Dabo Swinney’s All In Cookout has become one of the nation’s premier recruiting events each year.
Every cookout is its own unique affair. Some are larger gatherings, while some are smaller. This year’s event was one of the smaller ones, albeit a successful one that really felt like a small family affair. An atmosphere this coaching staff thrives in.
All of the Tigers’ committed prospects were on hand with the exception of the three players from IMG, who have already started preparations for their season and could not make the trip.
Here are the uncommitted prospects that made the trip.
- Travis Shaw: Most were unsure whether the 5-star defensive tackle was planning to attend after he was just in town last month for the Elite Retreat. Turns out, he did in fact make the trip, which is good news for the Tigers. Shaw has been a priority target for the Clemson coaches throughout and the Tigers are locked in a three-way battle with Georgia and North Carolina when it comes to landing one of the top high school players in the nation. Having him in attendance is a HUGE win for this coaching staff.
- Jeadyn Lukus: Like Shaw, the in-state corner from Mauldin also made the trip after attending the Elite Retreat. Lukus has long been thought to be a strong lean to Clemson, although Mack Brown and the Tarheels made it a little tougher than most expected.
- Oscar Delp: One of the top tight end prospects in the country also made an appearance after also attending the Elite Retreat. Delp’s recruitment is expected to last into the fall, with Clemson, Georgia and South Carolina being the three teams at the top of his list. Delp plans to be on hand in Charlotte for the Clemson and Georgia matchup to open the season.
- Andre Greene: The elite WR got to campus early over the weekend and did not leave until late Sunday night. This is a recruitment that will stretch well into the fall but Clemson has to like where they stand right now.
- Josh Sapp: Another 2022 tight end prospect. He is the son of former Clemson Tiger Patrick Sapp and from right down the road in Greeneville. While he doesn’t have an offer yet, one could be coming of the Tigers miss on Delp.
- Jackson Smith: The number one punter in the country made the trek from his home state of Alabama. At 6-foot-5, 225-pounds, Smith is one of the more physically imposing punters you will ever see.
