6-7, 330 pound lineman Bobbie Massie wasn't able to make it to Georgia camp over the weekend. The Virginia standout plans to camp at Clemson later this week, but his plans are not final.

"I am going to try and make it down on Thursday," he said. "I am planning to come, but it is not definite yet. I am just going down for the day."

Later this summer Massie plans to camp at another one of his top schools.

"I am supposed to go down to a camp at Liberty. My coach is going to take me to that one," said Massie.

A few weeks ago Massie had the opportunity to work with former Clemson and NFL star defensive tackle Brenston Buckner at the VTO combine in Charlotte. If he makes it to camp Thursday he looks forward to another opportunity to learn from coach Buckner.

"I look forward to working with him again," said Massie.

When asked about his current leader, Massie responded, "Georgia is still my leader."

What would it take for the Tigers to overtake Georgia?

"It would just be the relationship with the coaches. Clemson has only been recruiting me for two or three weeks. I haven't talked to coach Napier but a few times on the phone. I should get a chance to know them more if I make it down Thursday," replied the talented lineman.

The Clemson staff should have time over the next few months to build a stronger relationship.

"I am still planning to wait. I want to take some official visits before I make my decision," said Massie.

What are the summer plans for the two way standout?

"I am just planning on lifting and staying in shape. You can always get better," replied Massie.

Massie projects as an outstanding right tackle.

"Both Clemson and Georgia want me at right tackle. I like to play defense better than offense, but schools are looking at me more for offense. I am fine with that," said Massie.
