Class of 2019 four-star offensive tackle Pierce Quick has been committed to Alabama since April, but that didn’t take away from his excitement upon receiving an offer from Clemson last Friday.
“It means a whole lot,” Quick said of the offer. “Clemson is a big-time program, and for them to give me the opportunity to play for them is truly a blessing.”
The standout from Hewitt-Trussville High in Trussville, Ala., is eyeing another visit to Clemson after adding the offer.
He visited for the first time back in March when he attended the Tigers’ junior day.
“I think I’m going to go to a game this season,” Quick said.
What is Quick looking to see on the visit?
“The game atmosphere and facilities,” he said.
Quick’s area recruiter for Clemson is Todd Bates, whom he is very familiar with. The Tigers’ defensive line coach gave Quick his first offer in June 2016 when he was the defensive line coach at Jacksonville State.
The two have a good relationship and have stayed in touch.
“He just wants to get me on campus,” Quick said, “and he thinks I’m a great fit for Clemson.”
Quick (6-5, 277) has continued to be recruited by other schools since he committed to Alabama while on campus for its spring game, but says he remains solid on his pledge. He has visited Alabama several times since he committed on April 22, including for each of the Crimson Tide’s home games so far in 2017.
“I will definitely visit (Clemson) but I’m still committed to Alabama,” Quick said.
Quick is a consensus top-10 offensive tackle and top-100 overall prospect in the 2019 class according to the major recruiting services.
Along with Alabama and Clemson, he has offers from Auburn, Georgia, LSU, Michigan and Tennessee among others.
