Tigers on top for Clemson legacy recruit

Calhoun (Ga.) 2019 athlete Brannon Spector earned an offer from Clemson after competing at the Dabo Swinney Camp in early June, and he has kept in touch with Clemson recruiting coordinator Brandon Streeter since.

“He tells me to call him about every two weeks,” Spector told The Clemson Insider. “Just checking on things and seeing how I’m doing and how he’s doing, and everything’s good.”

Spector expects to visit Clemson again for games this fall and feels good about the Tigers’ chances heading into the season.

“I think they have a great chance this season as long as they get their offense squared away with the quarterback issue,” he said. “It’s not an issue, but I know there is not a for-sure starter yet. But I’m pretty sure the defense will be lockdown.”

Spector’s brother, Clemson freshman linebacker Baylon Spector, enrolled early at the school in January and went through spring practice.

“He’s enjoyed it a lot,” Brannon said. “He’s done pretty good, he says. I know his diet has changed a lot.”

Brannon (6-1, 188) also has offers from Mercer and Middle Tennessee State, while he is getting mail from other schools.

Clemson is the distant frontrunner in his recruitment.

“For sure on top,” he said.

Brannon plans to commit to his school of choice after his upcoming junior season and has discussed his college decision with his father, former Clemson receiver Robbie Spector.

“He just tells me to make the best choice possible,” Brannon said. “He knows (Clemson) is where he went and he knows that’s probably where I want to go, but he says it’s your choice. He’s not pushing me anywhere.”

Brannon pointed to head coach Dabo Swinney when asked what he likes the most about Clemson.

“I love coach Swinney,” he said. “He’s a kind man, and anything that he says is the real deal. He’s always doing the right things.”

Brannon participated in the full first session of the Swinney Camp from June 6-8. He worked out mostly at receiver, the position he plays for his high school team, but worked out with the safeties for one of the camp sessions.
