Linebacker looking to get more of Clemson experience

Clemson’s linebacker core has been one of the best units in the country over the past several years under defensive coordinator Brent Venables and that does not look to change anytime soon.

Clemson should take at least a couple of linebackers in the 2019 Class, and one of the recruits being looked at is Greer (S.C.) product Quack Cohen.

The 6-foot-1, 230-pound Cohen is one of the few 4-star prospects without an offer yet, but they should begin to start pouring in come this spring.

The high school junior has not taken a visit since his trip to Clemson for the Georgia Tech game. Out of his four visits this year (Clemson, Duke, South Carolina and App. State), he said Clemson and Duke stood out to him the most.

“I like those two because not only you have time for football, but you also have time to get your school work done and people to help you,” Cohen said.

As of right now, Cohen said Clemson and Georgia Tech are showing the most interest in him.

He she does not currently have any favorites but he is looking to hear more from several schools, including North Carolina.

Although the recruiting process is still very young for Cohen, he does have a list of items he is looking for in a school.

“Really cool atmosphere and relationships with as many coaches as I can have one with and also the players,” he said.

While Clemson has not offered him, the Tigers definitely have the potential to be one of his favorites come decision time.

In addition to an offer, Cohen said that he “needs to experience a full day at Clemson university and see how everything is actually like in school and football.”

Cohen does not have a timetable for making a decision, but he is a name to look at going into the bulk of the 2019 recruiting process this coming spring.
