LB planning another Clemson trip

With the linebacker position identified as one of the top priorities in the 2011 class, Clemson is looking up to the state of North Carolina for a couple of prospects.

CUTigers recently caught up with White Oak High School (Jacksonville) linebacker Tremayne McNair, who claims offers from several schools across the ACC.

He currently claims a top five as well.

"Duke, North Carolina, Clemson, Georgia Tech and Arkansas," McNair said, "no order."

The weekend of the North Carolina Shrine Bowl combine in Monroe, McNair was one of several prospects from the state to visit Clemson. It was the first time he'd been to Tigertown.

"We went around and saw all of the facilities, the camp going on for the little kids. It was cool to meet all of the coaches," McNair said. "The weight room was really nice. I didn't get to run down the hill because they were doing something to the field."

This spring he went to junior days at Duke, North Carolina and North Carolina State. McNair also saw the Tar Heels' spring game. He's recently visited East Carolina, too.

More visits to Clemson could be on the horizon.

"I don't know about this summer, but I'm going to go down there for a couple of games," McNair said.

He's started considering official visit destinations, but hasn't set any in stone, though he does like the possibility of taking one to Clemson.

"I'll probably take one to Clemson and Chapel Hill, maybe, I don't know yet. Georgia Tech," McNair said.

If selected, a decision will be announced at the Shrine Bowl in December.

"All the schools I'm looking at have a very good academic program and a good football program," he said. "They all have the major I want—sports management."

McNair said he speaks mostly with defensive coordinator Kevin Steele and defensive line coach Dan Brooks when in communication with the Clemson staff.

"I talk to them every other day through e-mail," McNair said.
