Clemson will make the cut with LeMay

Soon after leaving the campus of Clemson University, the No. 2 quarterback in the nation revealed there's little doubt at least one school has solidified itself in his top five.

And that school, of course, is Clemson.

"Clemson has made the cut," he told CUTigers.com after leaving campus. "Right now I'm probably planning on making my next cuts in the middle of the summer. It could be down to five schools possibly but Clemson will definitely be one."

LeMay arrived on campus with his family around 2 o'clock this afternoon before leaving approximately five hours later.

Having been in Tigertown last year for spring practice, he knew what to expect of the day.

"We got there in time for the meetings before practice started then we headed out to practice," he said. "With Clemson the thing that always sticks out with you is the people. Every time I talk with the coaches or go down there, they don't change and that's impressive.

"That's definitely how it was today and that's something that is very important to me."


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)
Outside of talking to the coaching staff, LeMay had the opportunity to talk with Kyle Parker and Tajh Boyd as well.

"My conversations with the coaches were pretty serious," he said. "Coach Swinney and Coach Napier told me if I feel this is the place I needed to be that they would accept me with open arms.

"You can tell that they just care about you so much at Clemson and they treated me and my family well.

"And with Kyle and Tajh - I spent some time talking to them too. They were there when I first got there today. I knew Tajh from a while back so we know each other pretty good."

LeMay also was impressed with Clemson's spring practice session as well.

"Now I know why they had such a good season last year. They've got a bunch of big guys that can move and everything was really up-tempo. They really get a lot of reps in and we were impressed by that," he said.

Next up for the future five-star quarterback will be a trip to Athens, followed by a quick trip to Auburn before heading home.

"Home will be nice," he said. "It's always good to take a trip home. I'm actually in Athens right now because it wasn't the long of a drive down here, but I'll be looking forward to getting back home."

And last but not least, LeMay, who really seems to know what he wants from a college, said he's got an idea of what he's looking for with his school of choice.

"I do," he said. "I know what I want but I want to give everybody an equal chance and that's what I'm doing right now. I've got some evaluations to do over the next couple of weeks so I'll do those and go from there."

LeMay led Butler High to a NCHSAA 4AA state title and a 15-0 record last season, which included two victories over Independence.

On the year, 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.
