Clemson offers massive OL prospect

Clemson has offered Warwick (R.I.) Bishop Hendricken 2019 four-star offensive tackle Xavier Truss, he announced via Twitter on Friday.

Truss, who stands at 6-foot-7, 325 pounds, has seen his recruitment take off following an impressive showing at the U.S. Army National Combine in San Antonio last month.

Clemson joins the 24 other programs that have offered Truss this calendar year, a group that includes schools such as Alabama, Georgia, Ohio State, Michigan, Penn State, Florida, Florida State, LSU, Oklahoma, Southern Cal and Tennessee.

Truss began hearing from Clemson about a month ago, and made his first visit to Clemson on Wednesday.

TCI recently spoke with Truss, who told us that an offer from Clemson would mean a lot to him.

“They are probably one of my favorite schools,” Truss said, “so an offer from them would be incredible. I love everything from the incredible academics to the athletic side.”

Truss is ranked by the 247Sports Composite as the No. 1 prospect in Rhode Island, No. 13 offensive tackle and No. 99 overall prospect for the class of 2019. He hopes to commit by the start of his senior season.
