Clemson dream school for '19 wide receiver


Grayson (Ga.) 2019 wide receiver Xyre Wilson visited Clemson on Aug. 20 with some of the other top prospects in his class from Georgia.

The Clemson Insider recently caught up with Wilson, who really enjoyed the visit and hopes to make it back to Clemson during the season.

What is he looking forward to seeing when he returns?

“The practices,” Wilson said. “I really love Clemson — my dream school — and the new facility (Clemson is) building for the players.”

Grayson is coming off a hard-fought game against IMG Academy, which pulled away in the second half of last Saturday’s matchup for a 26-7 win.

Wilson said his team has responded to the loss with a good week of practice heading into Friday’s contest at McEachern (Ga.) High.

“We’re bouncing back this week,” Wilson said. “I thought my team played hard, but everybody missed some assignments. But that’s OK because we fixed them in practice this week.”

Wilson didn’t get many opportunities to catch the football against IMG, as Grayson stayed on the ground for much of the game. But Wilson was unselfish and did what he could to help his team.

“For the time I was in the game, I played hard,” Wilson said. “I blocked really good to make sure my teammates could get positive yards.”

The 6-foot, 165-pound sophomore enjoyed the experience of playing in a nationally televised game on ESPN2.

“It was very cool,” Wilson said. “Felt great to be out there.”

Along with Clemson, Wilson also visited Tennessee over the summer. He doesn’t have any leaders in his recruitment at this time.
