Georgia running back remains on Clemson radar

May 21, 2014 

RB Mikell Lands-Davis (6-0 210) of Douglasville, GA had a monster junior season with 2473 rushing yards and 27 touchdowns. That has led to a bevy of offers this spring and a ton of interest from recruiters.

Clemson was one of the first to offer Lands-Davis and the Tigers have been thru the school twice this spring.

"Schools are finding out about him late because he's not a combine guy," said Alexander High School coach Matt Combs. "Clemson is still showing interest in him. He's being very diligent with the process. Academics and football and the coaching staff are important. I think they are all leaders right now."

Georgia Tech, in particular, has come on strongly of late with Lands-Davis. He has visited there along with Clemson, Auburn and Georgia and he will try to take more trips this summer. His coach said he wants to make his decision by the end of summer.

Combs said Lands-Davis is a physical runner and compared him in style to Eddie Lacy of the Green Bay Packers and formerly of Alabama.
