Sheldon Jeter

6-6 Sheldon Jeter of Beaver Creek, PA returned home today from an official visit to Vanderbilt.  He then met at his home with Wisconsin coach Bo Ryan and tonight he’ll meet with Vandy coach Kevin Stallings.  Penn State also has called him and wants him to come in for an official visit.  He’s not sure if he’ll do that since he’s been there three times.  He might just take another day visit there with his parents.  After the Penn State visit he will be ready to make his decision.  USC remains high on his list. 

6-8 Minda Kacinas of Lithuania is at USC today for the start of his official visit.  Kacinas is a player Frank Martin recruited while he was at Kansas State.  It’s possible he will commit while on his visit. 

6-3 Willie Moore of Cincinnati has narrowed his list to USC and Virginia Tech.  He will visit Blacksburg next week.  Moore signed with Duquesne in November but got a partial release after the coaching change.  He is blocked from signing with another Atlantic 10 team without sitting out a season. 

USC November signee 6-9 Tyrone Haughton of Miami said Wednesday he’s not yet been contacted by new Gamecock coach Frank Martin or any member of his staff.  Haughton said he remains in his mind committed to the Gamecocks and plans to be at USC in August. 

Football News:

OL Taylor Chambers of Irmo was at Clemson’s spring game Saturday and is feeling confident an offer from the Tigers could be in his future. “I got to talk a lot with coach (Robbie) Caldwell while I was up there and I’m feeling pretty good about it,” Chambers said. “He told me I’m becoming a top target of theirs. If I can go up there and perform like I know I can during their camp, I think they’re going to offer me.” As for the visit, Chambers in becoming more enamored with Clemson. “I’ve been there many times and each time I go, I like it more than the last time I was there,” he said. “I got a chance to look at the academics this time and I was impressed. Also, they have a great family atmosphere. I know that every college football team is a family, but they take it very seriously up there.” Chambers heads to Virginia this weekend and believes he could return with an offer. He plans to stop at Wake Forest on his way to UVA. The Deacons are his sole offer at this time. “I’m a 4.5 G.P.A student so I’m a candidate for a lot of Ivy League schools,” Chambers added. “I like them too just not as much as Clemson, USC and Wake Forest.” He did not name a leader.

DB David Kamara of Loganville, GA will join his teammate DE Robert Nkemdeche this weekend on a visit to Ole Miss. Both have been to Oxford before. Nkemdeche’s brother plays for the Rebels. In a couple of weeks, Kamara said he’s planning to make another visit to Clemson, and Nkemdeche might go with him. He also wants to get back to LSU in the summer. Clemson has been strong with Kamara and at one point was out front. But Kamara said there’s no clear leader with him right now. “Clemson is up there and I like them a lot,” he said. “Clemson, LSU and Ole Miss are all the same. I like different things about all three.” Kamara said he talks regularly with Clemson recruiter Tony Elliott. He wants to make a decision before his season.
