With Josh Malone's commitment to Tennessee over Clemson on Wednesday, the Tiger coaching staff's focus turns to Trevion Thompson as they try to fill out their 2014 recruiting class with a fourth wide receiver.
Already committed to Clemson are projected early enrollees Demarre Kitt, Artavis Scott and Kyrin Priester, all of whom have signed financial aid agreements with the Tigers.
Clemson was the first school to offer Thompson, a former teammate of Tiger freshman safety Korrin Wiggins at Hillside High in Durham, N.C., more than two years ago.
Since then he's piled up offers from most of the nation's top programs, and like top-rated linebacker Raekwon McMillan, his decision may have come down to a Clemson vs. Ohio State duel.
Thompson has scheduled his official visit to Clemson on January 17. He visited Ohio State on Nov. 22.
He's rated as the nation's No. 2 wide receiver prospect by 247Sports and No. 4 by Scout.
Thompson will play in the Shrine Bowl of the Carolinas this month, and in the Semper Fidelis All-America Bowl in January.
Other uncommitted wide receivers with Clemson offers include top-rated Malachi Dupree of River Ridge, La., Myles Autry of Norcross, Ga., and Moral Stephens of Perry, Fla.
Scott, from East Lake High in Tarpon Spring, Fla., is rated as the nation's No. 10 wideout by ESPN.
Kitt, from Sandy Creek High in Tyrone, Ga., is rated No. 12 nationally by ESPN and No. 8 by Rivals.
Priester, who is attending Fork Union Military this fall, was rated as the No. 20 wideout in the 2013 recruiting class by ESPN. During his junior and senior years in high school he caught 87 passes for more than 1,600 yards.
