Clemson offers Lakeland's Pouncey

.Lakeland, Fla. offensive lineman James Pouncey has joined his twin brother LaShawn in building an impressive offer list this spring.

James has offers from Florida State, Nebraska, Miami, Florida, LSU, Clemson, LSU, Ole Miss, Southern Cal, Michigan and UCF.

The 6-foot-4, 270-pound guard/tackle prospect said Monday his loose approach to the game has given college coaches a lot to think about.

"My downfield blocking is really good," he said. "I make the game fun, too. I want to go out and be aggressive and hit people, and I do, but you can make it fun, too, and that's what I try to do."

Pouncey, who holds a 350-pound bench press max with a 420-pound squat max, lists his early favorites as Florida State, Florida, Miami, Ole Miss, Clemson and Southern Cal.

Pouncey echoed his brother's statements made earlier in the evening to Tigerillustrated.com when he said he would be attending the same school with his brother at the conclusion of the recruiting process.

James said he will take all five official visits later this year before going public with a final decision.
