Early enrollment?

Just one of Clemson's current 2010 commitments is a candidate for early enrollment next month.

Whether that happens for Chester guard Kalon Davis still remains to be seen. The semester at Chester HS doesn't end until after the holiday break in January and he's trying finish next week.

CUTigers caught up with him to see how that process is going.

"We're trying to get it done so my last day of high school will be next Friday," Davis said.

"I'm just making sure that I'm able to get out on time, go ahead and join the team and be a part of the Clemson family."

Once Davis knew that he would be good enough to play football in college, the idea of graduating early was always in the back of his mind.

"Knowing that I got a lot of my credits early, I figured if I didn't want to red-shirt, it'd be better for me to be able to come in early," he said. "I'm pretty sure that will improve my chances of not getting red-shirted. I'll be able to learn the playbook and start developing as a better college player earlier than anybody else in my class."

Coach Dabo Swinney and recruiting coordinator/wide receivers coach Jeff Scott visited Davis and his family on Tuesday. They talked about his early enrollment and ironed out any questions with mom and dad.

"They made sure (my parents) knew everything that they can do to make sure the experience is good for everybody," Davis said.

Clemson picked him up as a commitment in late July when he selected the Tigers over Wake Forest and Alabama. Scout.com currently rates him with three stars and as the No. 45 guard prospect in the nation.

Davis plans to major in computer engineering.
