‘Tis the season for recruiting visits, especially for primetime games like Clemson vs. Auburn last Saturday.
Death Valley was alive and put on a full show for some of the country’s top recruits in No.. 2 Clemson’s first premier win of the season over the other Tigers from Auburn in what was a defensive battle.
With Clemson in the hunt for more defensive talent to help fuel its electric front line, a line that put on an 11-sack performance against Auburn, it definitely showed recruits just how good the Tigers are up front (even after losing coaches Dan Brooks and Marion Hobby after last season).
Defensive tackle Zovon Lindsay, class of 2019, was present for Clemson’s victory and visited the new Allen Reeves Football Complex for the first time.
“It’s an amazing facility, it really is the best in the nation,” he said.
The Trinity Christian (N.C.) product said his favorite part of the facility was “definitely the weight room.”
Lindsay also got to further establish relationships with some of the coaching staff during his time at the facility on Saturday. While that does not necessarily give insight into whether or not Clemson will give Lindsay an offer, his status is definitely one to monitor once the 2018 recruiting cycle ends because of his size (6-foot-5, 250) and potential.
Lindsay has been down to Death Valley several times already, but said it still amazes him every time. He also mentioned he would love to be a part of Clemson’s hard-nosed D-line.
“It was great, the fans are amazing and Death Valley is a great place to play,” he said. “It would mean a lot because the D-line culture there is amazing and they put a lot of players in the NFL.”
Lindsay gives a brief picture of what he could offer to one of the best D-lines in the country, and he could very well fit in if he walks the walk.
“A great pass rush, and I can also bring the swagger that those guys play with,” he said.
