The nation's top offensive guard, Nick Alajajian, will visit Clemson along with several SEC schools this summer.

"I don't have any dates, but know where I am going," he told CUTigers.com in a recent interview. "I am going to visit Georgia, LSU, Clemson and Tennessee. I am not sure if I will do them in one trip or not just yet."

Clemson assistant coach Brad Scott was one of many coaches to visit the five-star offensive lineman this spring.

"Coach Scott came by to see me this spring. He really wants me to visit Clemson. There have been a bunch of coaches visit," said Alajajian. "I am still working on my top five. Right now my leader is Florida." Why do the Gators have the lead?

"It is really about my relationship with the offensive line coach and coach Meyer. That is why they are out front," replied Alajajian.

What will it take for Clemson or another team to overtake the Gators?

"It will just be based on how I feel. That is the only place I have been other than Floorida State. It will mainly be about my relationship with the coaches as I make the visits," replied Alajajian.

"I am probably going to make my decision in July."

What will be the most important when the prize recruit selects his college destination?

"I am going to look at my relationship with the coaches," he said. "I will look to see if they are stable. I will see if the program is going in the right direction."

One of the top interior line prospects in the entire state this season, Nick Alajajian will be a three year starter at Naples this fall.

He was the team's top lineman for their Class 3A state championship team (16-0) in 2007. Alajajian gave up only one sack all year. He says he can bench press an impressive 350 pounds and squat 450.

Alajajian also reports a 2.9 core GPA and a 19 ACT.
