Jordan Allen has now made two game day visits to Clemson this season.
After visiting for the overtime loss to Florida State, and picking up an offer while in town, Allen returned for Clemson’s big win over Notre Dame last weekend. That makes three trips since the summer, as Allen also worked out at Dabo Swinney’s high school camp in June.
The 3-star speedster, out of Buford (Ga), is one of just four wide receivers in the 2025 class to have picked up an offer and with each trip, Allen says he continues to just feel the love from the Tigers’ coaching staff.
“It was just the same vibe, the same energy,” Allen told All Clemson Tigers. “Just lots of love just since I stepped foot into the facility. Just showing love, talking to you, chopping it up with all the coaches on the staff. And then there’s the environment. It’s all you want.”
And just like for the overtime loss to Florida State, Allen was equally impressed by the environment in the stadium. The only difference was this time Clemson was able to come away with a win in a marquee matchup.
“It was electric,” Allen said. “Coming in some games haven’t went the way that they wanted this year and this game was an opportunity for them to make a statement and show everybody who Clemson really is. And they did that. Huge win.”
Auburn, Tennessee, Georgia, UCF and North Carolina have also gotten visits. He has return trips set for Georgia and Tennessee, meaning he will have taken two game day visits to those schools, just like he has with Clemson.
As for what keeps drawing him back to Dabo Swinney’s program, it is that culture that you so often hear about. Allen loves how the coaching staff always makes him feel wanted.
“Just the love and just the interest they have shown,” he said. “The connections that I’ve made and the relationships that I’ve built. Really, it’s a homey feeling. And they want me to be a part of the program.”
Tyler Grisham is leading the charge in Allen’s recruitment and the two have been working towards building a relationship since the summer.
“He has been in contact heavy,” Allen said. “We chat about small things like school, me at Buford, Clemson games coming up and like how they’re doing and how it’s going to translate. Things like that.”
On the field, Allen also sees himself fitting in nicely with Garrett Riley’s offense. He sees what Tyler Brown has been able to accomplish in a short amount of time and loves the fact that Riley makes a concerted effort to get the ball into the hands of the playmakers.
“I see myself fitting in really well in that offense,” Allen said. “Like how to do right now with Tyler Brown. I can really see myself in that position. They get the ball to their playmakers and just let them do what they do.”
Right now, Allen is hoping to have a decision made before the start of his senior season. And while NIL has become a focal point when it comes to recruiting, Allen says that isn’t him. He is looking for culture, first and foremost, and the rest of it will take care of itself.
“I don’t really buy into the NIL thing right now,” he said. “I’m really just looking for a school who wants me for me. Who is as interested in me as much as I’m interested in them. The relationships and the coaching and program.”
