RB Shon Carson (5-9 195) of Lake City spent most of Saturday at Clemson for the Tigers' junior day. "He had a good time," said his coach Justin Gentry. "He got to go and see the academic part of it which he hadn't seen yet. It was just the whole scene he didn't have a clue about. He was very impressed with that end of it. And he talked with coach Swinney."
Carson also stopped briefly in Columbia for a photo shoot at USC. Gentry said Carson plans to return to USC for a spring practice.
Carson has offers from USC, Clemson, North Carolina, East Carolina, Florida State, Tennessee, Alabama and Southern Cal. Carson is not indicating a favorite.
