It’s now a three-team race for the nation’s top outside linebacker prospect.
According to Josh Harvey-Clemons' grandfather, Woodrow Clemons, the Florida State visit was enlightening.
“Wow, we were not anticipating that,” Clemons said. “Florida State was very surprising. I know he loved the facilities, the coaches and that program is back on the rise. They have some great young players and there are great players in this class. I know we met the top quarterback in the nation (Jameis Winston). He was there. FSU just has so much to offer and the proximity to Valdosta is so nice.
“It’s a three-team race now.”
It was thought to be a tight, two team race between Georgia and Florida for the Harvey-Clemons out of Valdosta, Ga., but FSU made up a ton of ground over the weekend.
This week he has in-home visits with Georgia on Wednesday night, Florida State on Thursday afternoon and Florida on Thursday night. In fact on Thursday night Gator assistant coach Brian White is scheduled to speak at the team banquet. Harvey-Clemons will make his announcement on signing day.
“We are supposed to leave for our Louisville (Jan. 27) visit after the banquet,” Clemons said. “But we may cancel it. Either way, schools can’t contact us after this weekend, so we need to shut it down and figure out where he’s going to go to school.”
Harvey-Clemons, 6-foot-4 and 210 pounds, is the nation’s No. 17 ranked prospect in the ESPNU 150.
