Jackson (Ga.) cornerback Tee Denson is just a sophomore but already hitting the recruiting scene.
Clemson is one of the schools showing early interest in the class of 2020 prospect, and he visited Clemson last Saturday for the Tigers’ game against Wake Forest.
It was his first time on campus.
“I really enjoyed my visit to Clemson,” Denson said. “I had a great time. It’s a great atmosphere there.
“The coaches, the fans, the players, everyone showed me love. It felt like I was at home.”
Denson (6-1, 165) said he spoke with several members of Clemson’s coaching staff, but mostly spent time with two coaches in particular including cornerbacks coach Mike Reed.
“I had a chance to talk to a lot of coaches, but the main two were coach Reed and coach Briggs,” Denson said. “They both were explaining how great Clemson is. Also they were talking about the new football facility, but mainly how everybody in the town comes out to the games and supports the team.”
Alabama and Georgia Tech are also showing interest, according to Denson, who pointed to his competitiveness as one of his best qualities as a player.
“They have to show me that they can ball,” Denson said of the opposition. “I never back down from competition.”
Denson is slated to visit Clemson again for the Georgia Tech game on Oct. 28. He is working to set up a visit to Auburn, as well.
