A massive in-state offensive lineman firmly on Clemson’s radar returned to Tiger Town on Saturday.
Moncks Corner (S.C.) Berkeley tackle Kamren McCray attended Clemson’s win against The Citadel in Death Valley.
“I really enjoyed myself,” McCray told TCI. “It was a great visit.
“The highlight of my visit would just be feeling at home with the coaches and fans.”
McCray is turning into one of the Palmetto State’s top offensive line prospects in the class of 2019. He received his first offer from South Carolina over the summer, while he is garnering interest from Virginia Tech, North Carolina, Kentucky, Auburn and East Carolina in addition to Clemson.
The whopping 6-foot-6, 325-pounder caught up with Clemson offensive line coach Robbie Caldwell and area recruiter Tony Elliott during the visit.
“They were asking about how my season is going,” McCray said, “and were telling me that they are recruiting me hard.”
McCray also visited Clemson for a game last fall before competing at the Dabo Swinney Camp in June.
“Clemson is a great place,” he said. “It’s a place that gives love like no other. Also the coaches are those group of coaches that are going to tell it like is and don’t tolerate anything but the best.”
McCray lives about two hours from Columbia and about four hours from Clemson, but said he didn’t have an allegiance to either of the in-state schools as a kid.
“I wouldn’t say I’m a fan,” he said, “but I really enjoyed watching both teams play growing up.”
With the potential to earn more offers moving forward, McCray is taking his time with the recruiting process. He doesn’t plan to make a decision until the middle or latter part of his senior season next year.
Should Clemson come in with an offer before then, McCray said it would mean a lot.
“It would be a huge honor to receive an offer from a school like Clemson,” he said.
McCray has also visited South Carolina and East Carolina this season.
