The Clemson Tigers have officially expanded the offensive line board, handing out a new offer over the weekend.
2024 prospect, Eagan Boyer (William Amos Hough, Cornelius, N.C.), announced the offer via social media on Friday. The 6-foot-8, 270-pound offensive lineman now has close to two dozen offers in total, with Virginia Tech, Auburn, Tennessee, Wisconsin and Michigan being some of the schools that have been recruiting him the hardest.
However, Boyer, who is a teammate of current Clemson commit Nolan Hauser, told All Clemson that the offer from the Tigers absolutely pushes Dabo Swinney’s program up towards the top of the list.
“They jump up there for sure,” Boyer said. “You can’t ignore how successful they have been.”
The fact that his style of play fits what new coordinator Garrett Riley likes to do on the offensive side of the ball had Boyer thinking an offer from Clemson might come at some point, he just wasn’t sure when.
“I wasn’t sure,” Boyer said. “My assistant coach at Hough told my dad he thought they would offer soon with the new offensive coordinator coming in and how I would fit with his style of play but I didn’t know when.”
Boyer visited Clemson twice last season, attending the early season win over Louisiana Tech and then the regular season finale against the rival Gamecocks. Both visits made an impression.
“You just know you’re going to get developed as a player and a person first of all,” Boyer said. “Plus, it’s a big-time program with a great fan base.”
The big offensive linemen has a lot of visits planned for the spring, but he is hoping to also squeeze one in to Clemson. Boyer is anxious to see OL coach Thomas Austin’s coaching style.
“I have a lot planned, but I definitely want to get to practice and see how coach Austin coaches his guys and see what that’s like,” Boyer said.
As for a decision, expect one at some point in the summer. Boyer would like to have the recruiting process wrapped up by the time his senior season starts.
“I’m going to have a decision made by end of June hopefully,” he said. “I want to go into my senior season knowing where I’m going.”
When it comes to making that decision, Boyer is looking for a school that offers strong academics, and of course one with a tradition of winning.
“I’m going to go where I feel like I’m going to get the best education that fits what I want and where I’m going to get developed the best as a player,” Boyer said. “Winning is also really important to me.”
