Daniyel Ngata

One of the exciting newcomers at Clemson this past spring practice was receiver Joseph Ngata of Folsom, CA. Thus far Ngata has had a very positive experience at Clemson though he’s three thousand miles from home. That distance doesn’t appear to be a factor either for his younger brother Daniyel. A running back/slot back prospect in the 2020 class, he has a Clemson offer and was in earlier this month for a camp, his second visit to the school.

Clemson already has a pair of running back commitments, so if they decide to move on Ngata, and vice-versa, it would be an oversign for that position. Ngata is well aware of the situation.

“Me, Coach Elliott and Coach Scott just text sometimes just to catch up and keep in contact,” Ngata said. “They’ve got those two running backs committed but that doesn’t mean anything until Signing Day. I’m just keeping that contact with every coach. They said they’re still taking two but you just never know what’s going to happen. There’s not as much contact as there used to be, but we still keep in contact once every two weeks or every other week.”

Ngata has Clemson in his final seven along with Texas A&M, Penn State, Utah, Arizona State, Oregon and Oklahoma. He would like to take an official visit to Texas A&M this summer if he can work it in.

Last season Ngata rolled up 1700 all purpose yards and 22 touchdowns.
