Default Sunday morning update on John Simpson

All-American offensive lineman John Simpson is taking his official visit to Florida this weekend. We spoke with our sources in Florida last night and they tell us he is having a "good visit". The Florida coaches feel like they have a chance of landing Simpson. Florida is likely the biggest competition for the Tigers in what Clemson hopes is the last piece o the 2016 offensive class.

Simpson still has his official visit to Clemson scheduled so the Tigers will have their chance to close the deal.

Your staff does a great job on following these stories.
I have a question.
Do you or your staff ever go on a players Twitter page to see what he retweets or likes to get a sense of where the prospect may be leaning?

John Simpson has yet to retweet or like anything from a Clemson recruiting site or Coach.(I found one, when we wished him Happy Birthday)

He ALWAYS retweets or likes post concerning SC.

His background pic is of a BIG City, that tells me that he isn't drawn to the small town.

I may be wrong, but I don't think he signs here.

I think everyone needs to just let it play out. If he comes, he comes. At the end of the day, the kid has got to do what is best for him.

I dont' get a good feeling about him, but whether he signs or not with the Tigers, the Tigers will be just fine.

Everybody has said that he's a Clemson lock for months and the kid is probably just trying to create some drama.

If he signs with Clemson we'll greet him with open arms but if he doesn't he'll be forgotten in 2 months. Just they way of the recruiting world. I'm not going to twist his arm to come here if he does then fine but it takes a special young man to be a Clemson Tiger and sometimes guys just can't cut it. Every guy that signs here says that there is just something about Clemson but sometimes a guy can't see it and well its his loss.....

I'd love to have him but don't get the best feeling about landing him either. Maybe we could get him to ask Zack Bailey and Donnell Stanley how going to SC is working out for them.....
