Culliver thinking de-commitment

Back in April, Rivals100 safety Chris Culliver committed to North Carolina State. The 6-foot-1, 190-pounder out of Garner, N.C. may be close to changing his decision with an upcoming visit to another ACC school.
"I've been talking about a de-commitment, but I'm not just going to do it for any other school," he said. "At the moment, I'm still committed to North Carolina State. It's a soft commitment and not 100%. I like them because they are close to home and I've gotten to know the coaches real well."
Rumors have surfaced that Culliver may be interested in switching his commitment to Clemson.

"I am planning to visit Clemson on Friday to see how everything is there," he said. "There is no idea exactly what I'll do, but if a commitment happens then it happens. I like Clemson's coaches and I know they were very impressed with my tape and they want me to come down to check out the schemes and depth charts."
No matter what Culliver does this weekend, he doesn't plan to have a final decision for a while.
"I'm going to choose the school I want to go to probably after the football season," he said. "I want to take a few other visits and see what schools will offer.
"I'm still hoping a couple programs will get more involved including Virginia and Virginia Tech. I like the tradition at both schools and the fact they have big-name players that are in the NFL. At the moment, Virginia hasn't shown much interest, but I've talked to coach O'Cain at Virginia Tech and my feeling is that if he wants me enough he'd get more involved. I think if those schools look at me more that could change things a lot."
One other school remains in the picture for the four-star prospect.
"I'd say Florida is in my top three with Clemson and North Carolina State," he said. "I'm planning to take a visit out there on July 21st. I like them because they have had some of the best recruiting classes in the last few years and coach Holliday has been great."
The No. 6 safety in the country registered an astounding 127 tackles, seven sacks and three interceptions last season.
