Clemson continues to adjust its late-cycle recruiting strategy, and has extended an offer to another athletic defensive back.

T.J. Green, a 6-4, 200-pound safety/wide receiver from Sylacauga, Ala., is making an official visit to Clemson this weekend, where he'll join Marcus Edmond of Hopkins, S.C., who is expected to flip his commitment from N.C. State to Clemson.

Green, who has been committed to Alabama-Birmingham since November, was offered by Clemson earlier this week, and on Friday received an offer from Auburn. Prior to the final-week flurry, Green also had offers from California, Cincinnati, Troy, Southern Mississippi and Western Kentucky.

As a senior, Green had four interceptions and three kickoff returns for touchdowns.

Also making an official visit is defensive back Ryan Carter of Grayson High in Loganville, Ga. Carter is a teammate of Clemson running back commitment Wayne Gallman, and a former teammate of Tiger redshirt freshman quarterback Nick Schuessler. He does not yet have an offer from Clemson, but is likely to receive one this weekend. He currently has offers from Mississippi and East Carolina.

Also visiting Clemson are preferred walk-on targets Adrien Dunn, a defensive back/wide receiver from Daniel High in Central, S.C., Zach Riggs, a tight end from J.L. Mann High in Greenville, S.C., and Seth Ryan, a safety/wide receiver from Summit, N.J.

Riggs is the son of former Clemson star tight end Jim Riggs, while Ryan is the son of New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan. Ryan, who is visiting Clemson this weekend with his dad, also has a walk-on offer from Texas A&M.
