The Tiger football coaching staff is investing the weekend in showing Clemson off to a large group of elite junior prospects, the first step of a process that will continue throughout spring practice and on into the summer with Dabo Swinney's camps.
Among today's visitors will be three players already committed to Clemson for the 2015 class - linebacker Tanner Muse of Belmont, N.C., defensive back Van Smith of Charlotte, N.C., and offensive lineman Noah Green of Boiling Springs, S.C.
Headlining the uncommitted prospects is Suwanee, Ga. offensive lineman Mitch Hyatt, who is rated as the No. 1 player in the nation at his position. The five-star Hyatt is the nephew of former Clemson defensive lineman Dan Benish.
With offensive linemen in high demand for Clemson's 2015 class, the coaching staff will also be spending time with four-star offensive linemen Zack Bailey of Summerville, S.C., Jake Fruhmorgen of Tampa, Fla., Austin Clark of Lexington, Va., and Bailey Sharp of Marietta, Ga.
A trio of quarterback prospects will be visiting, including recently-offered Tucker Israel of Orlando, Fla., Kelly Bryant of Wren High in Piedmont, S.C., and Lorenzo Nunez of Harrison, Ga.
Also taking a long look at Clemson will be 2015 running backs Mikell Lands-Davis of Douglasville, Ga., Reggie Gallaspy of Greensboro, N.C., and Ty'son Williams of Sumter, S.C. Also on the visit list is wide receiver Markeyvious Adams of Greenwood, S.C.
Visiting defensive backs include Stephen Griffin of Charlotte, N.C. - the son of former Clemson running back Steve Griffin; as well as Mark Fields from Charlotte, N.C., Marcus Lewis from Washington, D.C., and Kaleb Chambers from Greenwood, S.C.
A pair of in-state defensive ends will be on hand - Rasool Clemons of Aiken and LaSamuel Davis of Bamberg - as well as Darian Roseboro, a defensive end from Lincolnton, N.C.
Linebackers include Brian Bell from Valdosta, Ga., Chad Smith from Sterling, Va., and Jahvoni Simmons from Virginia Beach, Va. Two defensive tackles will visit - Paul McKiever of Batesburg, S.C. and Sterling Johnson of Cleveland, N.C.
