Clemson has jumped on the board with an offer to ATH Darius Lipford (6-4 210) of Lenoir, NC. Lipford has been committed to Duke since last winter but is accepting other offers and looking at other options.
He also has offers from USC, East Carolina, Virginia, Western Carolina and Elon. "I'm still comfortable with Duke but I want to get some visits in," Lipford. "I want to check them out."
He plans to visit Clemson, USC, Duke, East Carolina and Virginia this fall. He will camp at Duke and Virginia.
Lipford said Duke is still his favorite with USC, Clemson and Virginia all even behind the Blue Devils. "I don't know as much about those three," Lipford said.
Clemson likes him as a safety or outside linebacker and USC likes him as a receiver, safety or outside linebacker. He only caught 5 passes last season for 121 yards and 3 touchdowns in a run oriented offense. He had 135 tackles and 4 interceptions on defense.
