Dorman offensive tackle Jordan McFadden made the short trip from Roebuck, S.C., to Clemson for the Tigers’ game against Syracuse last Saturday.
The 6-foot-5, 280-pound prospect in the 2018 class currently carries offers from Charlotte, Duke, East Carolina, Indiana, Mississippi State, Syracuse and Wake Forest, and he is hoping for another one in particular.
“I would love to have a Clemson offer,” McFadden told The Clemson Insider.
Clemson is recruiting him, McFadden said.
“I had a lot of fun,” McFadden said of the visit. “It was an awesome experience, and the coaches showed a lot of interest.”
A tour of the campus and conversations with Clemson’s staff, especially offensive line coach Robbie Caldwell, highlighted McFadden’s visit.
“They said they liked me a lot,” McFadden said, “and they are going to keep watching me throughout the season.”
Heading into Dorman’s first-round playoff matchup at Nation Ford (Fort Mill, S.C.), McFadden has posted 20 pancakes on the season.
“I think I have pretty good feet and I’m pretty athletic, which will help me,” McFadden said when asked what he brings to the table as an offensive lineman.
McFadden said Virginia Tech is showing interest along with Clemson.
What does he like about Clemson overall?
“I just like their environment and how well the coaches treat me,” McFadden said. “It’s just a great place to be.”
McFadden has also visited Duke this season. He plans to go to Wake Forest and possibly Virginia Tech before returning to Clemson for the South Carolina game on Nov. 26.
