Intriguing North Carolina TE checks out Clemson

Among a number of standout visitors for Clemson’s game against Syracuse on Saturday was Andrew Tuazma.

The Knightdale, N.C. product and three-star tight end in the 2018 class recently spoke with The Clemson Insider about his first trip to Tiger Town.

“I loved everything there,” Tuazama said. “Me and my mom really enjoyed it.”

The 6-foot-6, 225-pounder said a couple of parts about his experience stood out.

“The atmosphere,” Tuazama said, “and one of the coaches really made me feel welcomed when he sat down and talked to me and my mom.”

East Carolina, Miami and Ole Miss are Tuazama’s first offers. He is also attracting interest from Clemson, Florida, Florida State, N.C. State, Wake Forest and Virginia Tech.

Tuazama is a fan of the Tigers after visiting.

“I like the campus,” he said. “It was beautiful, and I like the tradition there.”

Tuazama doubles as a defensive end, but Clemson is looking at him as a tight end.

What does Tuazama feel he will bring to the table at the next level?

“I will bring my athleticism and my talent,” Tuazama said, “and always will look to work hard.”

Clemson was the latest stop for Tuazma after he visited East Carolina, North Carolina, N.C. State and Virginia Tech earlier this season. He also hopes to get to Duke, Florida State, Miami and Wake Forest.

Tuazama is also a standout basketball player for Knightdale.
