Union County DE Desmond Floyd (6-5 230) holds early offers from Kentucky and Duke according to his coach David Lipsey. Clemson, USC and NC State also are showing interest.
Kentucky coach Joker Phillips checked on Floyd when he was in the state late last month. Clemson and USC have invited him for a junior day. Floyd has been to Clemson for games but has not yet been to USC. "He's comfortable and likes it there (at Clemson)," Lipsey said.
USC recruiter Ellis Johnson has talked with Lipsey on the phone about Floyd. Johnson scouted Floyd last spring.
"He has a long wingspan and comes off the corner well," Lipsey said of Floyd who had 17.5 sacks last season. "He's got to develop, get quicker and stronger."

Floyd also plays basketball, is agile and moves around well. He has good feet and plays some at wide receiver.
