Marlboro County LB Lateek Townsend (6-3 207) was once considered a lock for Clemson. And he may still be though he refuses to publicly acknowledge anyone is out front for him right now.
"Most people do think I'm going to Clemson," Townsend said. He talked with Clemson recruiter Kevin Steele last week. Townsend has a top group of Clemson, USC, Florida, Southern Cal, LSU and Tennessee.
His last visit was to Tennessee late last month for a three day camp. He said Southern Cal and Florida continue to recruit him hard. "Both talk to me like they've got me," he said.
He's not decided on his official visits and he will announce a choice at the Army All American Game in January.
