TCI got a chance to speak with 6-7, 255 pound offensive lineman Tyler Stasky out of Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina and spoke with him about how the recruiting process is going for him so far and his thoughts on Clemson’s Junior Day.
First of all Tyler, I know it’s still early in the recruiting process but which schools have shown interest in you so far?
Clemson, UNC, NC State, Wake Forest, and Duke have all shown interest in me so far.
Which of those schools contact you regularly?
Clemson, NC State and Wake Forest send me about a letter a day probably. I hear from the other schools pretty regularly too.
Do you have a leader so far?
I’d have to say Clemson and NC State are tied right now but it’s still very early in the process so things could change.
Now you were present at Clemson’s Junior Day, can you tell me about your experience on Clemson’s campus? What were the highlights of your visit?
The trip to Clemson was amazing. But the highlights of my visit had to be meeting the coaches and having some one on one time with them and seeing the family atmosphere that Clemson University is known for. The facilities were great too; it was good to see them. Visiting Clemson and hearing the coaches tell their stories really makes you want to be a better man.
Did you get a chance to meet any of the current Clemson players or other recruits?
I didn’t get a chance to hang out with any of the current players however there were 10 or 11 of us recruits and we hung out a lot.
Did you get a chance to meet any of Clemson’s new coaches?
I had a chance to sit down with Offensive Coordinator Chad Morris and he told me all about his offensive scheme and his plan for Clemson’s offense and I really like his plan of having 80 or so snaps per game and running a fast paced offense.
With signing day last week, how excited are you for next year and signing your own letter of intent?
Watching signing day and then seeing what these guys can do on the field really got me fired up. It makes me want to continue to work hard in the off season so that I can have a great senior season and get picked up by a great school.
Are you planning on taking any other official visits to Clemson either next football season or during spring practice?
I plan on going back up to Clemson for Spring Practice and then during the summer too then definitely for some football games in the fall.
