RB Ben Axon (6-1 200) of Bradenton, FL has been committed to Clemson since June, but that committment is on life support following the resignation of Tommy Bowden. "I wasn't shocked," Axon said. "Clemson has high expectations. You've got to take care of business. I'm let down by the coaching staff. I don't think coach Swinney will be back. I think they are going to clean out the whole offensive staff. Right now, it's not looking pretty for me and Clemson. I haven't gone public to say I'm uncommitted yet because I have a good relationship with all the coaches, especially coach Scott and coach Powell. Coach Scott told me to wait it out about two more weeks. I'm going to wait for two more weeks and see how things work out."
Axon said he talked with Brad Scott yesterday. He is scheduled for an official visit to Clemson November 15th. He also has a visit set with West Virginia December 13th. Axon said he's heard from USC recruiters David Reaves and Robert Gillespie and he plans to set an official visit with the Gamecocks. He's also looking at Purdue, South Florida and Florida for other possible visits. "I don't have a favorite right now," Axon said.
Thru six games, Axon has rushed for 500 yards and nine touchdowns.
