RB Roderick McDowell Profile
The recruitment of the No. 1 running back in the Palmetto state has turned into a battle as the South Carolina Gamecocks try to steal a Clemson verbal commitment.
"They are coming at me hard, but I am going to wait and see how the coaching situation at Clemson ends up. I am still committed to Clemson," McDowell told CUTigers.com Tuesday evening. "I am still committed, but I am keeping my options open."
The coaching situation has caused the Shrine Bowl standout to postpone his official visit to Clemson.
"I am going to hold off for a week or two. I want to make sure I get to meet the staff if there is a change," said McDowell.
Another school is also starting to check in with McDowell more in recent weeks.
"Right now I am also hearing some from Kentucky. They are mainly just sending emails and checking in with me," he said.
The prize recruit had another outstanding performance last week in limited playing time.
"I didn't play that much. I had 98 yards on four carries. I had two touchdowns, one rushing and one receiving," said McDowell.
Clemson running backs coach Andre Powell spoke with the Sumter standout last week.
"I think it was last week when I spoke with him. He told me the game plan they had for Florida State. He told me how if I come up to Clemson they are going to get me involved in the game plan," he added.
