Butler High School (Matthews, N.C.) four-star rated quarterback Christian LeMay won't be in Clemson this weekend for Junior Day, but plans to be in Tigertown sometime during spring practice. CUTigers caught up with his father recently for the latest on the No. 2 ranked quarterback in the class of 2011.
Pastor Stacy LeMay said his son's gotten a good look at what Clemson's like off the field, but now wants to get a closer look at what goes on during practice.
"Once they start spring practice in March, that's when we're looking to get on down there, sometime when they get that going there," he said.
The LeMays were in Clemson last year during spring drills.
"We made it down for a practice and then the spring game," LeMay said. "We'll be looking to make it down there again take another look at it."
Last season, LeMay led Butler High to a NCHSAA 4AA state title and a 15-0 record, which included two victories over Independence. On the season, the 6-foot-3, 185-pound quarterback threw for 3,296 yards with a 44-2 touchdown-to-interception ratio and a 69-percent completion rate. (Scout.com)
In January, LeMay texted a list of his son's favorite schools. Along with Clemson, the list consisted of Florida, Alabama, Oklahoma, Miami, Mississippi State, Florida State, Virginia Tech and North Carolina were the schools that made that 10.
"Now with others coming in, that may adjust, so we'll see," LeMay said.
Clemson remains in good standing.
"They're really on the high end of the selection. We love coach Dabo (Swinney) and coach (Danny) Pearman and coach Jeff (Scott) down there," LeMay said. "They've just got a great team of people and a great surrounding that Christian is quite interested in taking a look at a little closer.
"They're going to probably be down to the wire."
A final five will be cut down by June and a final three by July. A "leader" will be named shortly there after. The family believes the word commitment "has a lost its value in the sports community. However, it still has greater value to us but we prefer to use the word leader."
Other offers include: Maryland, North Carolina State, Oregon, Wake Forest, West Virginia, Illinois, Tennessee and Michigan.
Lemay told Scout.com affliate InsideCarolina.com on Feb. 10 that Clemson "is definitely in the top five cut already..."
