Clemson, Tennessee eyeing 4-star OL

With the college football season right around the corner, four-star offensive tackle Bryn Tucker is in the process of planning game-day visits for this fall.

“One of them is Clemson,” Tucker told TCI.

Tucker, a prospect in the class of 2020 from Knoxville (Tenn.) Catholic, made his first visit to Clemson for the Orange & White spring game in April.

There are a few things Tucker is looking to get out of his next experience in Tiger Town.

“I’m very excited for it,” he said. “I’m expecting to see how well the players perform against a talented team and to see if the offensive line dominates up front, and to meet all the coaches and create a good bond together.”

One coach he has begun to build a bond with early in his recruiting process is Clemson offensive line coach Robbie Caldwell.

“He’s a very great coach,” Tucker said. “Teaches technique well.”

Tucker and Caldwell recently got in touch.

“I spoke to coach Caldwell not that long ago,” Tucker said. “(He said) that he needs to get me back to Clemson as soon as possible, and to keep working and leading my high school team.”

Tucker has close to double-digit major scholarship offers heading into his sophomore season, including ones from powerhouse programs such as Alabama, LSU, Ohio State and Tennessee.

Though Clemson hasn’t yet pulled the trigger on an offer, Tucker said it is one of the schools showing the most interest early on.

“Tennessee is very hot on me, and Clemson is too,” he said.

Tucker is taking his recruitment slow and in no rush to name leaders at this point.

One of his favorites, though, is Clemson, and he hopes to see an offer from the Tigers come his way in the future.

“I like how they got a great program going on,” Tucker said. “The coaches they have are really awesome, and to have an offer would be a major blessing.”

Tucker is ranked as the No. 3 offensive tackle and No. 26 overall prospect in his class.

He is a former teammate of Clemson freshman wide receiver Amari Rodgers, who also hails from Knoxville Catholic.
