Tigers Looking to Texas for Bandit End

The Clemson Tigers are looking for at least one more Bandit in this year's class, and they are battling three other schools for a 4-star defender from the Lone Star state. CUTigers.com brings you the latest in another recruiting update.

DE Billy Chavis Profile

Billy Chavis, a 6-5, 225 pound defensive end prospect from Westbrook, Tex. recently returned home from an official visit to Iowa.

"It was fun. It was better than what I thought it would be. I enjoyed myself," Chavis told CUTigers.com in a recent interview. "I would rate it a 10."

Three official visits remain for the talented athlete.

"I am going to visit Clemson, Missouri and Texas A&M. I am going to visit Clemson on January 12. I am going to visit Missouri on January 5th and Texas A&M on January 19," he said. "Right now I do not have a favorite. Not yet. I am going to take all of my visits before I decide."

Clemson assistant Chris Rumph is working hard to get the prize recruit to Clemson.

"They are just talking about getting me there for the visit. I actually just spoke with coach Rumph. They are looking at me for the bandit position," he said.

Will distance be a factor now that Texas A&M has joined the battle for Chavis?

"No, distance is not a factor. Early playing time will be very important," replied Chavis. Now that the season is over for Westbrook (Tex.), Billy will be spending a lot of time in the weight room.

"I am getting ready to start lifting," he added. "I will be lifting and working out a lot."
