A couple of weeks ago during the spring evaluation period, Knoxville (Tenn.) Knoxville Catholic freshman offensive tackle Bryn Tucker drew a visit from Clemson offensive line coach Robbie Caldwell.
“It was really great to see him,” Tucker said. “He wants me to get back up to Clemson and me to get up to one of their camps and make sure to keep my grades up.”
Tucker, one of the top offensive line prospects in the class of 2020, made his first visit to Clemson for the Orange & White spring game in April.
Tucker was struck by Clemson’s fan base and atmosphere during the exhibition, so he wants to experience the environment in Death Valley again this fall.
“I plan on going to a game this year,” he said. “I just want to have a great time and feel the hype of the game and see the fans go crazy.”
Tucker (6-5, 295) received his first offers from LSU and Tennessee last July before his freshman season. Alabama, Louisville, Mississippi State, Ohio State and Ole Miss have all offered since.
With a list of suitors that will only get longer, Tucker isn’t in a rush to name favorites or make a decision.
“I’m just enjoying the process of my recruitment,” he said.
Clemson is showing a lot of early interest, and Tucker is hoping an offer from the Tigers comes his way in the future.
“I like the domination of the team and how the team is really coached,” he said. “It would mean a lot to me. It would be a big blessing for me.”
Up next for Tucker is a visit to Tennessee in June.
He is a former teammate of 2017 Clemson signee Amari Rodgers, who also hails from Knoxville.
