Class of 2019 offensive lineman Jackson Lampley is set for his first game-day visit to Death Valley. The four-star from Montgomery Bell Academy in Nashville, Tenn., will be among the prospects Clemson plays host to on Saturday for its top-15 matchup against Auburn.
Experiencing the game-day environment at Clemson is something Lampley has looked forward to for a while.
“I’m really excited,” he told The Clemson Insider. “I’ve never been to a game in Death Valley, and I’ve always wanted to attend one.”
Lampley (6-4, 290) most recently visited Clemson to compete at the Dabo Swinney Camp in June and also made an unofficial visit to the school in April.
Asked to describe his interest level in Clemson, Lampley said he is “extremely interested.”
“I really like their coaching staff, and they have shown that they can win national championships,” he said. “Also, Clemson is a great school academically, and that really stands out to me.”
The Tigers have gotten Lampley’s attention, and vice versa. Lampley said Clemson is one of the schools that has shown the most interest since Sept. 1 — the first day college coaches could actively begin reaching out to junior prospects.
“I have been hearing a lot from Clemson since September 1st,” he said. “In fact, Clemson has been one of the schools that has contacted me the most.”
What has the Tigers’ message to Lampley been?
“They have really been wanting to get to know me better and build a relationship, which is really important to me in the recruiting process,” Lampley said. “They have been asking me about how my life is on and off the field. I’ve really like that a lot because it has also allowed me to get to know the coaching staff better as well.”
Lampley, the son of former Tennessee offensive lineman Jackson Lampley, lists scholarship offers from Auburn, Georgia, Louisville, LSU, Mississippi State, Missouri, North Carolina, Ole Miss and Tennessee among others.
Along with Clemson, Lampley said he has heard the most from Auburn, Ole Miss, South Carolina and Tennessee. He hopes to render his commitment decision by next summer.
Lampley is ranked as a top-100 prospect in the 2019 class by 247Sports and a top-200 overall prospect by ESPN.
