Default Monday lunchtime update on Cain and McCloud

We wanted to pass along the latest information we have on five-star wide receivers Ray Ray McCloud and Deon Cain.

As we reported Sunday both took official visits to Auburn over the weekend and the Clemson staff was aware of the visit ahead of time.

We've checked with a number of sources since news broke on Sunday night.

We're told that Clemson has had good communication with both prospects and their parents over the past 36 hours. The Clemson staff is doing everything possible to make sure both five-star wide receivers sign with Clemson on Wednesday.

According to a source in Florida who's familiar with their recruiting, it comes as no that Cain wanted to take another visit just to “have some fun." Remember, he visited LSU unofficially during the season.

Also, McCloud visited Florida on several occasions during the season, but even after those visits, both remained firm with their commitments to Clemson.

We've also been in contact with a source close to the Auburn program who believes that those Tigers may not be in position to take two more wide receivers. So we asked if there's a chance that Auburn would take Cain as a quarterback. The source believes Cain would be a wide receiver take, not a quarterback.

Auburn lost two receivers from last year's team (Quan Bray and Sammie Coates) and they've already got a commitment from JUCO wide receiver Jason Smith, who could also get a look at quarterback.

The latest word we had is that Clemson was hoping to have Dabo’s Signing Day press conference at 2 p.m. Wednesday. That is usually scheduled after all of the faxes have come in to Clemson. The Tigers are hopeful that Cain and McCloud will sign some time Wednesday morning. We may know more later today about that timing.

We have some other feelers out for more information on this situation so stay tuned to TCI for the latest. We will bring you the latest as we have it.

An interesting development to pass along: USF has added a commitment from Nate Ferguson, a 2015 cornerback from the Tampa area who's buddies with McCloud and Cain. Apparently, Ferguson was also in Auburn over the weekend, but never picked up an offer.

Ferguson, a former Eastern Michigan commitment, was offered by USF this morning and he committed on the spot.

With that, the hot rumor on Twitter among reporters down in that part of Florida is that McCloud could end up flipping to USF.

Really? A USF rumor is hardly worth mentioning, they will both be Clemson Tigers OFFICIALLY come Weds. Some things get looked into way to hard.

The rumor mill is gonna be spinning faster than a speeding bullet until Weds. Or until they say something

I am thinking, that these kids just are enjoying the last bit of the process, taking the chance to hang with friends and visit places...
for us fans it gives us some drama leading to NSD.

I still think they both will sign with Clemson Tigers

Did Ray Ray ever take a visit to USF?

If he flipped to USF I'd question his sanity. More then likely he'd be playing for a new coach within a year(2/10 and 4/8 under Taggert). Not to mention USF doesnt have 1 offensive player in the NFL.

According to Kornblut, Cain's high school coach said that both are 100% committed to Clemson, and Cain will sign at 1:30 PM ET at his high school.

Well a few weeks ago I said (tongue in cheek) the recruiting segment was a snoozer and we are all awake now! I hope they are just having a bit of fun but still If either are not sure about Clemson then flip wherever you want. Not a fan of flippers out or in. I bet ESPN who is sending someone to Clemson for NSD is salivating over the this!

Cain's coach talked to Cain's mother. The both refers to Cain and his mother, not McCloud.

The quote refered to both, Korncoot tried to make up crap again.
"She said it was a good visit, not anything much different from other visits," Roberts said. "At the end of the day, they are still 100% Clemson. They took the trip because it was the last opportunity to visit outside of Clemson

Makes more sense to me for her to speak for her and her son. What place does she have to speak on McCloud's behalf?
