Townsend Goes To Clemson's Junior Day

February 21, 2010 

Marlboro County LB Lateek Townsend did end up making to a junior day Saturday....at Clemson. And he left there with no doubt in his mind about his favorite.

"Clemson is number one...there is no number two or number three," Townsend said. "I know a lot about the school academic wise and football wise. I know more about Clemson than any other school. I haven't been to any other schools. I talked with coach Swinney and coach Steele. I had a man to man talk with coach Steele. I got to know about him. I know how the coaches are there. I got to see the players and their lifestyle. It was my first time going inside of things and seeing how they live there."

Townsend said he's also picked up additional offers from Tennessee, North Carolina, Duke, Wake Forest, LSU, Miami and Alabama. He also has offers from Clemson, USC, Illinois, NC State, Maryland, East Carolina and Texas A&M. He plans to see other schools but said he's not sure where else he will visit.
