In-state Battle for Leamon

In-state Battle for Leamon


In-state Battle for Leamon


By Keith McGonigle.

Clemson is always in a constant recruiting battle with South Carolina for in-state prospects.  One guy that Clemson does not want the Gamecocks to grab is Woodruff offensive tackle Javarius Leamon.   At 6’6 ½” and 265 lbs. it is not surprising that the big offensive lineman is a heavily regarded prospect (rated #7 in South Carolina by TCI).  So far the in-state lineman does not have a favorite.

“The recruiting process has been going good so far, but I don’t really have any top schools right now.”

Leamon holds scholarship offers from Clemson, South Carolina, Auburn and ECU to this point and will probably receive more as the year goes on.    What has the Clemson coaching staff been telling Leamon?

“They say that they need someone like me at Clemson.  They tell me that Clemson is the place to be and want me to come and visit any chance I get.”

What makes Death Valley different than other schools?

“The game-day atmosphere is great at Clemson.”

Does Leamon see Clemson as one of his top schools as the recruiting process goes on?

“To tell you the truth I really couldn’t tell you right now it’s still early.”

What are the top lineman’s strengths and weaknesses?

“My biggest strength is that I finish plays.  Right now I am working on being a better player and leader on the field, and a better student in the classroom.”
