Tigers in final 4 for one of nation's top safeties

Cypress (Texas) Springs four-star safety Leon O’Neal announced his final four schools Thursday morning.

Clemson made his short list, as did Georgia, Oklahoma and Texas A&M.

O’Neal (6-1, 190) is ranked among the top 10 safeties and top 100 prospects in the class of 2018. He recently de-committed from Texas A&M on Dec. 1 following the school’s hire of Jimbo Fisher.

O’Neal named Clemson one of his top schools over the summer, as well, before committing to the Aggies in June. He received an offer from the Tigers back in January and visited Clemson for the spring game in April.

Clemson had an in-home visit with O’Neal on Wednesday night.

Last month, O’Neal was officially selected to play in the U.S. Army All-American Bowl.
