QB Bo Baldwin of South Aiken was a recruiting mystery in his high school career. A physically imposing quarterback (6-6 231) with a big arm, Baldwin was set back by injuries and never became the hot recruiting target many expected.

USC offered him a grayshirt opportunity last summer but Baldwin did not accept that right away. And with the Gamecocks taking a quarterback for the 2014 class well after making the grayshirt offer to Baldwin, it opens up speculation as to just how much the Gamecocks want Baldwin, and vice versa.

Now, Clemson has entered the picture a little bit. Baldwin's brother will be at senior at Clemson in 2014 and a source said Clemson has offered him a preferred walk-on spot, something Baldwin is considering if he decides he wants to continue his football career.

This season Baldwin passed for 1285 yards and 11 touchdowns.
