WR Julian Fleming of Catawissa, PA is another of the top receiver targets in the 2020 class Clemson is pursuing. He was in for his first visit last weekend. Though it was an unofficial visit, Fleming treated it like an official visit staying three nights and getting the full treatment from Dabo Swinney and his staff.
“The visit was great,” Fleming said. “The best part was just being around the coaches and playing some basketball or going out to dinner with a couple of the players. Being able to hear things from a player’s perspective was important.”
He also heard things from the coaches perspective as receivers coach Jeff Scott and Swinney had plenty to share.
“I spent the most time with Coach Jeff Scott, but pretty equal between him and Coach Swinney,” he said. “Their message was just all the things that Clemson does different and how they put their players in a place to be successful as a man and a player.”
Fleming has named a top six of Clemson, Penn State, Alabama, Ohio State, Georgia and Oregon. He hasn’t gone further than that in revealing his inner feelings about the schools but the visit to Clemson certainly left the Tigers in high standing.
“Clemson put itself in a very good spot,” he said, “Only the coaches know how good because you can’t put everything out there.”
According to MaxPreps, Fleming has 150 career catches for 3195 yards and 43 touchdowns. Last season he caught 45 passes for 777 yards and 10 touchdowns in eight games.
