Spector: Clemson will be fine

Calhoun (Ga.) High School standout Baylon Spector was one of four Clemson commitments who visited Clemson on Saturday for the game against Troy.

The 6-foot-2, 220-pounder told The Clemson Insider that it was great to get back on campus.

“I had a great time,” Spector said. “I always enjoy getting down there, visiting with other commits, the players and the coaches.”

What did Spector think about Clemson’s closer-than-expected 30-24 win?

“They definitely left some points and some yards out on the field, but those are mistakes they can easily fix,” Spector said. “I’m not really worried about it. I think they’ll be perfectly fine and bounce back good. A win is a win.”

Grayson (Ga.) quarterback Chase Brice, Knoxville (Tenn.) Catholic wide receiver Amari Rodgers and Virginia Beach (Va.) Cox defensive end Jordan Williams were the other commits in attendance.

Spector enjoyed catching up with them, as well as his future position coach at Clemson, linebackers coach and defensive coordinator Brent Venables.

Spector and Venables had the chance to chat both before and after the game.

“Just touching base and talking about the game, stuff like that,” Spector said. “I’m very excited to be coached by him and learn a lot of new things about football.”

Spector, who plays quarterback for Calhoun, opposed Cartersville five-star quarterback Trevor Lawrence on Sept. 2.

Spector came away from the contest impressed.

“I want to get Trevor Lawrence (to Clemson) after playing him,” Spector said. “That’s for sure.”

Clemson’s performance against Troy has many concerned about the Tigers moving forward.

But after seeing them in person for the first time this season, Spector isn’t worried.

“I think we’ll be just fine,” Spector said. “I think it will be a great season. I think we’ll have one just as good or better than last year, but I’m very excited to see the future of that team and what they’re going to do.”
