The end of the recruiting process for OL Jake Fruhmorgen of Tampa is near and right now the decision is between Clemson and Florida. Fruhmorgen attended Clemson's junior day Saturday and stayed over to watch practice Monday before leaving Tuesday.

"He enjoyed it, they rolled out the red carpet," said Fruhmorgen's father John, a former lineman at Alabama. "We met the president of the school. We went to dinner Saturday night with Dabo (Swinney). We went to practice, which was the main reason went went up there, to see the culture of how they practice and the personnel. They are real short on tackles. It's a good fit from that end of it. Jack is long enough to play tackle."

"Everybody was really nice," Fruhmorgen continued. "He hung out a long with (GA) Dustin Fry and watched a lot of film with him. He met (commitments) Mitch Hyatt and Noah Green.

Fruhmorgen plans to make his decision within a couple of weeks and will hold an announcement at his school. He has been to Florida and the plan is for one more trip to Gainesville in the next week or so to watch a practice.

Alabama and Michigan made strong pitches for Fruhmorgen and LSU coach Les Miles talked to him recently on the phone. His father said he's ready to end all of the recruiting talk.

"He just needs to be comfortable and we've narrowed it down to those two I think. I think Jake wants to concentrate on his team and get the recruiting behind him. We were impressed by Clemson."

Fruhmorgen will graduate in December and enroll at his school of choice in January.

Can't speak to the situation at Florida, but Fruhmorgen has to see that we are stacked with Jr and Sr linemen and he has a chance to team up quickly with Hyatt as a peer and Crowder/Morris/Hearn/Falcinelli for a number of years. Could be the best situation for him.
