The 2014 group is heavy on defensive prospects, including defensive backs Quintin Turner and Wesley Green from Lithonia, Ga., C.J. Reavis from Chester, Va., Cameron Glenn of Stone Mountain, Ga., and Allen Artis from Marietta, Ga.; defensive linemen Zeek Rodney from Rock Hill, S.C., Lamont Gaillard from Fayetteville, N.C., K.J. Ford from Bluffton, S.C., and Messiah Rice from Orangeburg, S.C.

Also visiting will be tight end/defensive end Kalan Richie of Goose Creek, S.C., wide receiver Anthony Johnson of Rock Hill, running back Donte Williams of Durham, N.C., and linebackers Ray Tillman of Lithonia, Ga., and Cayson Collins of Charlotte, N.C.

Several 2015 prospects are also scheduled to be in attendance, including defensive ends Albert Huggins of Orangeburg, S.C., Andrew Butcher of Alpharetta, Ga., and Shameik Blackshear of Bluffton, S.C.
