The Clemson football program played host to a big group of its commitments and a couple of uncommitted prospects for official visits this past weekend.
Among the committed recruits that took their official visit was Lannden Zanders. The Shelby (N.C.) Crest safety has been on Clemson’s commitment list since April, when he chose the Tigers over offers from Tennessee, Georgia Tech, Vanderbilt, Maryland and others.
