Clemson hoping to get mom of Georgia 5-star on campus

By

Back in June 2015, Clemson was the seventh school to offer Atlanta (Ga.) Pace Academy five-star offensive lineman Jamaree Salyer, who now carries over 20 offers.

Salyer, one of the top prospects in the 2018 class, last visited Clemson in March with teammate and 2017 offensive lineman Andrew Thomas, who named Clemson one of three finalists in his recruitment before committing to Georgia in June. Prior to that, Salyer attended Clemson’s annual Junior Day event in January.

The Clemson Insider recently spoke with Salyer, who plans to get back on campus several times in the foreseeable future.

“Definitely a few times this offseason and for a game or two (next season),” Salyer told TCI.

Salyer said Clemson’s staff wants to get his mom on campus, as well.

“They want me to bring my mom up for a visit,” Salyer said.

What does Salyer hope to see when he returns?

“More about the academics,” he said, “and seeing how my mom likes it.”

Salyer said his mom wants to get a better sense of the school for herself.

“She doesn’t really know what to think outside of what she sees on ESPN and that they’re a dominant program overall,” he said.

This season, Salyer made a pair of trips to Georgia for its games against Ole Miss and Auburn, respectively, as well as a visit to Ohio State for its rivalry matchup with Michigan.

“They were all very fun,” Salyer said.

The Bulldogs and Buckeyes, along with the Tigers, are regarded as several of the top contenders for Salyer’s services.

In addition to Clemson, Georgia and Ohio State, Salyer lists offers from Alabama, Auburn, Florida, Florida State, Michigan, Notre Dame, Tennessee and a number of others.

The 6-foot-3, 315-pounder is rated by 247Sports as the No. 2 prospect in Georgia, the nation’s No. 1 offensive guard and the nation’s No. 13 overall prospect in the class of 2018.
