With the current dead period set to expire at the end of the month and the Clemson Tigers set to open spring practice on March 6, recruiting is about to pick up.
Looking to sign four offensive linemen this recruiting cycle, the coaches have already expanded the board, handing out two new offers since Friday.
The first went to Eagan Boyer (William Amos Hough, Cornelius, N.C.), who is a teammate of current Clemson commit, Nolan Hauser. The 6-foot-8, 270-pound offensive lineman now has close to two dozen offers in total, and told All Clemson that Virginia Tech, Auburn, Tennessee, Wisconsin and Michigan are some of the schools that have been recruiting him the hardest.
The offer from the Tigers does put Clemson squarely in the mix, and Boyer is hoping to fit a spring visit into what is already a pretty packed schedule.
“They jump up there for sure,” Boyer told All Clemson. “You can’t ignore how successful they have been.”
On Monday, 2024 OL Jac’Qawn McRoy (Pinson, Al) also announced an offer from Clemson.
The 6-foot-8, 365-pound prospect is regarded as one of the top tackles in the class and a Top 150 talent overall. Last month he named a Top 10 that consisted of Oregon, Tennessee, LSU, Kentucky, Miami, Florida, Arkansas, Auburn, Georgia and Ole Miss. No word yet on any future plans to visit.
We also now know that the Tigers will once again host official visits on the first weekend in June. 2024 LB Sammy Brown (Jefferson, Ga) confirmed to All Clemson that he has already scheduled a visit to Clemson that weekend, and that it will be an official.
The battle for Brown appears to be coming down to Clemson and Georgia, and the fact that the Tigers are getting Brown in on that weekend is significant, as the Dawgs will also likely hold a big official visit event the same weekend. Although, it is safe to assume that Brown would take an official to Athens at some point later in June, seeing as he is looking to make a decision ahead of his senior season.
Last year was the first year that Dabo Swinney hosted official visits during the summer, and the event was a rousing success, with the Tigers picking up a dozen commitments from players that attended.
