SAF Khari Gee (6-3 185) of Atlanta picked up an offer last week from Clemson when coaches, including safeties coach Mickey Conn, came by his school. They also invited him to visit for the junior day last Saturday, which he did. All of that has put Clemson in a commanding position with Gee.
“It’s exciting and eye-opening (the Clemson interest). I’m not sure right now about when I might make a decision,” Gee said. “It may be soon and it may not be, I’m just not sure. But Clemson is at the top and they may be number one. It was a great visit. They don’t recruit a lot of people, and you can tell that everyone there is really genuine.”
Gee said a key part of his visit was the time he spent with Conn, defensive coordinator Brent Venables, and head coach Dabo Swinney. Gee said Conn laid things out for him clearly.
“When I’m ready to sign, to go ahead and commit because that spot doesn’t come too often and you never want to let it slip through your fingers,” Gee said. “Coach Conn stayed with me the whole day and he didn’t leave my side. That was really important and let me know that I was really a priority and really wanted among all of those good players.”
The three-star prospect also holds offers from Arkansas, Florida State, Georgia Tech, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Tennessee, Virginia Tech and others.
According to MaxPreps stats, last season Gee had 58 total tackles and broke up 6 passes.
