CB Kamari Lassiter of Tuscaloosa said he will make his college decision about the time of his first football game this season. His first game is set for August 21st, so he’s in a three week window from making his decision. Lassiter has a final six of Clemson, Auburn, Alabama, LSU, Georgia and Florida State. He said all remain involved and he’s done a virtual tour with each program.
Clemson cornerbacks coach Mike Reed and area recruiter Todd Bates are heading up Clemson’s recruiting effort. And he’s also talked with head coach Dabo Swinney.
“We’ve been talking frequently about life and football,” Lassiter said. “How I would fit in their scheme and how they feel Clemson would be a fit for me. He likes that I’m not afraid to hit and he likes that I play cover-2 pretty well. He also likes my intelligence, my football IQ and my aggressiveness.”
Lassiter camped at Clemson last summer, so he has a good feel for the campus and the program.
“I feel pretty good about Clemson,” Lassiter said. “They are definitely a school I’m interested in. It’s kind of hard not to like Clemson.”
Last season Lassiter had 4 interceptions and broke up 6 passes. He also plays receiver and had 41 catches for 513 yards and 15 touchdowns. He’s rated a three-star prospect in the 247Sports Composite and ranked the #25 cornerback prospect in the country.
