The halls of Baldwin High (Ga.) have been filled with college coaches checking up on star linebacker Corico Hawkins in recent weeks.

"This week Georgia, Florida, Clemson, South Carolina, Auburn and Indiana came by the school," he told in a recent interview. "There were some others also. We have had about 30 schools come by over the past few weeks."

Clemson sent two coaches to visit Milledgeville, Ga. this week.

"Coach Rumph and coach Blackwell came by for Clemson," he said. "We haven't started practice so they didn't get to see me practice."

The summer camp plans are still in process for the prize recruit.

"We start practice on June 2. After that I will work around our schedule to take some visits. We are going to Wake Forest for a team camp. I will probably go to Auburn for a one day camp. I am not sure where else," said Hawkins.

When asked about his current favorites, Hawkins responded, "They are still the same. Clemson, Florida and Auburn are the leaders. They are all even. Those are the schools recruiting me the hardest right now."

The decision timing is unclear at this point.

"I don't know. Whenever the time is right I will go ahead," said Hawkins. "They are all great schools. It is going to be pretty hard."

Last season Hawkins recorded 109 tackles, 16 for a loss, three caused fumbles, one fumble recovery. He was named First Team All-State and Team MVP for his efforts. currently ranks Hawkins as the No. 27 middle linebacker prospect in the country. Top Stories
