The big official visit weekend is here

Carl Lawson, Montravius Adams

This weekend, the Clemson football staff will welcome some of the nation's top prospects to Tigertown for the team's banquet weekend.

Ten Clemson commitments and three other prospects that are uncommitted or committed to other schools will be on campus Friday thru Sunday.

Auburn defensive end commitment Carl Lawson is slated to make his second trip to Clemson this weekend. The four-star prospect visited in November for the South Carolina game.

Along with Clemson and Auburn, Ole Miss and North Carolina remain under consideration by the No. 7 defensive end in the class of 2013.

Making his third visit to Clemson, North Carolina defensive back commitment Korrin Wiggins will be on campus.


Five-star defensive tackle Montravius Adams headlines this weekend's vistors in Clemson.
Committed to the Tar Heels since February of last year, the Tigers offered Wiggins a few weeks after his pledge. The three-star prospect will also take an official visit to Ohio State.

The highest ranked prospect on the list of visitors is five-star defensive tackle Montravius Adams. Clemson, Georgia, Georgia and Florida are the four remaining schools under consideration.

Florida hosted Adams for an official last weekend. Following the Clemson trip, he'll visit Alabama. Georgia has the final official set for the last weekend of the month.

Clemson has been considered the longtime favorite but a late push from Georgia has made the competition a little bit tighter.

To changes were made to the list of guests on Thursday. Marquez North cancelled plans to take an official to Clemson. He's not expected to reschedule.

It appears that Tennessee and North Carolina are the final two schools on North's radar. Most believe he'll leave Charlotte for Chapel Hill later this year.

Tyrone Crowder, the only offensive line prospect still on the Clemson radar for quite some time now, has postponed his trip because his mother is under the weather.

A four-star guard, Crowder has narrowed his list down to Clemson and Georgia after eliminating North Carolina from contention. The edge is believed to lean in the Tigers' direction.

On the docket this weekend will be a tour of campus, including Clemson's West End Zone and Vickery Hall.

In addition, the prospects will take in Clemson's annual football awards banquet and the Clemson-Virginia men's basketball game at Littlejohn Coliseum.

Former Tiger great Brian Dawkins is also on campus this weekend, in conjuction with a new annual award given to a former Clemson student athlete.

Dawkins, who recently retired from the NFL after a long career with the Philadelphia Eagles and Denver Broncos, arrived in the Clemson area Thursday and will be on campus all weekend.
