With remaining spots scarce in Clemson's 2014 football recruiting class, the Tiger coaching staff is gearing up for one of its most important showcase events of the cycle this week, when more than 500 players gather for the second session of Dabo Swinney's high school camp.

Most of Clemson's 2014 commitments will be on hand this week, as well as a large number of 2015 and 2016 prospects.

The first session of Swinney's camp yielded six new offers and commitments from 2015 greyshirts J.D. and Judah Davis of Daniel High.

The Tigers lost out on one target on Monday, when Hope Mills, N.C. defensive back/receiver Jefferie Gibson announced for N.C. State over Clemson. He is being recruited as a wide-out by the Wolfpack and was recruited as a safety by Clemson. Earlier, the three-star prospect had eliminated North Carolina and East Carolina from consideration.

Also closing in on a decision is in-state linebacker Kendall Joseph of Belton-Honea Path. He plans to announce his decision a week from today, June 17, from among Clemson, Duke and Louisville.

Clemson currently has 10 commitments to its 2014 class, with room for about five more.

The group includes one quarterback, three running backs, an offensive lineman, two tight ends, a wide receiver and two linebackers.
