. I want to see that aspect," replied Thompson.

The Tigers are one of two offers, but expect that to change over the next few months.

"Clemson and Duke have offered so far," he said. "But I am also hearing from Florida State, Florida, Georgia, LSU, Central Florida, South Florida and Ole Miss."

When asked about his current leader, Thompson responded, "Clemson is my leader. I love the school. I love the atmosphere at Clemson. I like everything academic wise. I like that they are ranked among the top 30 public universities."

Clemson assistant coach Billy Napier is recruiting the Georgia standout for the Tigers.

"I like him," said Thompson. "He is a cool guy. He is nice to talk to. He knows the lord just like I do."

A commitment to the Tigers could come as early as this weekend.

"I might commit on my visit," he said. "I am going to talk it over with my father. He loves it to. I kind of want to wait to make my decision during the summer after I have enough time to think it over."

Thompson recorded 51 tackles and five sacks during his junior season.
