Huge 6'6" OL Richard Gouraige names clear leader in his recruitment, three more in contention

Some heavy hitters make the list.

Four-star offensive lineman Richard Gouraige would be a huge asset for anyone in the 2018 recruiting class. The 6'6", 280-pound OT is No. 4 at his position according to 247Sports and is the No. 10 recruit in the state of Florida. He's going on some unofficial visits this spring and summer, and has actually already been on Clemson's campus.

He said he loved the campus and he liked his junior day visit so much that he's named the Tigers as his leader. "If I made a list right now, (Clemson) would be on the top right now," Gouraige said. "I loved it."

Gouraige is also considering Auburn, North Carolina and Florida as the primary contenders to land him after Clemson. He's got a scheduled visit to Auburn already in the spring and he intends to take his official visits in the fall before he makes a hard commitment.

He has almost 30 offers from schools and the 247 crystal ball has him heavily trending toward Clemson with an 88 percent chance of him signing with the school. He's also got offers from Alabama, Florida State, Georgia, LSU and Louisville among others.

Here are some of his highlights:
