Brent Venables offered Chaminade Madonna Prep rising junior outside linebacker Richard Yeargin in May.

"I know that Clemson is located in the heart of South Carolina, near Greenville. It's a good school, as far as athletics. I know Clemson is a good school for linebackers," he recently told CUTigers in a recent interview.

There is one factor in particular that has piqued Yeargin's interest in Clemson.

"[Venables], he specializes in sending linebackers to the NFL and making them All-Americans," he said.

A visit could be in the works.

"At the end of this month, I'll try to make it up to Clemson. If I do have a chance, I will," Yeargin said.

Tennessee, Ohio State and Florida are also potential visit spots. He visited Miami earlier this month.

The 6-foot-3, 205-pound prospect has also picked up offers from Wisconsin and Wake Forest. Several other schools are expressing interest and close to offering, including Alabama.
