RB Onterio McCalebb Profile
Clemson defensive line coach Chris Rumph has been recruiting four-star athlete Onterio McCalebb for the Tigers and both he and running backs coach Andre Powell met with the standout back earlier this week.
"The meeting went good. We talked about football. They asked what I wanted to see this weekend. They said for me to just have a nice time and see what they have to offer," McCalebb told CUTigers.com.
This weekend the Tigers will get an official visit from the "Big O."
"I am just coming by myself with my teammates," said McCalebb.
This will not be the first trip to Clemson as the Tigers recruited him heavily in 2008.
"I never made it up to a Clemson game. I did visit though," said McCalebb. "I just hope to have a nice time. I want to see how everything is."
The Hargrave standout and his teammates have talked about the possibility of playing together.
"Yes sir, we have talked about it. We are all real close," said McCalebb.
The long time Auburn commit remains officially with the Tigers from the plains, but he is eager to see who the new head coach will be.
"I'm still leaning towards Auburn. I am just waiting to see who the head coach will be. If he likes me I might still go there. If it's someone I don't like I will go somewhere else," said McCalebb.
What would it take for the Tigers to turn the Auburn verbal commit this weekend?
"It would just take for me to have a really nice time," he said. "I have been on visits, but there hasn't been on that stands out where I really had a lot of fun.
"I need to make my decision in the next two weeks. It will be done by the first week of January. I don't have any visits planned after Clemson."
The former Florida track star would like to do both sports at the next level.
"They didn't have track here. I would like to run track at college," he added.
