CUTigers recently talked with Demont Buice, who said he's feeling pretty good about his commitment to the orange and purple right now. If the Tigers aren't able to pick up a few more wins this season, it could shake things up with his commitment.
"I'm hoping that they can turn it around," he said. "I'm going because of the coaches. I don't want them ending with a bad season, then I go up there next year and we do the same thing and they get fired.
"It could end up being a big part in my decision if I'm still going to hold my commitment."
Buice was scheduled to visit Clemson a few weeks ago when Boston College visited Death Valley. The night before, he broke his ankle during Gaston's fourth game of the season. Although he's in a cast right now, he could be back by the third round of the state playoffs.
Unable to run or do much leg work, Buice said he works his upper body out everyday.
The injury was a letdown because of a personal goal he wanted to achieve.
"I was shooting to be Mr. Football in Alabama," he said. "I was on a real good track for that."
Even though he's been injured, Clemson coaches told Buice that they're still OK with his commitment.
His recruiter of record is defensive backs coach Charlie Harbison. The two speak about once a week.
As long as he's committed to Clemson, Buice was told that he can't visits anywhere else.
"They told me it's like breaking a marriage. It's like being engaged. You don't want to go off and cheat. I'm holding my word right now."
Through the three games and one quarter he played in during his senior season before the injury, Buice recorded 65 carries for 903 yards and 16 touhdowns.
The Scout.com three-star prospect is the No. 66 rated running back for the 2010 class.
