Trio of prospects to visit Clemson today


Clemson will welcome a trio of prospects to campus for a visit Saturday in 2018 Atlanta (Ga.) Westlake defensive back Myles Sims, 2018 Sachse (Texas) dual-threat quarterback Jalen Mayden and 2018 Sachse wide receiver Drue Jackson.

Clemson offered Sims (6-3, 160) on May 10, and this will be his first trip to the school. He and Mayden have a close relationship.

Sims wasn’t quite sure about the schedule on tap today, but there are several things he’ll be looking out for throughout the visit.

“I’m hoping to get what I’m looking for out of it,” Sims said, “such as my campus life, coaches and academic requirements.”

Sims has remained in touch with Clemson defensive coordinator Brent Venables and defensive backs coach Mike Reed since the Tigers offered.

Sims can play both cornerback and safety. He is a long and physical player who enjoys playing press coverage.

He has offers from Auburn, Duke, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisville, Maryland, Michigan, Michigan State, Oklahoma and South Carolina.

As for Mayden, he holds offers from Houston, Illinois, Louisville, Mississippi State, Ohio State, Oregon State, Syracuse and Utah among others. The 6-foot-2, 210-pound prospect threw for 2,496 yards, ran for 513 more and accounted for 36 touchdowns as a sophomore.

Jackson (6-1, 185) caught 15 passes for 139 yards and a touchdown in 2015. He is a fast-rising prospect who since late April has been offered by Texas Tech, Iowa, Utah, Louisville, Illinois and Jackson State, respectively.

It will be a one-day stay for the three recruits.
