Clemson remains in running with McCall, Clemons

June 27, 2014 

Dillon junior QB Avery McCall (6-2 195) will be one of the hot signal-callers in the state the next two seasons. He’s coming off an injury plagued sophomore season in which he led the Wildcats to the 2A state championship.

McCall already has several offers but is not rushing the process. “Right now he’s just concentrating on us, trying to get better,” Dillon coach Jackie Hayes said.

McCall has offers from USC, Clemson, Tennessee, East Carolina, North Carolina, LSU, Ohio State and NC State. Florida State has shown strong interest this summer and wants him to come down for a camp but McCall has not expressed strong enough interest to warrant a trip Hayes said.

USC has been reported as a favorite but Hayes said he can’t confirm that. “He hasn’t said that to me. I do know he likes them a lot but he’s not gone in there and said that’s where I’m going to school yet.”

DE Rasool Clemons of South Aiken is focused on Clemson, LSU, Tennessee, Florida State, Virginia and Kentucky and will narrow his list even more in the next couple of weeks according to his coach Jeremy West.

“He’s a LSU fan so a lot of people are sitting back and seeing that. He’s gone to visit everywhere and he’s trying to sit which ones he likes the best.”

West is expecting Clemons to make a decision in early August.
