DB Mook Reynolds (6-0 175) of Greensboro, NC has been committed to Virginia Tech since February but the offers continue to roll in. Last week he landed one from Clemson and that immediately peaked his interest in the Tigers.
"It was shocking, honestly," Reynolds said. "I've talked to coach Reed. I'm still with Virginia Tech but I'm going to take a visit and see what Clemson has to offer." No visit for that date has been set.
The Tigers are looking to at another corner to the 2015 class after losing Juwuan Briscoe to a decommitment and Reynolds is one Reed has had his eye on.
"He said he just likes my style of play and everything I bring to the field, and the leadership I have," Reynolds said. "He likes how I go out there and lead."
Never miss a local story.
Reynolds has never visited Clemson and is looking forward to that opportunity later this month.
"I've heard nothing but good things about the place, that's why I'm interested."
Reynolds said he will also set official visits to Virginia Tech and Tennessee. He has been to both unofficially. He will graduate early so he plans to make a final decision in December.
Reynolds plays multiple positions for coach Johnny Roscoe. Last season he had 80 tackles with 13 for loss and 3 interceptions. He also caught 46 passes for 639 yards and 12 touchdowns and rushed for 234 yards.
