Clemson offer ‘means a lot’ to standout 4-star athlete

On Tuesday, Clemson rendered an offer to a standout two-sport athlete in Blythewood (S.C.) four-star Jordyn Adams.

The Clemson Insider caught up with Adams, a 2018 prospect, about the offer.

“Coach (Jeff) Scott texted me when I woke up and told me whenever I have free time to give him a call,” Adams told TCI. “I told him I would call him at lunch time, and whenever lunch came around, I gave him a call, and that’s when he told me.”

Clemson offered Adams, who also has scholarship offers to play baseball, as a wide receiver.

It was a special offer for Adams, who knows the Tigers have a high standard in recruiting.

“It means a lot because from talking to (Scott) in the summer at the camp, it really showed me that Clemson doesn’t just offer anyone,” Adams said. “They offer premier players that they know can come in and help the program and that they find out that’s a top recruit in the nation.”

Adams carries other football offers from East Carolina, Kentucky, Maryland, Missouri, North Carolina, Ole Miss, SMU, South Carolina and Southern Miss.

The 6-foot-2, 175-pounder possesses baseball offers from North Carolina and South Carolina, as well.

Adams intends to play both sports in college, at least initially, and Clemson is one of the schools he has a chance to do that at.

“Mainly all my offers are tied into one,” Adams said. “I can play both, so I think I’m going to try to play both starting off.”

What does Adams like about Clemson?

“I love the things they have accomplished,” Adams said, “and the things that they are going to accomplish in the future, too.”

Adams last visited Clemson for the Dabo Swinney Camp in June, when he worked out with the receivers. Scott also evaluated Adams during a game at his high school last month.

Adams plays quarterback for Blythewood.

“He said he loves how I can highpoint the ball, my burst of speed and versatility between the slot and the boundaries at the receiver position,” Adams said of Scott.

Adams and Scott are building a good relationship.

“I love how he’s real straightforward with things and doesn’t sugarcoat anything,” Adams said. “Just tells it exactly how it is.”

Adams will return to Clemson on Nov. 5 for the Tigers’ game against Syracuse. It will be his second game visit, as he also attended the Florida State game last year, but first as a football recruit.

Adams is rated as the No. 5 prospect in South Carolina, the nation’s No. 4 athlete and the nation’s No. 116 prospect overall in the class of 2018.
