"I have offers from Florida, Tennessee, Clemson, South Carolina, N.C. State and North Carolina," he told CUTigers in a recent interview. "State and UNC are recent. I just got a letter from South Carolina last week."

When asked about his current favorites, Hampton responded, "I haven't visited any schools yet so I really don't know."

Two new members of Clemson's coaching staff have taken over the recruitment of the prize recruit.

"Coach Napier was recruiting me," Hampton said. "Now coach Cheese [Harbison] and coach Pearman are. Coach Cheese is a great dude."

What will the top defender consider when selecting a college?

"Basically I want to go somewhere I can enjoy myself and love it at the same time. I want to play. I want to go somewhere that I can play early," said Hampton.

Hampton also said he's yet to set any unofficial visits this winter or spring.

"Not yet," he said. "I am trying to figure that out. I don't know of any of them yet. I know I will soon. I will be going to the Nike combine this weekend."
