Clemson University’s football program scored a major coup this week when one of the nation’s Top Ten high school wide receivers – Florida’s Artavis Scott – announced his intention to leave the Sunshine State next fall and head for Tigertown.
Scott – a 5-foot-11, 179-pound wideout from Tarpon Springs, Florida – is a four-star prospect who had scholarship offers from all of the big Florida schools (Florida, Florida State, Miami and Central Florida). He was also recruited by Arkansas, Auburn, Michigan, Oklahoma, Wisconsin and numerous other big-name programs from across the country.
And Clemson got him …
Scott caught 64 passes for nearly 1,000 yards and ten touchdowns as a junior. He also played running back, kick returner and defensive end for East Lake High School.
Props to head coach Dabo Swinney and his staff for landing another star wideout …
Clemson has had some of the nations’ best recruiting classes in recent years … a trend that looks like it’s going to continue into 2014.
