DB Chris Hughes (6-0 210) of Mobile, AL says Clemson is likely his favorite right now. "It had been Florida up until about a week ago," he said. "I'm friends with Brandon Maye and he tells me what's going on at Clemson straight up. He tells me the good and the bad. The most important thing is he said he barely qualified for college and made the All-ACC Academic team. That tells me they help you in the classroom."
He has offers from Clemson, USC, Louisville, Ole Miss, Florida, Auburn, and Kansas State. He is also hearing from Miami, Notre Dame , Alabama, FSU, and LSU among others .
He visited Auburn and Alabama for their junior days and liked both. "Alabama is bigger and has more swagger but Auburn felt more comfortable to me," said Hughes.
Hughes had 118 tackles, seven for loss, three forced fumbles, and three interceptions returning one for a touchdown.
He said he is trying to get in contact with USC coaches to learn more about the school.
