Dabo Swinney’s Football Camp did not disappoint. Roughly 800 participants showed up and were put through their paces by Clemson coaches and players. College football is back.
Today, new prospects will come in for their first visit while players from Saturday will continue to work out or prepare to leave. A few have received offers and a few more will get offers. Coaches will hold exit interviews and dreams will become real for some of them.
5-star WR Brandon “Showtime” Inniss picked up a Clemson offer, one of those “no-brainer” offers. He accounted for almost 1000 yards and 10 touchdowns this past year and has already accumulated 34 offers.
Cornerback Ethan Nation out of Roswell, Georgia, also picked up a Clemson offer. The 6-0 170 Nation tops Inniss’ offer total with 42. There is a reason for this. He is simply good and the Clemson staff is one of the best at recognizing talent.
AJ Harris is rated as the #2 cornerback in the 2023 class and hails from the same hometown as current Clemson players Justyn Ross and EJ Williams. Can you say “pipeline”?
Moussa Kane comes to Clemson without a star rating and leaves camp with a Clemson offer. These are the things dreams are made of. Kane, 6-1 180, is what these camps are all about. Get in front of the coaches, interact with other prospects, put on a show.
One of the most hotly contested positions on the field yesterday was at quarterback. Arch Manning showed up and brought his family with him. He simply showed out, but was expected to. He wasn’t the only one. Big time prospect Nicholaus Iamaleava, 6-6 195 out of Downey, California, showed why he is quickly rising up the charts at quarterback. My camp surprise is Aliam Appler. Apple, roughly the same size as Iamaleava, relocated from Wilmington, NC, to the Sandlapper state and will play for Dutch Fork, taking over the position from current Clemson signee Will Taylor.
