Junior ATH Korey Charles (5-11 164) of Tallahassee visited Clemson earlier in the summer and is intrigued by the Tigers. Clemson is one of several schools to offer Charles and sees him filling the roll of a former Florida-native that wore the orange.

"Coach (Jeff) Scott and I have talked some about where they see me," Charles said. "He told me they see me at wide receiver...sort of in that playmaker role like (Sammy) Watkins."

Charles, who spent most of his time on defense as a sophomore, does not mind switching sides of the ball.

It doesn't really matter to me that much," he said. "If that's where they want me to play, I'm fine with that. "I really liked Clemson a lot. I liked their campus and the vibe. I could see myself playing there."

His other offers include Florida State, Wisconsin, North Carolina, LSU, Miami, Ohio State, Ole Miss, Penn State, Mississippi State and Louisville. USC has shown interested and invited Charles to a camp.

Charles had 89 total tackles, one for loss, one interception and a forced fumble last season. He had over 100 yards rushing on just three attempts and matched the feat in receiving yards with just three receptions. He does not have any favorites.
