Clemson in the running for an official

America's top 2011 defensive end can pick and choose between any school across the country and three standout right now. The last time he spoke to CUTigers, Clemson was in the running. Might that still be the case?

DE Jadeveon Clowney Profile

In just a few years of existence, Rock Hill's South Pointe High School has sent several highly touted prospects on to the next level. Jadeveon Clowney could very well be the best.

As it stands today, Alabama, North Carolina and South Carolina have the best shot at picking up his commitment during the Under Armour All-American Bowl.

On Friday, Clowney he spoke to CUTigers about a few of the schools that he's considering.

Alabama: They know how to win. They're a winner.

South Carolina: I've got some players that I played with that play for them.

North Carolina: I like their defensive line coach.

Clemson: I like them too. I like coach (Chris) Rumph. He's cool down there.

This summer, Clowney said he's "supposed" to camp at Texas. Plans have been made to head to Alabama and North Carolina during the summer.

Do you plan to make it back to Clemson at all during your recruitment?

"Not that I know of for unofficial visits, but probably an official visit—probably, but there's no guarantee," Clowney said.

He's also considering official visits to LSU and Southern California. Top Stories
