Championships are won up front and the Clemson Tigers hope to add an important piece to the future offensive line when Shrine Bowl standout JerQuari Schofield visits this weekend. The 6-6, 300 pound tackle is one of the top targets remaining on the Clemson's recruiting board and will begin his official visit in Tigertown Friday evening.

"I am going to Clemson this weekend," Schofield told CUTigers.com Thursday evening. "My mom, dad and little brother will be coming with me. My little brother is 11. I'm looking forward to the visit."

What does the Shrine Bowl standout hope to see in Tigertown this weekend?

"I just want to go up there and have a good time," he said. "I know it is a great school. I just have my eyes wide open right now."

Two of JerQuari's Shrine Bowl teammates, who are enrolling early, have been working to get him to join them at Clemson.

"I have heard from a couple of my teammates. I have talked with Malliciah [Goodman] and J.K. [Jay]. They will be there this weekend. It will be good to see them," said Schofield.

How firm is the powerful lineman with his commitment to the Vols?

"I am fully committed right now, but I still have my eyes wide open. I won't make my final decision until signing day. My eyes will be open until then," replied Schofield.

This week the prize recruit received an in-home visit from Tennessee's new head coach.

"Coach [Lane] Kiffin came by this week. They came by the house. It was a good visit. It was my first time to meet him in person," said Schofield.

The Vols will get the final official visit later this month.

"I am going to Tennessee on the 23rd. Right now I am just interested in those two schools," said Schofield.
