For the third weekend in a row, the Clemson coaches will host some of the top prospects from around the southeast.
Headlining the group will be Zerrick Cooper, a four-star 2016 quarterback from Jonesboro, Georgia, who visited Clemson earlier this season for the S.C. State game.
Cooper visited Georgia last weekend for the Vanderbilt game, his only other campus stop of the season. On Saturday, he’ll be joined in Clemson by his parents.
Kentucky, Ohio State, Miami, N.C. State and West Virginia are among the other schools that have offered Cooper.
Among the 2017 prospects expected in town is Archer High School (Lawrenceville, Georgia) athlete Jamyest Williams. Along with Clemson, Williams has offers from Georgia Tech, Kentucky, Louisville, Michigan and Wake Forest.
Also slated to visit is 2016 offensive lineman Pete Leota. The Asheville High School prospect visited Clemson earlier this season for the S.C. State game. He holds offers from Boston College and Wake Forest.
The Clemson hoops staff was set to have an official visitor on campus for a third-straight weekend, but the plans for Matt Neufield’s official visit have been called off.
Scheduled to be in town on Friday for Rock the John is four-star shooting guard Eli Wright. The Apollo High School (Owensboro, Kentucky) sophomore will stick around through Saturday’s football game.
Clemson offered a few weeks ago, joining the likes of Indiana, Mississippi State, Oklahoma State and Purdue.
Another basketball visitor, Ty’Shon Alexander, will be in town Saturday for the football game. Clemson offered Alexander (Charlotte, North Carolina) several weeks ago when he was on campus for the Brad Brownell Elite Camp. The 2017 guard also has offers from Virginia Tech and Charlotte.
The Clemson baseball staff will host two of its 2015 commitments on Saturday: RHP Brooks Crawford (Bishop, Georgia) and LHP Jake Higginbotham (Buford, Georgia).
The regular contingent of Clemson football commitments are expected to be in town for Saturday’s game: Kelly Bryant, Kaleb Chalmers, Gage Cervenka, Noah Green and Tanner Muse.
