Clemson’s next home game Nov. 7 against Florida State will attract some of the top prospects left on the 2016 recruiting board. One of those is defensive back Myles Dorn of Charlotte.
It will be his first trip to Death Valley for a game, though he visited the campus last year. Danny Pearman is his Clemson recruiter, and he’s in regular contact with him and with secondary coach Mike Reed.
“We talk every week, just getting to know each other a little more,” Dorn said. “We’ve been talking about getting me up to campus. I know the atmosphere is going to be crazy especially when they play someone like Florida State. I want to see how they coach and see how their players are at game time.”
Dorn has taken official visits to West Virginia and NC State and is slated for an official visit to North Carolina Nov. 14. He’s not sure about his final two official visits. He doesn’t have a favorite and is looking at a December decision because he’s graduating early.
This season Dorn has between 30 to 40 tackles and 3 interceptions.
▪ South Pointe DB Nick McCloud will visit NC State on Saturday for the Clemson game.
▪ DE Tony Clayton of Vienna, Ga., committed to Florida on Wednesday. Clemson and USC had recruited him as well at one point during the year.
▪ Ninety-Six HS sophomore infielder Chad Fairey made a commitment to play baseball at Clemson Wednesday, according to DiamondProspects.com. He’s the third commitment for the 2018 class, all from the state.
