In order to continue being crowned Wide Receiver University, Clemson must start at the bottom. The bottom meaning recruits.
Recruits form the base of the pyramid that is Clemson’s wide receiver corps.
The Tigers have seen heavy contribution from this group recently, especially last year when Tee Higgins and Amari Rodgers showed how quickly they developed into reliable targets who can make big plays.
With the 2018 recruiting cycle coming to a close, let’s take a look at a receiver who holds an offer to be a part of WRU in 2019.
Marietta (Ga.) product Ramel Keyton has elite size and speed (6-2, 180) and is garnering plenty of attention from plenty of top tier schools.
Right now, Auburn, Tennessee, Ohio State, South Carolina and Florida are showing the most interest in Keyton, and he said he has been in frequent contact with all of those schools.
“I’m very comfortable with them and they’re showing me that they want me the most,” he said.
Auburn and Notre Dame also visited him at his high school last week.
Keyton said most of the contact he has made with schools is helping him “try to narrow down my recruitment process,” but he still has some time left before he narrows down things and he will narrow down his list some time in the spring.
While Clemson is not currently one of his top schools, Keyton said he will probably go to Death Valley for a visit sometime this spring or summer but would like to hear more from the Tigers.
“I don’t really know right now, they’ve been slacking, he said. “They need to show me that they really want me more.”
In addition to a possible Clemson visit, he said he will be going to Auburn at the beginning of February.
Clemson does not appear to be high in contention at this point in Keyton’s recruitment, but as the 2019 recruiting process starts to unfold this spring, there should be much more mutual interest. He is definitely a player to watch for the Tigers.
