Clemson has set its sights on WR Tee Higgins (6-5 190) of Oak Ridge, TN hoping to land another of that state’s top prospects. Already the Tigers have commitments from WR Amari Rodgers of Knoxville and RB Cordarrion Richardson of Memphis.
Higgins was a Mr. Football in Tennessee last season as a junior. He had 52 catches for 941 yards and 28 touchdowns. He also had 41 tackles and 3 interceptions on defense.
Higgins also is a major basketball recruit with offers from Auburn and Tennessee. He averaged 15 points per game this season.
But Higgins is drawing most of his attention in football where he has over 20 offers including Clemson, USC, Tennessee, Auburn, Georgia, Alabama, Ohio State, Notre Dame, Michigan, Maryland, LSU and Oregon.
Higgins just recently finished his basketball season so he’s not taken any visits since attending Clemson’s junior day in late January and he has no visits scheduled at this point. Clemson coaches have been in regular contact.
“It’s a nice school and a nice program and I like the coaches,” Higgins said. “They see me as a 9 (receiver), like (Nuk) Hopkins.”
Higgins said he’s not narrowed his list and he doesn’t have a timetable on a decision. And he doesn’t have a favorite. He once was committed to Tennessee but decommitted in February.
Higgins said it’s possible he’ll return to Clemson for the spring game April 9th.
