It has been a bumpy road for Jahmere Irvin-Sills. After backing out of an early commitment to Auburn when Gene Chizik and his staff were fired, the cornerback from Elkton (Md.) Eastern Christian Academy is trying to find a school that he is comfortable with.
"I have Clemson, Mississippi State and Tennessee in my top three right now," said 5-foot-10, 173-pound Irvin-Sills. "I want to take official visits first before I make my decision. They will probably be next week or the week after that.
"I don't know too much about Clemson and Mississippi State," he said. "I want to learn more when I go down there for a visit. I think I might be going to Mississippi State this weekend but I'm not sure."

Irvin-Sills' recruiting coach at Auburn was Tommy Thigpen who is now an assistant at Tennessee. Is that relationship with Coach Thigpen still intact?
"I really don't know the coaches at Tennessee all that well except for Coach Thigpen," he said. "I want to get down there and meet the other new coaches."
Very recently, Irvin-Sills said Ole Miss, UCLA, West Virginia and Auburn were some of his top schools. Why aren't these schools still in the mix and when will Irvin-Sills announce his decision?
"I lost contact with those other schools," said Irvin-Sills. "I'm not sure when I'll be making my decision."
Other than the visit to Mississippi State visit, Irvin-Sills does not have any other visits scheduled.
