Clemson third but still alive with Clemons

July 10, 2014 

Tennessee, LSU and Clemson are the top three in order for DE Rasool Clemons (6-6 200) of South Aiken. Clemons will visit Tennessee this weekend and plans to visit Clemson sometime after he returns from Knoxville.

When asked if he would commit to Tennessee while on the visit he said, "I don't know yet."

Clemons had lost contact with Clemson but said that the Tigers have recently reopened the lines of communication.

"They told me they thought I was going to commit to LSU so I kind of fell of their radar," Clemons said. "I like Clemson. They're close to home and close to my mom, so that's good."

He visited LSU for their spring game and enjoyed the trip. While there, he decided to hold off on a commitment. Clemons also attended the North Carolina spring game but he is no longer hearing from the Tar Heels.

His offers include Clemson, LSU, Virginia, Florida State, Kentucky and Tennessee. USC has not offered. His trip to Clemson will be his second visit to the Upstate school.
