Major talent visiting Clemson vs. Citadel
By Corey Dowlar
Clemson hopes to have a very productive visit weekend for their last home game of the season against Clemson at noon Satirday. Highlighted by five-star linebacker Raekwon McMillan, the expected list of recruits is filled with quality, and the Tigers hope that some of their commitments that will be attending will put in some work, too.
Raekwon McMillan (Hinesville, Ga./Liberty County): It's hard to imagine there is a bigger prospect left on the board for Clemson than McMillan. The country's top inside linebacker recruit is expected to be in Clemson this weekend for the Tigers' final home game. Clemson's staff has done a good job in the past with McMillan, being one of the first to identify him as a priority. Ohio State is in the thick of it for McMillan, too, so will this visit be enough for Clemson to give themselves an edge before he makes his decision?
Artavis Scott is planning to enroll early at Clemson.
Artavis Scott (Tarpon Springs, Fla./East Lake): Scott, a Clemson commitment, is seen as the next in line for the Tigers' recent run of exceptional receivers. The Tampa-area prospect has been solid to Clemson, giving no indication that he would entertain thoughts of other schools vying to change his mind. He will enroll early at Clemson, and because of the jump start and his ability, Scott could make an early impact.
Josh Malone (Gallatin, Tenn./Station Camp): Clemson has some work to do here. Malone is one of the top receiver prospects who that hasn't made a decision. In-state Tennessee is thought to be the leader at the moment, but Florida State and Georgia are right there, too. Malone traveled to Clemson for the first game of the season to see the Tigers beat Georgia. The four-star prospect has already taken official visits to Florida State, Georgia, Ohio State and Tennessee.
Deshaun Watson (Gainesville, Ga./Gainesville): Serving as Clemson's bell cow, Watson committed to Dabo Sweeney and his staff early in the process and has never wavered. He is ESPN's No. 1 dual-threat quarterback prospect and checks in at 6-foot-3, 190 pounds. Watson was heavily pursued by Auburn and Florida State even after his commitment to Clemson. He is seen as a direct replacement to Tajh Boyd when he comes of age for the Tigers.
Chris Register (Greensboro, N.C./Dudley): A four-star linebacker, Register has been committed to the Tigers since late May. The 6-foot-3, 230-pound prospect has good size and could be able to contribute early. During the process, Register earned offers from Auburn, Kentucky, Indiana, Miami, North Carolina, North Carolina State and Tennessee. Clemson was the first team to offer.
Demarre Kitt (Tyrone, Ga./Sandy Creek): Kitt is another part of a very solid offensive group coming to Clemson in this 2014 class. The ESPN 300 wide receiver also committed to the Tigers in late May among heavy interest from across the Southeast. Some of his offers include Alabama, Auburn, Georgia, Michigan, Nebraska, North Carolina, Ohio State, Oklahoma State, Oregon, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, UCLA, USC and Vanderbilt. Kitt has taken several unofficial trips to Clemson this season.
