Clemson's football coaching staff will play host to official visitors Shaq Lawson and Cordrea Tankersley this weekend, in conjunction with the N.C. State football game.

Both Lawson and Tankersley are attending Hargrave Military this semester, after signing with Clemson last February. Both anticipate enrolling in January and joining the Tigers for spring practice.

Several players committed to Clemson will also attend on Saturday, including Jadar Johnson, Ryan Jenkins, Dehaun Watson, D.J. Greenlee, Ben Boulware, Dane Rogers and Demarcus Robinson, who made his official visit last week. David Kamara, who de-committed from Clemson last week, will attend, accompanied by Grayson High teammate Ryan Carter.

Also visiting will be 2014 targets running back/defensive back C.J. Fuller of Easley, S.C., defensive tackle Dexter Wideman of Saluda, S.C., running back Donte Williams of Durham, N.C., and linebacker Raekwon McMillian of Hinesville, Ga., among others.

Greenlee and his junior teammate, 2014 Clemson commitment Jae'lon Oglesby, helped push Daniel High to the state 3A Upper State championship via a 35-6 victory over Chester Friday night.

Oglesby rushed for 201 yards and three touchdowns while the Daniel defense contained standout sophomore quarterback Tommy Sanders. The Lions will host Union County, which knocked off A.C. Flora 41-38 Friday, next week.

In high school games involving Clemson commitments last weekend:

Dorian O'Daniel rushed for 145 yards on 27 carries to lead Good Counsel (Olney, Md.) High to a 21-7 victory over St. John's. Good Counsel will play rival DeMatha Saturday night for the WCAC championship.

Dalvin Cook rushed for 164 yards on 11 carries in Miami-Central's 52-28 victory over North Miami Beach. He needs just 16 yards to go over the 1,000-yard mark for the season, while sharing backfield time with FSU commitment Joseph Yearby.

Jenkins had a touchdown reception in Lassiter (Marietta, Ga.) High's 34-6 win over Etowah.

Wayne Gallman scored a touchdown in Grayson's 42-13 victory over Brookwood.

Watson completed 17 of 36 passes for 222 yards and two touchdowns and also ran for 103 yards and a score in Gainesville (Ga.) High's 35-34 loss to Flowery Branch. Watson also had a four-yard touchdown reception.
