Nick Claxton, a 6-foot-10 forward out of Greenville has taken official visits to South Carolina, Georgia and Florida State. This weekend he will visit Baylor and the next weekend N.C. State to complete his official visits. All five schools remain in the hunt for Claxton, who plans to sign in the early period which begins Nov. 9.
Claxton's father said they hear regularly from USC coach Frank Martin, and he and assistant coach Matt Figger come up to visit with Claxton and watch him work out when they can. But that's the case with all the schools and Charles Claxton said no one has emerged as a front runner.
"All the schools are getting looked at," he said. "I'm not going to say which one is one, two, three, four or five. We're considering all the schools. All of the visits have gone well. Each school has their way that they want to use Nicholas and he's comfortable with each school. And any school he picks we would be comfortable with."
Mr. Claxton said his son might not announce his choice until the first day of the signing period.
