Donald picks up fourth offer

One of the top prospects in Tennessee in the Class of 2007 recently picked up his fourth scholarship offer from a major program.
Huntingdon (Tenn.) linebacker Chris Donald was offered by Clemson on Wednesday.
"They've got a pretty good school down there," Donald said. "I haven't visited that campus, but I hope real soon."
The Tigers join Tennessee, Ole Miss and Mississippi State in offering Donald.
The 6-foot-2, 205-pounder recently had a death in the family that has caused his recruitment to slow a bit, but he added that he planned to head to Knoxville to check out the Vols in the near future.
Donald, who rushed for more than 1,500 yards during his junior season, projects as a linebacker at the next level, a position he prefers to play.
"I'd rather go as a linebacker," he said. "But I'll play wherever they think I can help the team. If they want to try me as a running back, that's where I'll play."
In terms of favorites, Donald currently is wide open.
"I'm just trying to find the best fit for me," he said. "I want to go to a school where I can get an education and hopefully one that can help me get to a higher level."
Donald plans to make a decision prior to his senior season.
Vanderbilt, Stanford and Memphis have yet to offer Donald, but have been sending text messages and/or handwritten letters.
