The nation's No. 14 offensive tackle, according to, will be in the house Saturday when Clemson takes on Wake Forest.

Antoine McClain, the 6-foot-6, 295-pound Anniston (AL) product, will unofficially visit Clemson.

What are the four-star recruit's thoughts going in.

"I'm looking for a Clemson win," McClain told Wednesday evening. "I'm going up there Friday night actually and will be there through the game. I'm looking forward to getting a chance to talk with the coaches and see everything there."

Who will he officially visit and when?

"My first one will be to Tennessee on December 7th, 8th and 9th," he listed. "Then I'm going to Auburn when I get back from the All-Star game in Orlando (on January 11th). Then I'm going to USC on January 19th, then to LSU on the 26th and my last one probably will be to Clemson or Alabama."

What does the Rivals250 member like about the Tigers and the rest of his finalists?

Clemson - "(Wide receivers) coach (Dabo) Swinney is a good guy. He's determined, straight-forward, has great character and is from Alabama, too. First of all I like their game day atmosphere - the tradition of running down the hill. It's loud there. I could get early playing time, hopefully start. From what I hear they have great academic support. Plus they have good coaches and a good atmosphere."
