Though he's yet to pick up an offer from Clemson, Kris Frost said that he's sure one would be coming soon, maybe this weekend.

"I plan on going down there this weekend," he said. "I haven't been down on a visit yet, but I'm definitely going this weekend with my mom."

With over 10 offers to his name, Frost already lists Clemson in his top five, despite not having an offer.

"I haven't gotten the chance to look at all of these colleges and compare them," he said. "I'm trying to go out there and do that now this summer and have a solid top five going into this season so I can really lay them out and really make the right choices on where I'm going to go."

Along with Clemson; Auburn, Michigan, California and LSU make up the five.

Frost said he's looking for several criteria when evaluating schools.

"I want to go to a team that makes me feel best in their scheme and what they do defensively and offensively as well," he said. "How I could benefit from going to the school, whether or not I would have a chance to get on the field early. All of that is important."

Location is also a big-time factor.

"I haven't really cared about where I go for a school, but definitely the close schools have a whole lot of upside, places where my parents don't have to travel long distances to see my games," Frost said.

He plans to announce his decision at the U.S. Army All-American Bowl.

Before then, he plans to take all five official visits.

"I would say my officials would be to Michigan, because I've only had one visit there—LSU, Cal. I don't think I would take one to Auburn, because I have been there about four times," Frost said. "I would really have to look at all the others ones. I would say right now the last two would be maybe West Virginia and Clemson."

Most schools are recruiting him to play linebacker, but there are a few offers for wide receiver, defensive end and safety.

Wide receiver would be preferable, but that's not going to be a deciding factor.

"I'm really trying to go to the schools to see how I like them. I'd rather play receiver, but I don't think that will affect my decision in any way," Frost said. "I don't think it's that important. It's how the school feels, how they treat me as a recruit on visits."

Tight ends/offensive tackles coach Danny Pearman is Frost's primary recruiter to Clemson.

Frost is currently ranked as the No. 19 outside linebacker in the country and rated three stars by Scout.com.
