Over the past few years with the Tigers have had a lot of success recruiting even while lacking the production on the field. With the way the team is playing now, recruiting is only going to get better. Jamaul Vickers the standout receiver from Godby High School (FL) has been impressed with what Clemson has done and that is why he listed them as his top school.
“Clemson’s my number one school,” said Vicker. “I love how they distribute the ball to a lot of receivers and I love how it has a great academic program as well. I know they have a good sports management program and I have been interested in doing that because my dad is the assistant athletic director at UNLV.”
The 6’0” 175 lbs. wide out holds offers from Vanderbilt and Clemson so far, he listed Vanderbilt and Oklahoma as top schools after Clemson.
Any plans to visit?
“I haven’t been up to Clemson yet; I was supposed to go to camp there this summer but couldn’t make it. I want to go up for a game I am not sure when I am waiting for coach Swinney to call me back,” said Vickers.
How is Florida native doing so far this season?
“Everything is going great, I love my coaches and my teammates, we are 4-0 so far,” said Vickers. “I am doing good, but I broke four or five bones in my finger. I missed one game and our bye week but I will be ready for our next game. There is still a little pain but football is a game of pain so I’m going to man up and take it. So far I think I have about 10-12 catches for over 100 yards, I am not sure though.”
Vickers plays both cornerback and receiver for his team. Schools are looking at him at both positions at the next level.
Vickers says he is in contact with Coach Scott, he checks up with him and he talks to his coach a lot, but he is trying to stay focused on his season.
“I am still going over everything with my coach, but he is staying on me and keeping me disciplined,” said Vickers. “This year and next year are both big years for me.”
