Rising sophomore QB visiting CU

Lassiter High School (Marietta, Ga.) 2011 quarterback Hutson Mason visited Clemson this past winter before going on to sign with Georgia in February. Mason's former backup, a rising sophomore, plans on making a Clemson visit of his own this weekend.

Although he's yet to speak with anyone on the Clemson staff about this weekend's trip, Eddie Printz still plans on visiting Tigertown.

"If you ask me what I'm going to be doing this weekend, I'll tell you that I'm going to Clemson," Prince told CUTigers on Wednesday.

Right now, he's received "a few letters every here and there." Printz said he's receiving interest from Alabama, South Carolina, Georgia and Auburn.

"And, hopefully Clemson," he said.

Printz spent most of his freshman year watching Mason break plenty of state passing records on his way to signing a scholarship with Georgia.

"I got in on a few fourth quarters when we were up on teams," Printz said.

"I wasn't allowed to do too much, because when I went in, we mostly ran the ball—we were trying to kill clock. I had a few completions, it was mostly screens."

Mason has been a positive influence to Printz as a quarterback and a veteran of the recruiting process.

"Everything he can do to help me, he always does great with," Printz said. "We're pretty good friends. He enjoyed the whole (recruiting) process and he tells me as much as possible."

Still new to the process, he's starting to get a feel for what the recruiting trail is all about.

"Right now, I'm just trying to get exposed, meet some new people, getting a feel for what my interests will be in college," Printz said. "I want to major in business."

Not only does he know what to look for in the classroom, Printz has an early plan for what he wants to see on the field.

"I'm hoping to fit into the correct offense, make sure that I fit into the right system. I want to make sure an offense fits me well so I can do some good there," he said.

This summer, Printz has planned to camp at Alabama, Auburn and South Carolina.

Printz's father, Eddie, said his son finished third among 96 competitors in the Elite 11 competition in Tuscaloosa, Ala. last weekend.
