4-star ATH feels Clemson's interest on visit

A little more than a week after receiving an offer from Clemson on Oct. 25, Blythewood (S.C.) four-star athlete Jordyn Adams visited Clemson for the Tigers’ game against Syracuse on Saturday.

It was his second visit to Clemson for a football game, but first as a football recruit.

Clemson is also looking at Adams, a standout two-sport athlete, for baseball.

“Me and my mom and my friends I had with me really enjoyed it,” Adams told The Clemson Insider. “They really showed us good hospitality and how they were really happy for me to be in town and be able to make a game. Everything overall stood out to me, and I really enjoyed it.”

Clemson co-offensive coordinator and receivers coach Jeff Scott met Adams and those accompanying him when they arrived on campus and carried them over to the stadium.

What did Adams hear from Scott?

“How he really wants me, and that I have that ‘it’ factor,” Adams said. “All the coaches expressed how I’m special and they really want me to be there.”

Adams also had the opportunity to speak with Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney during the visit.

“The highlight was probably talking to coach Swinney and him encouraging me to play baseball and stuff like that,” Adams said.

In addition to baseball offers from North Carolina and South Carolina, Adams has obtained football offers from Clemson, East Carolina, Kentucky, Maryland, Missouri, North Carolina, Ole Miss, SMU, South Carolina, Southern Miss and Virginia Tech.

Clemson offered Adams, who plays quarterback for Blythewood, as a receiver.

Adams liked what he saw from Clemson’s offense during the 54-0 victory.

“I saw that they have a bunch more weapons than what people think,” Adams said, “and their offense really gives an opportunity to everyone and not just one person.”

After visiting Clemson’s game against Florida State last November as a baseball prospect, Adams said it was nice to experience Clemson from a football viewpoint.

“It’s different because with football, I was with football the whole time, and I got to see things from a football perspective,” Adams said.

Adams intends to play both football and baseball in college, at least initially, and has an idea of when he will render a commitment decision in the future.

“Right now I’m planning on making my decision maybe late spring, early senior year, somewhere around there,” Adams said.

Adams also attended the Dabo Swinney Camp in June and showed well before impressing again at one of his games in September with Scott watching.

The 6-foot-2, 175-pounder is rated as the No. 5 prospect in South Carolina, the nation’s No. 4 athlete and the nation’s No. 116 overall prospect in the class of 2018.

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