Top safety target talks ‘amazing’ Clemson official visit

Clemson is aiming to add a safety to its 2018 class on Wednesday, National Signing Day.

The safety prospect the Tigers have made a late push for ahead of signing day is Tucker (Ga.)’s Trevon Flowers.

The Tigers began communicating with Flowers the weekend before last. Last Wednesday, Flowers received an offer from Clemson when head coach Dabo Swinney, safeties coach Mickey Conn and a couple of other assistants stopped by his school.

Clemson then brought Flowers on campus for an official visit, which began Wednesday afternoon and concluded Friday around noon.

TCI caught up with Flowers, who said the visit went very well.

“I enjoyed it a lot,” he said. “It was a lot to take in. The facilities were amazing, and the people were nice.”

Flowers (6-1, 185) made the visit with a few family members who likewise left Clemson impressed.

“My mom, dad, cousin,” Flowers said of who accompanied him. “They enjoyed it.”

Flowers spoke extensively with Swinney and Conn during his time on campus.

What did he hear from the coaches?

“Their DB depth isn’t too good,” Flowers said. “They said I could be great if I work hard enough. They would love for me to commit.”

Flowers had not played high school football before suiting up as a senior last season. He committed to Kentucky for baseball in 2016 before signing with the program in November, but got a release from his letter of intent after garnering interest from college football programs.

The two-sport standout wants to play both football and baseball at the next level, and he has the opportunity to do so at Clemson. Flowers met with the baseball staff on Thursday.

“It was pretty good,” he said of the meeting.

After leaving Clemson on Friday, Flowers immediately traveled to Tennessee for an official visit over the weekend. He also met with the Volunteers’ baseball staff there.

Flowers is expected to declare for either Clemson or Tennessee on Wednesday morning during a signing day announcement ceremony at his school. Both programs have made him a priority down the stretch.
