ATH Darius Lipford (6-4 210) of Lenoir, NC had planned to go to Clemson Saturday for the Virginia game but his transportation didn't materialize, so he didn't make it. Lipford plans to be at USC this weekend for the Clemson game. He said that visit could become official but he's not sure on that yet.
Lipford, who is a soft verbal commitment to Duke, will make his official visit with the Blue Devils December 4th. He will take an official visit to North Carolina in January, and he also wants to set officials with Clemson and Virginia.
Lipford said Clemson and North Carolina have been working him hard of late. Clemson likes him as a linebacker while USC sees him as a safety. USC recruiters Jeep Hunter and Lorenzo Ward scouted him two weeks ago.
