Four-star Miami (Fla.) Edison offensive lineman Jacky Claude says he may have to reshuffle some of his official visits due to the success of the team this season.
“The way it looks right now, I may have to reschedule Ohio State and N.C. State,” he said. “I was supposed to go to those two on Dec. 5 and Dec. 12, but that might interfere with us in the playoffs if we keep winning. I definitely want to visit those schools, though. It will probably be in January now.”
That would make for a busy month for Claude (6-4, 290, 4.9), the nation’s ninth-rated guard. He has visits scheduled for Auburn (Jan. 16) and Florida State (Jan. 23) already, and he’d like to squeeze in a trip to Rutgers.
One of his other leaders, Miami, probably won’t get a visit, but that’s not a negative issue.
“Nah, I like them a lot,” he said. “If signing day was right around the corner and I had to choose now without seeing any of the other schools, I’d pick UM. I already know a lot about them and feel real comfortable about their program. I don’t need to visit them.”
In a previous Rivals.com interview, Claude said the school which offered him along with teammates Marc Dile (OL) and Richard Clebert (DT) would most likely get his signature in February.
“Nobody’s taken all of us yet,” he said. “But that’s still out there. If it doesn’t happen, it doesn’t happen, you know? I’ll find the place where I feel the most comfortable.”
Claude has certainly made his quarterback feel comfortable this season. He said he just set a school record for going two consecutive seasons without surrendering a sack. He’s also dished out 30 pancake blocks through 12 games.
Edison (10-2) takes on St. Thomas Aquinas on Friday in the second round of the playoffs.
