Ferlando Bohanna holding four

Ferlando Bohanna, middle linebacker from Memphis-Whitehaven, Tenn., has received four scholarship offers with the most recent coming from Clemson. He talked about the latest news and plans for the summer.

"Clemson offered me two nights ago," said Ferlando Bohanna. "It's a great opportunity for me and my family. It's a real good thing."

"I talked to coach Steele and coach Brooks. They said I was a guy they were looking for. They are looking for a linebacker that plays my style of football."

"I will probably be taking a trip there this summer. I don't know much about Clemson. They are the top school in the ACC. I know a lot about coach Steele. He is a good defensive coordinator."

Bohanna has received scholarship offers from North Carolina, Middle Tennessee and Southern Miss as well. He has been receiving strong interest from several programs including Oregon and Tennessee.

"I am going to Tennessee's camp next Tuesday," he said. "Hopefully I will be able to check out Clemson and North Carolina later on."

"After I go to the Tennessee camp I am heading out to Arizona. I am going to live with my uncle out there for about three weeks. Then I am coming back."

The Memphis product does not list any favorites, but he did talk about the other offers on the table as well.

North Carolina: "It's a great offer. A corner [Gene Robinson] of ours went there. It's a great thing to have an offer from them."

Southern Miss: "It's a good thing. I talked to a couple of their coaches. A tight end, named Leroy [Banks], goes there that came from our school. Most of the teams that have offered have players that played at Whitehaven."

Middle Tennessee: "They are looking at our cornerback and quarterback. Everywhere I am getting attention they are too."

The 6-foot, 240-pound prospect talked about spring training for the Tigers.

"Spring training went great," Bohanna said. "We had coaches out every day. Everything is coming together. I just tried to work on getting my guys focused on the defense. I am the captain and wanted to be a leader."
