Florida RB has Clemson interest

With all the luck Clemson's had grabbing running backs out of Florida; it's no wonder why this 2013 prospect lists the Tigers as one of his five favorites.

RB Tarean Folston Profile

Cocoa High School junior Tarean Folston has already camped at Florida this summer. The only other college campuses he's visited to this point in his recruitment are Florida State and Florida A&M.

"Clemson camp has already passed. I was thinking of going there. But [also] Oregon, Florida State and maybe North Carolina for camp," he recently told CUTigers.com.

The 5-foot-10, 190-pound running back has yet to visit Clemson, though he hopes to change that.

"Clemson has always been a school that I wanted to go to. It's always been one of my top schools," Folston said.

He shared a few thoughts about each of the schools that occupy his top-five.

Clemson: I like the way the run the ball. They run it one play, they pass another play. The running backs flare out for passes. They've had a winning program the last couple of years.

Florida: They've always been a fast-paced team and a winning program. I've been watching Florida since I can remember.

Oregon: It's the same fast-pace. They distribute the ball to their running backs a lot. They're a nice academic school. They throw a lot of option and shotgun. I could pretty much fit in any scheme out there.

Miami: They just run the ball, just line up and knock you right off the ball.

South Carolina: They throw the ball quite a bit, but I hear good things about them.

As a sophomore, Folston rushed 1,267 yards and 17 touchdowns.

Florida, Kentucky, Boston College, Cincinnati, Illinois, Louisville and Vanderbilt have already offered.
