Among the standout signal-callers at the Byrnes 7-on-7 competition Friday was 2019 T.L. Hanna quarterback Alex Meredith.
Meredith showcased a good arm and consistently threw the ball with accuracy and touch.
The Clemson Insider was on hand for the event and caught up with Meredith, who said he was pleased with his performance.
“I think I’m playing well,” Meredith said. “I feel like the ball’s coming out of my hand well. The receivers are getting open and making my job easy, so everything’s working together.”
Meredith has a busy week lined up. He is camping at Coastal Carolina on Sunday, Elon on Wednesday and Troy on Friday.
The 6-foot, 180-pounder also attended the Dabo Swinney Camp in June.
“Great competition,” Meredith said of the camp. “I love (quarterbacks) coach (Brandon) Streeter. I threw with Hunter Johnson and Emory Jones. Those guys were really good competition, and I loved the atmosphere at Clemson.”
Meredith heard from Clemson defensive coordinator Brent Venables, who was at the 7-on-7 watching Daniel, that he impressed Streeter at Clemson’s camp.
“I actually talked to coach Venables earlier (at the 7-on-7),” Meredith said, “and he said that coach Streeter said that I spun it well at the camp and he really liked me, so that’s always a good thing.”
Meredith likes Streeter, too.
“He’s a great guy, really knows what he’s talking about,” Meredith said. “I have to continue building a relationship with him, and the offense that he runs is great. I think it fits me well.”
What would it mean if Clemson eventually offered?
“It would mean the world,” Meredith said. “It would be great. Living about 15 or 20 minutes away, a Clemson offer would be awesome.”
As Meredith prepares for his sophomore season, there are a few accomplishments he would like to achieve.
“I want the team to win a state championship,” Meredith said. “I want to continue seeing the recruiting process, and hopefully an offer will come. I would like to throw for 4,000 yards and hopefully 1,000 yards rushing. That’s something I’d like to do.”
