Clemson legacy recruit Brannon Spector will go head-to-head with Clemson quarterback commit Trevor Lawrence when their respective teams face off on Friday.
Spector, a wide receiver and safety at Calhoun (Ga.) High, is excited for the challenge of playing against Lawrence’s Cartersville (Ga.) squad.
“Trevor’s a very good player,” Spector said in an interview with TCI. “As a DB you look forward to a quarterback that’s good at throwing the ball because that means they’re going to throw the ball a lot and that’s opportunities for you to break on the ball and make plays.”
Clemson recruiting coordinator and quarterbacks coach Brandon Streeter will be on hand at Cartersville High to watch the two prospects.
“It’s going to be fun,” Spector said. “He said he’s going to come and see me during school tomorrow and just catch up with me.”
Spector will then make an unofficial visit to Clemson on Saturday for the Tigers’ season opener against Kent State.
Like a lot of people, Spector is looking forward to seeing how quarterback Kelly Bryant fares in his first career start.
“I’m very curious,” he said. “I know Clemson is going to be really good. I’m curious to see the quarterback, Kelly, how he does. I’m sure he’ll do well. It’s going to be fun.”
Spector’s father is former Clemson receiver Robbie Spector, who played for the school from 1988-90. His brother is Clemson freshman linebacker Baylon Spector, while his sister is a cheerleader for the Tigers.
So, it’s no surprise who Brannon is pulling for again this year.
“I hope they win the national championship again,” he said of Clemson. “I’m rooting for them.”
Brannon (6-1, 188) earned a coveted offer from Clemson in June following his performance at the Dabo Swinney Camp.
While Clemson is the clear-cut favorite in his recruitment, Spector is looking to see several other schools before he renders a commitment after his junior season.
“I don’t really have any visits planned, but I have had some ideas of where I want to go,” he said. “I’m thinking about Vanderbilt, Georgia, Florida State and probably Alabama.”
Brannon also plans to visit Clemson for its clash against Auburn on Sept. 9.
