One of the standout prospects on hand for Clemson’s spring game Saturday was CB Jalen Harrell (6-2 180) of Miami. Harrell has a Clemson offer along with offers from Florida State, Miami, Arkansas, Georgia Tech, Kentucky, Louisville, Maryland, Nebraska, Pitt, Tennessee, South Florida and Central Florida. This visit put Clemson in a good spot with him moving forward.
“I liked the family atmosphere, everyone is family on their team, and I believe that’s where they seperate themselves from others,” Harrell said. “It was great to see the national champs live. I got a chance to talk with coach (Mike) Reed and (coach Brent) Venables, but the conversations were brief with a lot of things going on.”
Harrell said he focused on the play of the cornerbacks during the spring game and got a good look at the talent the Tigers have in those positions and how they are coached.
“I must say it was good cornerback play for the most part and I liked how they were running man, which I’m use to with my high school team who runs man a lot as well,” he said. “As far as coaching, I saw coach Reed in a players face telling him about a missed assignment, but that’s pretty much it.”
Harrell also has visited Miami three ties this spring. He’s also been to Florida State and will visit UCF this week.
“I enjoyed Clemson the most,” Harrell said. “Clemson is still definitely in my top group with Florida State, Penn State and Miami.
