5-star says he would 'fit in perfectly' at Clemson

Atlanta-Pace Academy five-star offensive guard Jamaree Salyer visited Clemson again on Friday to watch the Tigers’ spring practice and continue learning about the program.

It was his second visit in three months as he also attended Clemson’s elite junior day in January.

“It went great,” Salyer said of the visit during an interview with The Clemson Insider. “I loved it. I got to see spring practice and how those guys work, and it was great.”

Salyer, the nation’s No. 1 guard in the 2018 class, liked what he saw at the practice.

“It was intense and upbeat which is how I am at practice,” he said, “so I’d fit in perfectly.”

Cartersville (Ga.) five-star quarterback commit Trevor Lawrence and Franklin (Tenn.) four-star offensive tackle Max Wray, who recently de-committed from Georgia, took in Clemson’s practice Friday as well.

Salyer enjoyed their company and is beginning to build a relationship with them.

“Both are great players and have the chance to pace the programs they end up at,” he said.

Clemson strengthened its standing with Salyer during the visit.

“They are one of my top schools and have definitely earned an official visit from me,” he said.

Salyer is thought to favor Clemson and Georgia among his nearly 30 offers, while Ohio State and Stanford are firmly in the mix.

The nation’s No. 9 overall prospect in the 2018 class by Rivals and 247Sports said he plans to return for Clemson’s spring game on April 8.
