Travis Blanks may be one of the best overall players the Tigers are going after in the 2012 class. The North Florida Christian defensive back has over 25 scholarships and can choose pretty much any school he wants. This summer, however, he chose Clemson as a destination to camp.
“I’ll be up there June 7-9th. I am not going with any teammates or anything I am just going by myself,” said Blanks. “I already have an offer from them and it is past the point of evaluations so I am not worried about standing out or anything like that.”
This visit will present a good opportunity for the Tiger coaching staff to impress the highly rated safety.
“The most important thing about a school is how comfortable I feel when I am on campus, and the people there mainly,” said the 6’1” 200 lbs. playmaker could play corner or safety for the Tigers.
Blanks’ says he has no favorites to this point and that his main concern is taking some visits. Why have so many players from the state of Florida been drawn to Clemson?
“I don’t know, I guess it is the coaches. They are doing some good things that’s all I know,” said Blanks.
The talented defensive back says his goal in the off-season is to continue to get stronger and help his team win a state championship.
