Southern Alamance's Johnathan Lloyd was at NC State Sunday and he'll be one of NC's best for 2014.…
North Carolina athlete weighing options
Johnathan Lloyd of Southern Alamance High School [Graham] already has some pretty good options. He's picked up offers from Clemson, Florida, Notre Dame, Ohio State, South Carolina, Virginia Tech and all of the North Carolina schools.
Over the summer, he visited Ohio State, North Carolina and N.C. State.
"I was planning on going on some more, but I got really busy and haven't had a chance to really go out," Lloyd said in a recent interview with CUTigers.
The 6-foot 185-pound junior could play a number of positions at the next level, including quarter, wide receiver or defensive back.
"Right now, it's still kind of early. Most of [schools] say athlete," he said. "Notre Dame has said they offered me as a receiver. Carolina, as a receiver. Other than that, most schools are saying athlete. I haven't been titled yet."
Clemson offered in May.
"When I was a freshman, they came by the school, but I didn't see them or anything. They just kind of lost touch for a while, but they came by this spring and offered," Lloyd said.
He's still learning about the Tigers.
"I know coach [Dabo] Swinney is a solid guy. He's a good coach," Lloyd said. "I know they have a lot of great talent down there. My friend D.J. Reader went down there this year…I really don't know much because I haven't followed them closely or anything. Other than just seeing them play, I know they're good."
This fall, Lloyd hopes to visit Florida and Notre Dame.
He does not have a list of favorite schools, but would prefer to play on the offensive side of the ball.
"I'm going to look at how I fit, football-wise, what kind of offense they run, where I would be playing at, how long I would have to wait before I can play, if I can make an immediate impact, academics -- what I want to major in and just the student life," Lloyd said. "I just want to get a good feel and find the most comfortable place I can spend the next four years of my life."
Offensive line coach Robbie Caldwell is Lloyd's primary recruiter for Clemson.
As a freshman, Lloyd had 30 catches for 478 yards and 11 touchdowns. He also rushed 55 times for 327 yards and four scores.
