With a super frame and strong skills at a young age, Norcross (Ga.) Greater Atlanta Christian offensive tackle Myles Hinton looks like a national prospect in the making.
So, it’s no surprise the 6-foot-6, 323-pound freshman already has offers from Auburn, Georgia, Michigan, Michigan State, North Carolina, Ohio State, Tennessee and Virginia Tech in tow.
Clemson is among the many others showing interest, and last month, Hinton and his brother, 2019 defensive lineman Christopher Hinton — who is a national prospect himself — visited Clemson for its junior day on March 4.
“I really enjoyed the visit,” Myles told The Clemson Insider, “and I felt like everyone there just wanted to see you be great.”
The Hintons joined the large group of talented recruits on hand for the junior day in touring the new facility, and Myles feels it’s a place he could stay awhile.
“It’s very nice,” he said. “I like the fact that you don’t have to leave campus to kick back.”
Myles talked to a number of coaches during his time on campus, including area recruiter Todd Bates, defensive coordinator Brent Venables and offensive line coach Robbie Caldwell.
Caldwell went out of his way to speak more personally with Myles and his parents.
His father, Chris Hinton, played 13 seasons in the NFL with three different teams including the Atlanta Falcons (1990-93) and was a seven-time Pro-Bowler.
“They said that they would like us to come back up to a camp,” Myles said of what he heard from the coaches in general, “and the O-line coach pulled me and my parents aside and was like we love your boys.”
The Hintons visited North Carolina in March, as well, before traveling to Cal, Notre Dame and Stanford this month.
Looking back on his enjoyable experience at Clemson, Myles said an offer from the Tigers would be self-fulfilling.
“It would tell me that I’m good enough to play at a championship level and have good character,” he said.
In case you missed it, TCI also caught up with Chris, who was offered by Clemson in January, about the visit.
