Death Valley recruiting wrap up

First lets start this weeks recruiting brief with a list of offers Clemson has made in the state of Florida

Joe Mixon got an offer from Clemson's Chad Morris this week.

Clemson offers out in Florida

In my opinion Joe Mixon has the most impressive film on this list of new offers by Clemson. The tall shifty four star RB from the Bay Area in California I think will be a game changer wherever he goes.

The 6 foot 2, 195 pounders vision and cuts are excellent. He told me earlier this week he hopes to visit Clemson. Chad Morris made the offer to Mixon.

Mixon is the 247Composite No. 16 player in the state and No.15 ATH in the nation. My opinion is his stock rises this year.

His film as at the bottom of his bio, must see.

Dontavius Russell

At 6 foot 3, 300 pounds Russell is another massive defensive tackle from the state of Georgia. He's the 247Composite No. 13 player in the state and No. 10 DT in the nation. Clemson's defensive line coach Dan Brooks reached out to Russell and wants him to visit.

Wrap up from earlier this week

"The Clemson Tigers on Wednesday apparently made their intentions known they have strong interest in four-star defensive tackle Dontavious Russell of Carrollton (Ga.).

Dontavious Russell would like to visit the Tigers. "I just got off the phone with [Tiger defensive tackles coach Dan Brooks]," Russell told 247Sports early Wednesday evening. "He said I had an opportunity to play there and that I had an offer." That Clemson made the move is not a surprise.

The 6-feet-3, 300-pound Russell is among the most heavily recruited Georgia prospects in the class of 2014. He is the No.154 overall player and No. 10 defensive tackle in the 247Composite. Russell already has double-digit offers. He insisted Wednesday that no teams stood out yet.

As for Clemson, Russell said he is intrigued a little by the Tigers but admitted it's too early to tell whether they can be a factor in his recruitment. "Right now, I don't know much about Clemson," Russell said. "I like watching them play, but other than that I don't know a lot. Their games are always exciting to watch." According to Russell, Brooks told him he was impressed by his video highlights.

"He said he watched my film and liked some of the things I was doing," Russell said. "He was just telling me he wants me to come and visit Clemson whenever I can. I want to [visit] but I'm not sure when I'll have time." "Russell will visit Florida this weekend."

Keyon Brown

Keyon Brown is an athletic defensive end Clemson just offered.

The athletic defensive end from Florida is very quick and has great hands. He's the 247Composite No. 21 player in the state of Florida and the No. 10 WDE in the nation. This is another talented player the Clemson staff is in on for 2014.

"Clemson continues to work the Sunshine State hard. On Wednesday, another Tigers offer went out in Florida. For those keeping score at home, that makes 20 known offers there for the 2014 class. The latest offer went to Wauchula (Fla.) Hardee four-star defensive end Keyon Brown."

Anthony Moten

Moten is a 6 foot 4, 279 pound SDE from the talent rich St. Thomas Aquinas in Fort Lauderdale. Moten calls Florida his dream school but has not offer. Clemson now has an offer out to Moten. He is the 247Composite No. 23 payer in the state and No. 17 SDE in the nation.

Kentavius Street

Kentavius Street is set to visit Clemson next.

The 6 foot 4, 255 pound SDE from Greenville, NC visits Clemson next. Clemson hopes to make up ground on the athletic and quick defensive end. Street is the 247Composite No. 7 player in the state and No. 9 SDE in the nation.

Kentavius Street bio

Wrap up from earlier this week

Kentavius Street has never attended a game at Florida State.

Kentavius Street visits Clemson next. Right now, FSU leads. Never visited the school. Never met his primary Seminoles recruiter. But … FSU is the current leader for the four-star defensive end/tight end from Greenville, NC (J.H. Rose), and for that the Seminoles can thank Derrick Brooks, one of the program's most famous alums.

According to the 6-feet-4, 255-pound Street, Brooks was his favorite player growing up and he "watched his highlights relentlessly, when he was with the [Tampa Bay] Bucs." Because Brooks had played at FSU, that made Street a Seminoles fan."I grew up rooting for them," Street said. "I always wanted to play for them."

When FSU offered Street on National Signing Day, the country's No. 124 overall prospect in the 247Composite was excited to say the least. Recently, he has been able to bond with FSU assistant Billy Napier, albeit via telephone.

"I like everything about him," Street said. "He's outgoing. He reminds me of my coach back in high school. We've talked about six times. They kind of like me at linebacker and defensive end, a blend of both of them." Street hopes to visit the Seminoles in April.

He said FSU was "closely followed by Georgia right now." The Bulldogs offered Street on Tuesday afternoon, and that's another program he has followed for years. It was the offer that up to now has made him the most excited. Like with FSU, though, Street has yet to visit the Bulldogs. He hopes to get to Athens in May.

"I grew up in Georgia," Street said. "I was born there. I used to live in Douglas. I went to Coffee County. We moved here about a year ago. Georgia is my home state school." According to Street, Georgia assistant John Lilly is his primary recruiter for the Bulldogs. "They want me to play some tight end and some defensive end," Street said. "To be honest, I would rather play tight end. I like Georgia. It's close to home and it's part of the most dominating conference."

All told, Street claims 19 offers. Even though he said FSU and Georgia stand out, the fact he has visited neither one would indicate he is in the early stages of the process. According to Street, East Carolina, Virginia Tech and Clemson have been by his school the most.

He plans to visit both the Tigers and Hokies soon. "I'm going to Clemson on March 9," Street said. Street said he has "tons of interest" in the Tigers. "I'm going there for junior day," he said. "The thing I like the most is that they're very family-oriented. That's a major plus for me." Clemson assistant Dan Brooks has been to Street's school three times, Street said. "They really want me for outside linebacker and defensive end," Street said.

Clifton Garrett

Continuing it's national recruiting theme Clemson offered four star linebacker from Joliet, Illinois Clifton Garrett. The Illinois linebacker has offers from Clemson, Illinois, Florida, Arizona State and Ohio State.

Allen Artis

Clemson is the latest offer Allen Artis of Marietta, Georgia. Artis stock continues to rise as he now has offers from Clemson, Boston College, Louisville, Georgia Tech and Kentucky.
