If Jake Fruhmorgen makes it to the Upstate for Clemson's Orange-White spring game on Saturday, chances are that he'll already be a Tiger.

The highly-coveted offensive tackle from Plant High in Tampa, Fla., will reveal his college choice on Thursday during a ceremony at his school.

It's apparently down to Clemson vs. Florida for the 6-5, 280-pound Fruhmorgen, who recently wrapped up his recruiting visits with a trip to Michigan.

Fruhmorgen is rated as the nation's No. 4 offensive tackle by 247Sports, No. 7 by ESPN, and No. 10 at his position by both Rivals and Scout.

Clemson is hoping to add him to a 2015 offensive line recruiting class that already includes the nation's No. tackle prospect in Mitch Hyatt of Suwanee, Ga., and Boiling Springs, S.C.'s Noah Green, who recently earned the distinction of becoming the first offensive lineman invited to Nike's 'The Opening.' Rivals ranks Green as the nation's No. 36 offensive tackle.

Fruhmorgen's father, John, told The State's Phil Kornblut that his son has dropped Michigan from consideration.

"He talked to (Florida) coach (Will) Muschamp today," John Fruhmorgen told The State. "Coach Swinney wanted to talk to him but we couldn't get ahold of him. We've got to call back. He's really torn between both schools. They've both got their pros and cons. I think the stability is really good at Clemson. Being close to home at Florida is good. He hasn't come out and said he's 100% either way but I think he's close."

Both Clemson and Florida will hold their spring games on Saturday, and Fruhmorgen plans to attend the game of the school he chooses on Thursday.
