What stands out about the Tigers?

"They're as serious about grades as they are about football," he said.

Clemson defensive coordinator Kevin Steele, who hails from Dillon, runs the point on Park's recruitment.

While in Tigertown, Park said he spoke with "just about all" of the coaches.

He was in Columbia last week to watch the Gamecocks practice. Defensive line coach Brad Lawing serves as the recruiter for South Carolina.

Park currently holds offers from Clemson, N.C. State, Wake Forest and Coastal Carolina and claims no favorites.
