Newly offered safety set for Clemson official visit

Tucker (Ga.) three-star safety Trevon Flowers is set to take an official visit to Clemson beginning on Wednesday.

Flowers (6-1, 185) told TCI he will arrive to Clemson at around 4-5 p.m. Wednesday and be on campus until Friday. He will be accompanied by his father and mother.

“I’m just looking to know more about what they are offering,” Flowers said of the Tigers.

Clemson extended an offer to Flowers on Wednesday morning. Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney, safeties coach Mickey Conn and a couple of other assistants stopped by his school this morning. Flowers said he began communicating with Swinney and Conn last Saturday.

Flowers is a two-sport athlete (football and baseball) who was at one time committed to Kentucky as a shortstop. He had not played football since middle school before suiting up as a defensive back for Tucker as a senior last season. Tennessee, Illinois and App State have since extended football offers as well.

Flowers wants to play both football and baseball in college. He is considering Clemson, Tennessee and Kentucky.

TCI has learned that if Clemson’s football program takes him, the baseball program would love to have him as well. Flowers is scheduled to meet with the baseball staff on Thursday.

Flowers shined on the gridiron as a senior, and Clemson’s football coaches have made it clear they like him.

“They say they can’t believe I did this in one year, just imagine what I can do when I get it down more” Flowers said. “I play baseball so I have great soft hands. I’m fast and athletic overall.”

Flowers is currently slated to take his final official visit to Tennessee from Friday to Sunday. He made an official visit to Kentucky earlier this month.

Before receiving the offer from Clemson, Flowers told TCI that it would be big for him.

“It would mean a lot,” he said of a Clemson offer. “I may have a decision. Just still want to be able to take my visits and make sure. You only get to do this once.”

Flowers said he plans to announce his decision on Feb. 7, National Signing Day.
