Clemson scouts 4-star OL

Clemson offensive coordinator Billy Napier made several stops Wednesday during his 12-state tour this month to check in on some of the top 2011 and 2012 prospects on the Tigers' board.

One of those stops was at Dalton High School (Georgia), home of Scout.com four-star offensive tackle Watts Dantzler.

On Wednesday night, CUTigers caught up with Dantzler.

"(Napier) stopped by in the morning and spent most of his time with my coach," Dantzler said. "He went on his way because I'm sure that he had some other places that he had to see too."

Coaches from Auburn, Alabama, Georgia, Tennessee, Kentucky and Illinois have also stopped by Dalton during the May evaluation period.

At the Scout Showcase in late January, Dantzler unveiled Alabama, Auburn, Georgia, Tennessee and Vanderbilt as his five. Although Clemson wasn't part of that group, he made the drive up to Tigertown to check out spring practice not long after he named those five as a top group.

"They're still in the mixture, for sure. I'm not ruling them out, but we'll see. I haven't really thought about it yet," Dantzler said.

Other spring visits included: Auburn, Georgia, Auburn, North Carolina and Duke.

He's yet to set any plans for this summer.

"I haven't decided where I'll be able to go visit and whether or not I'll got to camps or just watch," Dantzler said. "I haven't decided what I can do this summer with basketball, football and work-outs."

By the time of his 19th birthday on Nov. 16, Dantzler hopes to have a good idea of which school or schools he favors.

"I haven't really decided what I'm going to do that day. Hopefully, I'll have it down to one or two—hopefully one, but we'll see," he said.
