Future Tiger talks elite junior day, latest '24 commitment


Clemson hosted a plethora of top recruits over the weekend for the program’s annual Elite Junior Day, with four-star tight end commit Christian Bentancur among the names in town.

The 6-foot-5, 240-pound tight end out of Illinois has been committed to Clemson since early January and is one of four Tigers commits in the 2024 cycle.

“I loved the junior day,” Bentancur told The Clemson Insider. “The highlight was just linking back and seeing all the coaches again.”

Bentancur was one of more than 20 recruits on campus this weekend. Another prospect on hand was four-star defensive lineman Champ Thompson, who committed to the Tigers on Saturday.

“Champ joining the ‘24 class is big and hopefully there is a lot more momentum after this weekend and the new commit,” Bentancur said.

According to the 247Sports Composite rankings, Bentancur is the No. 102 overall recruit and No. 4 tight end in the 2024 class.
