Recruit Reaction: Clemson-Georgia Tech

Following third-ranked Clemson’s 26-7 win at Georgia Tech on Thursday night, The Clemson Insider reached out to a number of recruits for their reactions to the game.

Check out what some of Clemson’s commitments and targets had to say:



Chase Brice, QB, Loganville (Ga.) Grayson High – commit

“I thought the game was great! Clemson came out firing on all cylinders in the beginning and got up on them quickly, which took the life out of Tech.”

Baylon Spector, LB, Calhoun (Ga.) Calhoun High – commit

“I thought it was a great road win, and always good to get a good ACC game under your belt. But got to look forward on to next week as they plan for the biggest game of the year.”

C.J. Avery, S, Grenada (Miss.) Grenada High

“It was a great team win, but the defense played outstanding. Everyone did their job.”

Markaviest Bryant, DE, Cordele (Ga.) Crisp County High

“I think the defense looked aggressive.”

Amari Rodgers, WR, Knoxville (Tenn.) Knoxville Catholic – commit

“Defense played GREAT, and I think the offense finally got on the right page with getting more people active.”

Jordan Williams, DE, Virginia Beach (Va.) Cox High – commit

“It was a fantastic win. Defense played great! It looks like they are back in their groove.”

Tee Higgins, WR, Oak Ridge (Tenn.) Oak Ridge High – commit

“Heard Deshaun had a good game. Didn’t watch much of it because of school activity.”

Noah DeHond, OL, Hightstown (N.J.) The Peddie School – commit

“Defense played great as usual, and the offense looks like it’s getting back on track and starting to roll.”

Matt Bockhorst, OL, Cincinnati (Ohio) St. Xavier High – commit

“It was a great win on the road on national TV. I think that is the best they have looked as an entire team this year after some offensive struggles in the first couple games. That is the type of win that solidifies their position as a top-ranked team in the country.”
