Clemson still battling Tar Heels for Mollette

May 15, 2014 

WR Juval Mollette of Randleman, NC has gone back and forth between Clemson and North Carolina as his favorite. He visited Chapel Hill a couple of weekends ago with his mother and that has elevated the Tar Heels back to the point where the Tigers had resided for weeks after he visited there.

"My mom liked it, that was the main reason for us going," Mollette said. "I took her to Clemson also and she liked it. She said she likes (North) Carolina more. She said she liked their spirit and she felt like they would take good care of me if I went there."

Mollette said it's been a little while since he last talked to Clemson though he's had some social interaction and received mail from them. Jeff Scott and Robbie Caldwell from Clemson have been thru this spring.

Mollette plans to return to Clemson for a camp this summer and he is also going to take visits to Tennessee and Virginia Tech and will try to get to Michigan. Those three make up the final part of his top five.

"Everybody in my top five has a chance," Mollette said. "I just favored out Clemson and Carolina because they were recruiting me the hardest at the time."

Mollette said he won't have a decision until the end or June or early July.

On a side note, Mollette said he lives about four minutes from the home of Richard Petty and his grandson is the starting quarterback on their team and is one of his best friends.
