DL A.J. Cann Profile Next Bamberg Stud The Clemson coaching staff has signed two five-star defensive ends from Bamberg-Ehrhardt during the last three years and once again they are back trying to pull one of the state's top prospects to Clemson for 2010.
Two-way star lineman A.J. Cann could be the top offensive line prospect in the Palmetto state for 2010 and his offer list is growing by the week.
"I am hearing from Clemson, South Carolina, Oklahoma, Georgia Tech, Tulsa, Oregon, Middle Tennessee, N.C. State, Maryland, Duke and Georgia," he told CUTigers.com in a recent interview. "All of them have offered except for Alabama and Georgia."
The two-way standout could play on either side of the ball at the next level. Which position are schools recruiting him for the most?
"It is about half and half. Some schools want me for defensive and some for offense. Clemson wants me to play offensive line. I play tackle right now," said Cann.
With the departure of Ron West to Tulsa, Clemson has a new recruiter working Bamberg Ehrhardt.
"Coach Rumph is recruiting me for Clemson. I like him a lot," said Cann.
The Tigers have two 5-star players on the roster from Bamberg Ehrhardt.
"Actually we are real close," Cann said. "They come by the school every once and a while. I see them and we always talk. "It would be a pleasure if I could play with Quan."
An early verbal commitment is not in the plans right now.
"I am going to wait for a while. I want to open my eyes and see what everyone has to offer," said Cann.
The Palmetto standout has already visited one of his early favorites, with more on the way.
"I went to Georgia for Junior Day," he said. "I really liked it. I liked the facilities. It was nice. I liked the academic support system they have.
"I am going to Clemson for Junior Day on February 21. I went to the spring game last year. I also went to the Maryland game. It was loud and it was exciting."
Cann, who is the No. 9 prospect in the state according to Scout.com, recorded 84 tackles, including 22 for loss and two forced fumbles through 12 weeks of his junior season.
