6-2, 235 pound linebacker Ricky DeBerry will be one of the top prospects in the nation for the 2015 class. Earlier this month the Richmond, VA native visited Clemson.
“It was a real good visit. I got a chance to sit down with coach Venables and look at film and see where the see me playing if I chose Clemson,” said DeBerry.
Ricky family also enjoyed what they saw at Clemson.
“My mom, dad, brother, sister and brother came with me. They loved it. My dad enjoyed it and my mom really liked the academics,” said DeBerry.
Ricky hopes to make another trip to Clemson this fall.
“The campus was beautiful. I am looking forward to getting back down there,” said DeBerry.
A visit to Georgia was also part of the trip.
“It was very good also. The coaches sat down and showed me how they would use me. They said they see me like Jarvis Jones coming off the edge. I didn’t know the wrestler Goldberg played football there,” said DeBerry.
The rising junior already has 37 offers. When asked if he has any current leaders, DeBerry responded, “No sir. After the season I will narrow it down some.”
What will be important when the prize recruit selects a college?
“I will look at academics first. I want to see if the school has my major. Right now I want to major in Computer Science, but that could change. I want a school with a great fanbase. I want a school has a chance to win their conference championship and compete for a national championship,” replied DeBerry.
