Powell recaps Elite Junior Day


By Hale McGranahan.

Clemson had a trio of the country’s most highly-recruited wide receivers on campus for Saturday’s Elite Junior Day.

One of the three was Cornell Powell, who’s the No. 45 ranked wide receiver in the country, according to Rivals.

“It was great,” he told TheClemsonInsider on Sunday morning.

Powell added, “Everything from the coaching staff to the (graduate assistants), to the basketball game.”

The Rose High School (Greenville, North Carolina) four-star last visited Clemson in October for the Tigers’ win over N.C. State.

Clemson defensive backs coach Mike Reed recruits the Greenville in North Carolina, but co-offensive coordinator/wide receivers coach Jeff Scott has been active in recruiting Powell to Tigertown.

Powell spent plenty of time speaking with Scott and Dabo Swinney on Saturday.

What was their message?

“Show me (where) I would fit in…but other than that, we talked about past guys and the impact they are having on the next level.”

What impresses him the most about Clemson?

“The students and the atmosphere, even at a basketball game. The coaches are cool to be around, to laugh and have a good time with.”

Along with Ohio State, N.C. State, North Carolina and Georgia, Clemson occupies a spot in Powell’s top-five, though there is no particular order to the list.

As a junior, Powell caught 67 passes for 1,248 yards with 19 touchdowns.
