Pierce Quick, one of the top offensive linemen in the 2019 class, visited Clemson for the first time last month. Next week, he will be paid a visit by Clemson.
With the spring evaluation period in progress, members of Clemson’s staff will make a stop at Hewitt-Trussville High in Trussville, Ala., to watch one of his practices.
“Some of their coaches will be at either my first practice on Monday or my second on Tuesday,” Quick told TCI. “It’ll be great to see them.”
Quick’s stock has soared over the past few months as he’s picked up offers from Auburn, Tennessee, Alabama, Oregon, Georgia and LSU among others since February.
Alabama is on top in his recruitment after offering on Feb. 25.
“Right now Alabama is at number one just because of all the love I get from them,” Quick said.
It will be tough for any school to overtake the Tide for Quick. But if the Tigers offer, they could present a threat.
Dabo Swinney can relate to Quick, having grown up in Alabama. Plus, Quick has a good relationship with Todd Bates, who gave him his first offer last June when he was the defensive line coach at Jacksonville State.
“Clemson would definitely be a huge offer,” Quick said, “not only because of the ties but also just because of their success they’ve previously had.”
Quick plans to visit Alabama again for its spring game on Saturday. He attended Clemson’s junior day on March 4.
Besides Alabama and Clemson, he has been to Auburn, Georgia and LSU this spring.
