TheClemsonInsider has the latest batch of recruiting news and notes ready to roll your way on Easter Sunday.
Up first this afternoon is a little more on the latest 2019 prospect to land an offer from Clemson: Jashawn Sheffield, the wide receiver from Saint Simon’s Island, Ga.
Sheffield made the trek up to Clemson on Friday with a group from south Georgia, before heading over to Columbia to visit with the South Carolina coaches. The Tigers and Gamecocks both offered Sheffield while the group was on campus.
Jeff Scott extended the offer to Sheffield (6-2, 175). As a freshman, he rushed for 753 yards and had 316 yards receiving: LINK
“Coach Scott told me a couple months back that I had an offer, but he wanted to make it official when I came on campus,” Sheffield said. “We got there and coach Scott met us as soon as we got at the door. He showed us around (and) I went to the team meeting and position meeting with him.
“We went to practice and after practice he officially told me I had an offer.”
Among the prospects Sheffield was joined by was 2019 offensive lineman Warren McClendon (6-5, 280).
Alabama was the first offer for McClendon, who played right tackle as a freshman at Brunswick High School. South Carolina pulled the trigger on an offer Saturday.
Though McClendon hasn’t picked up an offer from the Tigers, he certainly looks like and plays like a guy who’s good enough to scoop one up: LINK
Along with the group from south Georgia, Clemson played host to 2017 outside linebacker James Houston IV, who was offered by Brent Venables a few weeks ago.
Houston, a three-star outside linebacker from Fort Lauderdale, also visited on Friday.
Clemson will have three-star linebacker Keisean Wilson (6-1, 220) in for a visit next weekend. Wilson, who tweeted the news on Saturday, has offers from Army, Charlotte, Marshall, Navy, Syracuse and Temple.
