5-star MLB looks forward to visit

At the start of the summer of 2010, Clemson received a visit from 5-star Tony Steward. It looks like another five-star middle linebacker is planning to visit Clemson, but at the end of the summer.

Kempsville High School (Virginia Beach, Va.) middle linebacker Travis Hughes would have preferred to make his first trip to Clemson in July. Due to scheduling conflicts, he won't be able to make it to Tigertown until August.

Better late than never.

"I can't wait to get down to Clemson," he recently told CUTigers.

"My dad just scheduled something. We're going to go down there Aug. 14. I think that's when he said we're going to go down there."

About a week ago, Hughes said he was in Chapel Hill to visit North Carolina. He's planned trips to Virginia Tech and Virginia later this month.

"At Virginia Tech, we're going to tour the whole campus. They'll have a camp going on. I'm not participating, but I'm going to watch the camp, talk to the coaches, show my face back up there," he said. "I'm trying to get to the main schools that I'm interested in. UVA is one of the first schools that I visited."

Several schools standout, but Hughes claims neither favorites nor an order.

Along with Clemson, North Carolina, Virginia Tech, Maryland and LSU are the five he's most interested in, at the moment.

"There's no particular order…those schools I'm eying them. I like them," Hughes said.

Michigan and Tennessee are right there behind that group, too.

"They've showed me a lot of love and I'm actually pretty interested in," he said.

Hughes would like to make his decision midway through his senior season at Kempsville.

"I'm going to try to get to some games, get my official visits in," he said.
