2020 QB: ‘It would mean the world’ to play at Clemson

A top performer among the quarterbacks at the Dabo Swinney Camp this week was Myrtle Beach (S.C.) rising sophomore Luke Doty.

Doty, who has participated in the Swinney Camp a handful of times over the years, competed at all three days of the first session from Tuesday to Thursday.

“It was awesome,” Doty told The Clemson Insider. “Coach (Brandon) Streeter was a great instructor. We were with him the entire time, so I definitely got some great feedback from him. It felt great to get out there and throw the ball around.”

Doty received his first offers from Coastal Carolina last summer before he had played a down of varsity football. Charlotte has since offered, while Louisville, North Carolina, N.C. State and South Carolina are showing interest.

The 6-foot-1, 180-pound dual-threat consistently showed off his live arm and quick release at Clemson.

“I thought I competed pretty well and held my own with the older guys,” Doty said. “There were a great group of quarterbacks, and it was a great competition. But coach Streeter was with us the whole time, so he was always giving me pointers and little things to improve on.”

Doty camped at South Carolina before Clemson and performed at UNC Charlotte on Saturday and North Carolina on Sunday.

Clemson is a dream offer for Doty, who was raised in a family full of Tiger fans.

“Clemson is a beautiful place,” he said. “Growing up a Clemson fan, we’re always watching the games, supporting them, and it would mean the world to go to school there and to play for Clemson.”
