Another Carver lineman to Clemson?

The Tigers' efforts in signing two 2010 Carver High School (Columbus, Ga.) prospects is paying off in the recruitment of this 2011 offensive lineman.

OG Quincy McKinney Profile

CUTigers caught up with Carver offensive guard Quincy McKinney, who picked up a verbal offer from Clemson last week on National Signing Day.

"They called me up at our school and verbally offered," he said.

To date, his only two written offers are Georgia Tech and Duke. The other verbal offers are from North Carolina and Southern Mississippi.

So far this spring, McKinney's visited Auburn and Georgia Tech. He'll be in Gainesville this weekend for the Florida Junior Day and will "probably" head to Clemson for next weekend's Junior Day.

He claims no favorites at this point, but knows what he's looking for at each school.

"Just feeling like I'm at home, feeling comfortable," he said. "Great coaching. I want to learn when I go to college, as a football player, and as a student."

McKinney's visited Clemson twice--once last summer and again for the Middle Tennessee game.

"It feels homey to me," he said. "I feel comfortable with coach (Dabo) Swinney and coach (Charlie Harbison). I see myself going there."

CUTigers asked him, Does it help in Clemson's favor that David Beasley and Corey Crawford will be there?

"It really does. When I go up there, there are people I personally know, because I went to school with them. That's a factor."

As a junior, McKinney had 65 pancake blocks at left tackle. He's being recruited to play either position at the next level. Georgia Tech coach Paul Johnson told McKinney that he could play either for the Yellow Jackets. At Duke, McKinney would play guard or defensive tackle.

At this point, he's not sure which offensive line position he'd play at Clemson.

"I don't' have a preference. Whichever one lets me get on the field the fastest," McKinney said. Top Stories
