New DT coach Nick Eason did an in-home with 2022 DT Caden Story on Monday night. Story is set to take an official visit this weekend and has one scheduled to Florida the following weekend. The Tigers are really in the driver's seat here and it would not be surprising to see the Florida trip get scrapped. The Gators have not even officially offered yet.

Dabo Swinney was in attendance for 2023 OL Monroe Freeling's basketball game on Tuesday night. New OL coach Thomas Austin also made the trip. Freeling was originally supposed to be at Clemson's Elite Junior Day on Jan 29, but scratched those plans and will now visit sometime in the spring. He visits Miami this weekend.

CB coach Mike Reed visited 2023 CB AJ Harris on Tuesday. While nothing is set in stone, don't be surprised if Harris isn't at Elite Junior Day. The coaches are also expected to stop in and visit 2023 QB Arch Manning and 2023 WR Noah Rogers.

DC Wes Goodwin and co-DC Mickey Conn stopped in and watched 2022 LB TJ Dudley and 2022 S Kylon Griffin in their basketball game on Monday night, Both are set to take official visits this weekend. It is the only visit Dudley has planned. Griffin will visit USC the following weekend.

Running backs coach CJ Spiller stopped in and visited in-state RB Jarvis Green. Green will visit Wake Forest this weekend. The Dutch Fork product is still flying under the radar for the most part but if his senior season comes close to resembling his junior season, watch out. Plans to visit Clemson this spring.
