Nick Eason has accomplished a lot in the short amount of time that he has been a part of Dabo Swinney’s staff.
Eason brought in one of the best group of defensive tackles in the 2023 class, and for that effort the Tigers’ defensive tackles’ coach was named ACC Recruiter of the Year by 247Sports.
“Clemson defensive line coach Nick Eason came up big for the Tigers as Dabo Swinney and his staff need to reload a room that is losing a lot to the NFL Draft.“
“Eason went out and signed arguably the top defensive line haul in the country, beating out in-state Alabama for 247Sports Composite five-star Peter Woods, rallying to beat Penn State and hold off Tennessee for Top247 edge rusher Tomarrion Parker, winning out over Georgia for 247Sports five-star Vic Burley and also signing touted players in Stephiylan Green and AJ Hoffler.” –Steve Wiltfong
Three of the highest rated players in Clemson’s 2023 class were defensive tackles, with no player the Tigers signed ranking higher than Woods in the 247 Composite Rankings. Burley was the third highest rated player in the class, with Green being fifth.
Eason just finished up his first season on Swinney’s staff, after having spent the 2021 season as the defensive line coach at Auburn. From 2013-2020, Eason was an assistant at the NFL level, coaching with the Browns, Titans and Bengals.
