One of the top wide receiver prospects at the Dabo Swinney Camp last week was Nolan Groulx.
The 2019 four-star from Hough High in Cornelius, N.C., competed at the camp on Tuesday.
“I liked the camp a lot because I was a one-day camper, and we got straight to work and it was well organized,” Groulx told The Clemson Insider. “There was also some good competition at the camp for me to stand out.”
After breaking out as a sophomore in 2016, when he caught over 100 passes for more than 1,800 yards and 24 touchdowns, Groulx was invited to attend Clemson’s junior day in March.
Receivers coach Jeff Scott expressed his interest to Groulx then and told him he wanted to further evaluate him at the Swinney Camp.
Scott liked what he saw, according to Groulx.
“He said I did great at camp and was able to get a good evaluation,” Groulx said. “He said they are very interested. He likes my technique and fundamentals and how quick I get in and out of my breaks. He is a coach that doesn’t care about speed as much as technique.”
Following his performance last season, Groulx has picked up offers from Central Michigan, N.C. State, South Carolina, Wake Forest, West Virginia and Wisconsin.
Clemson, Florida State, Georgia, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Penn State and Virginia Tech are among the other schools showing interest.
What would a future offer from Clemson mean to Groulx?
“Clemson would definitely be at the top of my list,” he said. “What stands out to me the most is the family atmosphere and the winning attitude.”
Groulx has also camped at Penn State and Virginia Tech thus far this summer. He is slated to camp at Florida State and Georgia in July.
