Clemson remains in good spot with 5-star Carman

Clemson continues to make five-star offensive tackle Jackson Carman feel like the priority target he is for the Tigers in the 2018 class.

Offensive line coach Robbie Caldwell traveled to Carman’s school in Fairfield, Ohio, twice during the spring evaluation period to check in on him.

“I’m still as much as a priority as I was before,” Carman told The Clemson Insider.

Carman, the nation’s top-ranked offensive lineman, said he is looking to visit Clemson, Florida State, Southern Cal and Wisconsin this summer.

Clemson would like to get him on campus for the All In Cookout in July. Carman said he doesn’t know yet whether he will be able to attend.

“I’m not sure if I’ll be able to make it or not yet,” he said.

What does he want to get out of his next trip to Clemson?

“I’ll be hoping to get a better feel for the place and to explore a little bit more,” he said, “and also get to know the recruits and players better.”

Carman (6-6, 290) made his first visit to Clemson in March, an experience that led him to publicly name Clemson the leader in his recruitment shortly after.

After most recently visiting Ohio State for its spring game in April, Carman said the Tigers and Buckeyes were tied atop his list, and that remains the case to date.

“They’re still tied for number one on my list,” Carman said.

Carman is expected to take his official visits this fall before coming to a decision. He plans to enroll early in his school of choice.
