5-Star OL Talks Recruiting

Clifton Geathers is one of the top big men in the country still available for the class of 2006 and the 5-star from South Carolina has been very quiet when it comes to recruiting so far in the process. Is he getting any closer to naming favorites?

"I'm still looking at all schools really. I couldn't even name any. I'm just looking at everybody," Clifton Geathers said.

Clifton has not taken in a game at a college stadium yet this year.

"I haven't been to any games this year yet. I may go to a South Carolina game and a Clemson game though."

The big guy has also not set any visits but he mentions two possible destinations down the road.

"I haven't set any officials yet but I will do that soon. I know I will most likely visit Virginia Tech and Florida but I'm not sure."

He's been getting most of his recruiting attention from one division, the SEC-East.

"I get a lot of calls from Tennessee, Florida and Georgia. South Carolina calls me a lot too. They send me a lot of stuff in the mail as well."

Clifton has been mentioned as a guy who is potentially athletic enough to play either side of the ball and a few colleges have taken notice of that as well.

"A couple of colleges want me to play defense like Virginia Tech and Tennessee. Georgia wants me on both sides of the ball. They'll decide when I get there I guess. I don't really have a preference either way."

The Geathers family name has been present in the NFL for quite some time and its' legacy is carried on by Clifton's older brother Robert who is currently with the Cincinnati Bengals. With all that knowledge of the recruiting process from family members who have been through it before, how big of a factor will they be in his decision?

"My family won't be too big of a factor. It's all pretty much up to me. My brother just tells me to stick with the books first. I talk to him a lot but he doesn't tell me to go to Georgia or anything like that."

Look for recruiting to pick up for the Palmetto State star when his season is complete.

"I will probably make my decision right before signing day. I'll set my official visits probably just after the season. My season is going pretty well. Last game I had about 16 pancakes."

Carver's Bay is 6-2 on the season. Stay tuned to Scout.com for the latest on this 5-star recruit right up through signing day 2006.
