Highly recruited cornerback talks Clemson

Tre Douglas, who totes over 30 offers, is one of the most desired defensive backs in the country.

Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Stanford, Tennessee, Texas and USC are some of the schools on his long list.

Clemson threw its hat into the mix for the four-star corner from McDonough, Ga., last December.

“It was a special offer,” Douglas told The Clemson Insider recently. “They offered me early in the process. So that means they believe in me, and I look at stuff like that.”

Later in the recruiting process now, Douglas is close to narrowing the field. He said Clemson is “up there” among his options.

“I like their facilities and the love they have from the coaches,” Douglas said.

Douglas said he talks to Clemson defensive backs coach Mike Reed periodically.

He visited Ohio State last weekend, and said it is the school recruiting him the hardest.

He also went to Vanderbilt in late March and has named Clemson, Florida State, LSU and Stanford as several schools he wants to visit before making a decision.

Douglas is looking for a school he feels at home at.

“The environment,” he said. “Just like a home away from home.”

The 6-foot-2, 180-pounder is ranked as the No. 23 cornerback and No. 136 overall prospect in ESPN’s Junior 300 rankings.
