Clemson's next commitment?

One of the top athletes from North Carolina made a trip to Clemson for the second time in two weeks on Saturday to attend Junior Day. Is a verbal commitment looming if the Tigers offer?

LB Ty Linton Profile

6-1, 210 pound prospect Ty Linton traveled to Clemson on Saturday along with his father.

"I enjoyed it," he told CUTigers.com after the visit. "It went well. I met with coach Leggett the week before. I got to meet with coach Swinney and coach Pearman on Saturday. Overall it went good.

"My dad came with me too. He loved it. I caught the baseball game. When I was down the week before I saw the campus."

The Clemson coaching staff did not offer, but to gave some positive feedback during the visit.

"I got positive feedback from the visit. They said they are very interested. They said they will be in touch about an offer. Coach Pearman said he is really interested in me," said Linton.

The two-sport standout also maintains he would like to play both sports wherever he attends college.

"Coach Swinney and coach Leggett are both very supportive of me playing both sports," said Linton.

If the Tigers decide to offer there is little doubt where the Charlotte Christian standout will play.

"If Clemson offers for football and they give me a chance to play both it is really a no-brainer for me. I would commit right then," said Linton.

Don't be surprised if that commitment comes sooner rather than later.

"I defintely would like to make an early decision if I get the right offer. I want to get it done before my senior season," said Linton.

The visit tour continued on Sunday for the rising star.

"I am actually at Duke right now and I was at N.C. State earlier today," he said.

Several teams have already offered the talented linebacker.

"I have offers from Wisconsin, West Virginia, Miami of Ohio, Illinois and Duke," he added.
