CUTigers heard from the Dorman (Roebuck) athlete shortly after the offer was passed along.

"Got the offer," he said in text message.

While riding home, Humphries spoke about the afternoon.

"Everything about it was great. Everybody there was nice. They really made me and my family feel comfortable. It's one of the top schools that I've seen," he said.

Humphries doesn't want to rush into anything, although he is very happy with what happened Wednesday.

"I just want to make sure it's the right decision. I don't want to rush it, but I just want to take my time and make sure it's the right decision," he said.

He and Dorman teammate Charone Peake, who is also Clemson's top target at wide receiver in 2011, have enjoyed several years of success together on the football field.

This fall, Humphries will continue his do-it-all role at Dorman. He'll line up at defensive back, wide receiver while also returning punts and kicks.

At defensive back during his junior season, Humphries racked up 46 tackles and four interceptions.

Though Clemson is recruiting him to play wide receiver, several other schools are looking at him to play on the defensive-side of the ball.

"I played defense last year. I feel more comfortable at that, but I feel like I'm just as good at wide receiver," he said.

Humphries spent most of the summer leading into his junior season playing basketball. Instead of hitting combines and camps, he was on the hardwood at camps and tournaments.

"The Shrine Bowl combine was the only combine I've been to. We do combines at Dorman too," he said.

At the Shrine Bowl combine, that's where he posted his 40-yard dash time of 4.5.

Humphries reported his most recent maxes in the weight room: 285 on bench press, a 375 squat and 255-pound power clean.

During his junior season on the basketball court at Dorman, he averaged 10.5 points/game, three assists and three rebounds/game.

"I've been a Clemson fan for a while," he said. "It's great (being recruited by Clemson)'s probably going to be one of my top choices." Top Stories
