4-star tackle has Tigers at the top

While Clemson’s line can be shaky at times this season, it has quietly been one of the strongest units in the country over the past couple of years.

The offensive line is one of the big reasons as to why the Tigers’ rushing attack has improved so much this season. Thanks in large part to recruiting, Clemson continues to refuel and replenish its offensive line and has several high-profile recruits on the board for 2019.

Belleview (Fla.) tackle Michael Tarquin is one of those big guys up front that could be a Clemson Tiger come 2019.

Tarquin recently visited Ohio State and said that it was “great.”

“I just love Ohio State, I like the game-day environment as well as the coaches,” he said.

Tarquin said his favorite visits this season have been to Ohio State, Miami, South Carolina and Clemson. The coaches and game days really stood out according to Tarquin.

All four of those schools, in addition to Oklahoma, have been in frequent contact with Tarquin. He feels comfortable and likes all of the coaching staffs.

Tarquin said his must-haves on his school checklist include coaches, players and how good the team is.

What does that mean for Clemson in terms of standing with Tarquin?

“I like Clemson a lot, they’re having a great season,” he said.

He also said the Tigers on field success has definitely helped their stock in his recruitment. The 6-foot-5, 290-pound tackle is not sure when he will get back to Clemson, but said how good they have been doing sets them apart from the rest of the pack.

Tarquin still has plenty of time left in his recruitment, but the next step for him is deciding when he wants to commit.

“I’m deciding whether I want to commit before my official visits or not,” he said.
