Dabo Swinney High School Camp: Saturday Observations

CLEMSON- Dabo Swinney’s high school camp is in full swing this weekend, with a morning and afternoon session taking place on Saturday.

As noted yesterday, there are easily more than 1,200 kids participating, with some notable names rolling through on Saturday.

I spent much of the morning watching the running backs. 4-star Gideon Davidson, who holds the only running back offer from the Tigers in the 2025 class, worked out again. Just as he did on Friday, Davidson just looks different. He has that “it” factor. It’s easy to see why he is THE guy for the Tigers at the position.

Another running back that caught my eye was 2025 in-state recruit Marquise Henderson. Outside of Davidson, I thought the 3-star Henderson was the best of the group.

4-star 2025 OL Brayden Jacobs, who already holds an offer, was back out there Saturday morning. Easily the best of the offensive linemen I laid eyes on during the early session. He just moves so well for a guy his size. He was still on campus for the afternoon session but only as a spectator. A 6-foot-7, Jacobs is a mountain of a young man.

5-star DE Ari Watford is another guy that really stands out. He already has an offer from Clemson and watching him work out it is easy to see why he is one of the top edge rushers in the 2025 class. He is extremely long and has that burst you love to see in a pass rusher.

During the afternoon session, I spent most of my time watching the quarterbacks. 4-star Antwann Hill Jr worked out, getting some special attention from not only offensive coordinator Garrett Riley, but Dabo Swinney as well.

Standing 6-foot-5, Hill is easy to spot. The dual-threat prospect is no doubt athletic and his passing skills were even better than the film suggests. He puts a really nice touch on his throws. Not a finished product, but there sure is a lot to like about the young quarterback. The Tigers have already offered two quarterbacks in the 2025 class, we’ll see if Hill also comes away with one.

Another quarterback that really stood out was 2024 in-state recruit Riley Scruggs. As one member of the coaching staff put it this afternoon, “that kid can spin it.” Scruggs doesn’t even have a profile on the recruiting sites, proving that not every kid always gets noticed by the services.

2026 WR Chris Henry Jr was the star among the receivers in the afternoon session. Notre Dame, Penn State, Ohio State and Tennessee are just a few of the schools to have already offered. He is the son of the late former NFL receiver Chris Henry and the stepson of Adam “Pacman” Jones.”

Henry is a legit 6-foot-5 and already has two dozen offers total.

Former wide receivers coach Jeff Scott was back on hand lending a helping hand on Saturday.
