2013 receiver Jalen McDaniel attended the second session of the Dabo Swinney High School camp and left town very impressed with the Tigers.
“Camp was great. It started on day one getting a feel for the camp and learning what coach Scott wanted us to be doing. We had some good competition out there,” said McDaniel.
The Jack Britt standout had already built a relationship with coach Scott.
“I have been around coach Scott a lot. I was up for the North Texas and Miami games last year. At camp we had a lot of time to go over things,” said McDaniel.
What did the top receiver think of coach Swinney?
“Dabo is a real funny guy. He is an inspirational person. He shows the Christian that he is and I really appreciate that,” said McDaniel.
When asked about his current leaders, McDaniel responded, ““Clemson is my home. That is how I would put it.”
Would a commitment come quickly if the Tigers were to offer?
“I haven’t decided yet. I am waiting for that time to come. When the time is right I will do it,” replied McDaniel.
Jalen had the opportunity to spend time with a number of future Tigers at the camp and built some strong relationships.
“Me, Germone (Hopper) and Chad (Kelly) hung out. We all had good conversations about Clemson,” said McDaniel.
Future Tiger and former teammate Eric MacLain is already working to get Jalen to join him at Clemson.
“He presses me every day. He gives me a call of text almost every day. He makes sure I go hard at practice,” said McDaniel.
Expect the offer list to grow quickly over the next few months for Jalen.
“I don’t have any offers yet. I am hearing a lot from Clemson, NC State, Nebraska, Florida, Auburn, Western Carolina, East Carolina and UNC,” said McDaniel.
The 2013 standout will camp at North Carolina State this weekend.
