Fast-rising safety could visit Clemson this weekend after offer

By

Major scholarship offers continue to roll in for College Park (Ga.) Woodward Academy safety Khari Gee, a 6-foot-3, 190-pound prospect in the class of 2021.

Clemson extended his latest offer Thursday, following offers from LSU and Florida State on Wednesday and an offer from Michigan State on Tuesday.

Gee found out about his offer from the Tigers during a phone call with safeties coach and area recruiter Mickey Conn.

“I felt very surprised and excited,” he told The Clemson Insider.

What did Gee hear from Conn about Clemson’s interest during their conversation?

“He said he loves the way I play,” Gee said. “And he loves my length.”

Gee has yet to check out Clemson in person but plans to do so – perhaps as soon as this weekend.

The Tigers are hosting their elite junior day for select 2021 recruits on Saturday, and there is a chance that Gee will be in attendance.

“I do plan to visit,” he said. “Maybe on Saturday.”

Along with the aforementioned schools, Gee has a long list of offers that includes Michigan, Tennessee, Kentucky, Georgia Tech, NC State, Duke, Virginia, Virginia Tech, Louisville, Wake Forest, Pittsburgh, West Virginia, Southern Cal and others.

Gee says he has no favorites in his recruitment right now and isn’t sure when he will make his decision, but he is certainly interested in the Tigers after getting their offer.

“I know Clemson has always been a very good program,” he said, “and I know they are just trying to stay at that high standard that they have earned over the years.”

As a junior in 2019, Gee registered 58 total tackles, including four for a loss, to go with six pass deflections, a forced fumble and fumble recovery.
