Peach State prospect calls Clemson’s facility ‘the best’

Rashad Torrence, one of the top sophomore prospects in the Peach State, made his second visit to Clemson last Saturday when the Tigers hosted Boston College.

The class of 2020 safety from Marietta, Ga., was able to get his first look at the Allen N. Reeves Football Complex.

“I really enjoyed the visit,” Torrence told The Clemson Insider. “This was my first time seeing the new football complex. It has everything you could ask for. It’s the best facility I’ve seen.”

What impressed Torrence the most about the $55 million facility?

“The weight room and the game room,” he said.

Torrence (6-0, 185) also liked what he heard from Clemson recruiting coordinator Brandon Streeter, who made a stop at his high school during the spring evaluation period this year.

“I talked with coach Streeter. He said he noticed me when he came to Marietta in the spring,” Torrence said. “He really likes my game and wants me to continue to keep working hard.”

Alabama extended a big offer to Torrence earlier this month, joining Duke, Florida and Syracuse on his list. Virginia Tech, Auburn, Georgia Tech and Tennessee are showing interest along with Clemson.

“I have camped at and visited all of the schools that have offered me, except Syracuse,” Torrence said. “They are all great schools. Clemson has always been one of my favorites, too.”

Torrence pointed to Clemson’s coaching staff as one of the reasons he is high on the Tigers.

“I feel like the coaches really care about and invest in their athletes,” he said. “They always make me feel comfortable when I’m there.”

Torrence previously visited Clemson for the Troy game in 2016.

In 10 games as a freshman last season, he totaled 43 tackles, including two tackles for loss, with a pair of pass deflections and one forced fumble.
