DT J.C. Lanier Profile
Tuesday afternoon Clemsoan assistant coach and recruiting coordinator Billy Napier and defensive line coach Chris Rumph visited Emanuel County Institute (Ga.) to check on 6-3, 340 pound defensive tackle J.C. Lanier.
"Coach Napier and coach Rumph came by the school today. Georgia Tech and Georgia have also been by the school."
Two ACC schools were the first to offer, but that list will grow quickly over the next few months.
"Clemson and Georgia Tech have offered. I am hearing from a number of other schools including Georgia," said Lanier.
When asked about his current leader, Lanier responded, "I think Clemson is my leader right now. The one thing I really like is they have been really straight forward with me. They want me to play defense. I like that I also like their running backs."
The two-way standout could play offense or defense at the next level.
"I prefer to play defense. I have played it longer," said Lanier. "I think I am more of a run stopper. My best thing is stopping the run. I can sack the quarterback also, but my strength is stopping the run. I have good hands. I am working on my speed to get faster."
Several visits are planned for the next few months for the Georgia standout.
"Clemson wants me to come up on March 8. Georgia Tech wants me to come this weekend, but I haven't told my mom yet," said Lanier.
Expect an early decision from the future 4-star lineman.
"I think I will probably make my decision this summer. I don't want to worry about coaches and recruiting during the school year," said Lanier.
