6-5, 325 pound lineman A.J. Harmon had hoped to visit Clemson earlier this month, but like many trips before, he was unable to make the visit. In a recent interview, Harmon told CUTigers.com his next trip to the upstate will be coming up in May.

"It is going to be the end of May or June 1 think," he said. "It will be sometime after our spring game. Our spring game is May 28."

The Georgia standout also had to cancel a visit scheduled for last weekend because of a death in the family.

"I was going to go somewhere this weekend, but I had to go to a funeral yesterday. My cousin got killed. I guess she is more like an aunt. She used to whip my behind when I acted up," Harmon said.

The halls of Jefferson County High School will be filled with college recruiters over the course of the next few weeks.

"Most of the schools will be coming by the next few weeks. Michigan is coming in on Friday. Clemson is coming one day this week. Alabama is coming on Thursday and Georgia is coming on Wednesday," said Harmon.

When asked about his current leaders, Harmon responded, "I don't have leaders any more to be honest. All doors are open. I thought I had it all done, but now that Michigan is coming in and I need to see what kind of impact they will have."

One of the things pushing some teams to the top is the position they want the prize recruit to play.

"That is separating everything," he said. "I want to play defensive tackle. Now some schools are talking about me playing offensive line and playing early. Georgia, Clemson, Florida and Tennessee all are talking about me playing defensive tackle. That is why I like them the best. If I go elsewhere I would have to start early on the offensive line."

In terms of a potential decision, Harmon says he could make announcement before the start of his senior year.

"I may have a decision before my season," he said. "I am starting to talk with my coach about it now. I also want to see how my mom and dad feel about it. If I don't do it before the season it will be sometime after the season."
