Bryant back on track with Clemson

The big word out of Clemson's recruiting weekend is coming from T.L. Hanna HS (Anderson) wide receiver Martavis Bryant. Also CUTigers talks with Dexter Staley, DeShaun Williams, Price Litton and more inside!

Though he planned to visit Georgia sometime this fall, a trip to Athens might be called off.

"I'm not sure if I'm going any more," he told CUTigers Sunday afternoon.


Martavis Bryant was Clemson's first verbal commitment for the class of 2010.
A four star 2010 wide receiver, he is ranked the No. 17 prospect for his position in the nation by Scout.com.

Bryant also said he is now firm with his commitment to Clemson after seeing the Tigers play Middle Tennessee Saturday night.

"I talked to the coaches and they took me around the new facilities," he said.

Fellow commit DeShaun Williams, a 2011 defensive tackle from right around the corner at Daniel HS, spent most of his time on camps talking to fellow commits and other 2011 prospects, trying to get an idea of where they're going.

"I talked to them and most of the Clemson commitments that were there," Williams said.


"I loved it. This is my first time coming to a college football game. I loved it," 2011 standout Dexter Staley said. "The game was great."
He talked to 2010 commits Kalon Davis, Demont Buice, Desmond Brown and Joe Craig on Saturday. Making connections with his future teammates will pay off down the road.

"It's like building a bond. If I do it now, I know in college we'll really be closer. That's what you need in a football team, to be a very good team. When you're a team you're as one. Nobody can break that."

Williams continues to be firm with his commitment to the Tigers.

Williston-Elko HS (Williston) middle linebacker Dexter Staley (2011) enjoyed touring the facilities and talking with coaches for about 10 minutes, he said. It was a thrill doing something he'd never done before.

"I loved it. This is my first time coming to a college football game. I loved it," he said. "The game was great."

Staley liked the special teams touchdowns by Jacoby Ford and C.J. Spiller. Spiller's opening kickoff return for touchdown was couldn't have been a better way for Staley to get started at his first college game.

Death Valley and the atmosphere inside it drew high regards from Staley, "I loved them both."

"I might also visit Georgia and South Carolina," he said. "I might go to one or two other games."

Another 2011 prospect, quarterback Price Litton, was also on hand for the game from Charlotte (Providence Day School) expects that an offer could be coming his way soon when Clemson coaches evaluate the film he dropped off.


Clemson continues to lead for 2011 QB Price Litton.
Litton transferred from Weddington HS because playing time was minimal behind 2010 Duke commit Anthony Boone. Litton said Clemson coaches would like to see the film before making an offer.

As he was riding into town with a friend and his mom on Saturday, Litton was taken back by the scene.

"It was crazy. All the fans and everybody tailgating…it was pretty cool," he said. "(The game) was so exciting, just the atmosphere and everything. It was ecstatic, not boring at all.

Litton also confirmed that the Tigers continue to lead for his services.
