OL Nick Becton Profile
One of the top offensive linemen in the Tar Heel State for the class of 2008, 6-7, 285 pound Nick Becton, traveled to Clemson last weekend for an unofficial visit.
"It was a good visit. I went down Saturday and watched the scrimmage. My parents came down with me. I got to tour the weight room and the coaches' offices," Becton told CUTigers.com.
The New Hanover (N.C.) standout has two in-state offers currently, but expect that offer list to grow over the next few months.
"I have two offers right now," he said. "I have offers from East Carolina and North Carolina State. I am also hearing from Clemson, North Carolina, South Carolina, Alabama, Auburn and Virginia."
The Clemson coaching staff would like to get a look at Becton in camp before deciding on an offer.
"Yeah Clemson wants me to come to camp this summer. I think I will go down for one of their camps," stated Becton.
When asked if he has any current leaders, Becton responded, "No, not yet. I am open right now."
What will be important to Becton as he selects a college?
"I will look at the academics first. I will also see how I like the coaching staff. I will also look at the facilities," he said.
The decision timing is not clear for the talented lineman.
"I don't know yet when I will be ready. I plan to wait it out some and see who offers," said Becton.
The North Carolina standout will make a return visit to the Palmetto state.
"I will be going to South Carolina for their spring game. I don't have any other visits planned right now," added Becton.
A massive offensive tackle prospect, Becton has played just one year of high school football. However, he has all the tools to be a quality lineman on the next level.
Becton also receives minutes for his state-ranked basketball team and has great footwork and agility. In addition, he was an all-conference selection in 2006.
