Tigers pick up tight end commitment
Clemson's second major junior day for the 2013 recruiting campaign Saturday netted one commitment in tight end Jordan Leggett of Navarre, Fla.
The 6-6, 225-pound Leggett, who is Clemson's second commitment for the 2013 class, also had offers from South Florida, Central Florida and Louisville. Last season, Leggett caught 48 passes for 603 yards and three touchdowns.
The Goose Creek state championship football team was honored last Thursday at the State House, and while in Columbia the team stopped by USC for a closer look.
The Gamecocks are one of the strong players for the Gators' top prospect, Tramel Terry, who talked to some coaches while at USC.
"They talked to me for a little bit, just about how I would be a first rounder like (Stephon) Gilmore," he said.
Terry had previously planned to go to Clemson's junior day Saturday but did not make it. USC, Clemson, Florida and Georgia are four strong schools with him.
Clemson had over 100 prospects on campus Saturday for junior day, including highly touted defensive end Robert Knemdiche of Logan-ville, Ga.

Defensive end Jaylen Miller of Gaffney also attended Clemson's junior day. Miller has offers from North Carolina, Duke, Furman and Alabama State. He said he's not hearing much from USC.
USC quarterback target Christian Hackenberg of Fork Union, Va., committed last week to Penn State. He was the first quarterback offered by Gamecocks recruiter GA Mangus for the 2013 class.
