Clemson Recruiting: Tigers Take Lead for One Prospect, Losing Ground With Another

The first week of June has been just as crazy as expected in recruiting circles.

The Tigers are making significant impressions as a multitude of top targets in 2022 and 2023 have been on campus in the past few days. The coaches handed out a ton of 2023 offers earlier in the week, with one going out to a 2022 prospect as well.

That 2022 offer went out to linebacker DeMario Tolan, who visited earlier this week. The 4-star player from Orlando worked out for the coaching staff and was impressive enough to come away with an offer.

The Tigers are planning to take just one true linebacker prospect in this class, and Tolan just might be that guy. He is a legit Top-250 talent and as it stands right now Clemson is the team to beat.

Tolan still has visits to take to Tennessee, Auburn, LSU, and Miami, though, but going into those the Tigers are in good shape. A decision should come sometime later this summer as Tolan wants to have things wrapped up before he starts his senior season.

While Clemson is in good shape with Tolan, the Tigers appear to be losing ground with 2022 safety target Sherrod Covil. After his recent visit to Miami, the Canes have emerged as a major player and might even be the leader at this point. It also looks like he will take an official to Miami later this month.

The 4-star prospect from Virginia is ranked No. 11 among all safeties and No. 203 overall. Covil was at Virginia yesterday and still has trips to Maryland, Penn State and Ohio State scheduled. He is also set to be at the Elite Retreat June 12-13.

Whether Miami can keep that presumed lead remains to be seen. As we have seen over the past few days, things are rapidly changing now that recruiting has opened back up.
