4-star New Jersey DB excited over Clemson offer, eyeing visit


Clemson extended several new scholarship offers last week, including two to a couple of the top 2020 prospects in the state of New Jersey.

One of those is Oradell (N.J.) Bergen Catholic four-star safety Jordan Morant, who picked up the offer on Thursday.

The Clemson Insider caught up with Morant (6-1, 195) to get his thoughts on the offer and more.

“It was just a feeling of excitement, to describe it honestly,” Morant said. “Clemson is just an amazing school and obviously a prestigious football program, and receiving an offer from them is just the greatest feeling.”

Morant is considered a top-10 safety nationally for the 2020 cycle by multiple major recruiting services.

Clemson joined Alabama, Auburn, Florida, LSU, Michigan, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Southern Cal, Stanford, Tennessee and Texas A&M, among others, on Morant’s lengthy offer list.

Morant received the offer from the Tigers via defensive coordinator Brent Venables.

“I found out about it when Coach Venables came to my school last week,” Morant said. “He (asked) me if I was interested in Clemson, and of course I said yeah, and he told me I have an offer from them.”

Morant is now looking to make the long-distance trip to check out Clemson for the first time this spring.

“Definitely is a place I would love to visit when I have time in the spring,” he said.

As a junior in 2018, Morant recorded 36 total tackles, including 3.5 for loss and a sack, along with three pass deflections.

He is ranked by 247Sports as the No. 5 safety and No. 148 overall prospect in the 2020 class.

Clemson also offered another prospect from New Jersey last week in Montvale (N.J.) St. Joseph’s four-star defensive end Amin Vanover.
