Four-star cornerback Terry Shankle will spend three days in Clemson next week when he attends Tommy Bowden's annual football camp.

"I am going to the Clemson camp next week," Shankle told CUTigers.com in a recent interview. "I will be there from the 11th to the 13th. I want to learn some new drills while I am there. I am also looking forward to meeting some new people."

Several other visits are planned for this summer as well.

"I might go to camp at Virginia Tech and Alabama also. I might take a visit to Florida this summer as well," said Shankle.

When asked about his current favorites in the recruiting process, Shankle responded, "I really don't have any leaders right now. [North] Carolina, {N.C.] State, Virginia Tech, Florida, Alabama and Clemson would be my top six, but I haven't eliminated anyone yet."

Clemson assistant coach Billy Napier continues to work hard to keep the Tigers near the top.

"I talked to him a week ago," he said. "He told me about the camp. He also wants me to come down for a night game. I have been down there two times already."

The camp visit could be critical to the Tigers chances as a decision could come this summer.

"I am looking to commit before high school starts up next year. If I'm not ready it could be after my season," said Shankle.

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

"I am just going to sit down with my mom, my uncle and my coach. We will discuss where I should go. Playing time will not be a factor. I want to fit in well. I want to see how the coaches will treat me. I will also look at where I can get a good education," replied Shankle.

Shankle, the No. 19 cornerback prospect in the nation according to Scout.com, caught 49 passes for 957 yards and 12 touchdowns on offense last season for South Stanley High School. On defense, he had 15 interceptions with four going back for touchdowns and he also returned three punts for touchdowns on special teams.
