Clemson is looking to add up to three wide receivers in the 2022 recruiting class.
With the commitment of Adam Randall late last year, one of those spots is already taken. The Tigers are very keen on adding a slot guy and have zeroed in on Brenen Thompson as the top target.
The speedy 5-foot-10 wideout from Texas just dropped his list of top six schools, with Clemson making the cut.
However, the highly-touted wideout has been trending towards Texas of late and pulling Thompson out of Longhorns territory will be a daunting task. Although, we’ve seen this Clemson coaching stuff pull it off time and again in the past. Oklahoma State is also in the mix.
Thompson is nowhere close to making a decision and the Tigers are hoping they can get him on campus for an official visit in the fall. He’s already taken official visits to Oklahoma State, Oregon and Texas A&M.
There is another option much closer to home the Tigers are keeping an eye on as well. 4-star Antonio Williams out of Dutch Fork has yet to pick up an offer from Clemson, but that does not mean he won’t in the future.
Williams was on campus in June and received a lot of attention from the Clemson coaching staff, including Dabo Swinney and Tyler Grisham. When and if an offer does come, expect the Tigers to be major players.
Williams isn’t anywhere close to a decision either and the coaching staff can afford to be patient with both he and Thompson.
Outside of Thompson, the only other uncommitted prospect with an offer is Andre Green. He picked up that offer after working out for the coaches at one of the camp sessions in June.
Right now this appears to be a battle between North Carolina and Clemson, although Georgia and Florida State are also recruiting him hard. The 6-foot-3 wideout from Virginia has already taken official visits to North Carolina, Georgia, and Oregon and is planning to take one to Notre Dame in the fall.
Like both Thompson and Williams, Green’s recruitment still has a long way to go. It’s very likely he waits until later in the fall to make a decision and it’s possible it isn’t until the end of the recruiting cycle.
As it stands today, the Tigers appear to be in good shape, but Mack Brown has made it a battle, and that Tarheel coaching staff is becoming a force to be reckoned with on the recruiting trail.
Clemson and Florida State have released depth charts ahead of this weekend’s matchup at Death Valley.
