Unlike so many of his stature, five-star safety Keon Sabb of IMG Academy and Williamston, NJ is not rushing to make his college decision. And that’s good for Clemson because Sabb plans to make an official visit to Clemson in the fall before deciding, as things stand now. He did visit Clemson June 11th for the Elite Retreat. That stop was part of a busy month for him.
“I’m taking in a lot right now with all these visits, still trying to figure out things and evaluate everybody with my family,” Sabb said. “I went to Penn State (official), Clemson, Georgia (official), Michigan (official) and Texas A&M. I’m taking LSU and Clemson’s official during the season. We haven’t set up the dates yet. I’m still trying to figure out my IMG schedule.”
Sabb and other Clemson targets at IMG want to attend the cookout July 24th, something IMG coaches haven’t allowed in the past because of a conflict with their own summer workout schedule. Those players plan to discuss that matter with their coaches to see what might be worked out. In the meantime, Sabb is keeping in touch with Dabo Swinney, Brent Venables and Mickey Conn.
“I talked to Dabo about three days ago,” Sabb said. “I talk to Coach Venables and coach Mickey Conn every day. It’s no real message. They’re just same recruiting, just building a relationship about a year now, talking to them and keeping the relationship strong.”
One of Sabb’s IMG teammates, and fellow New Jersian Jihaad Campbell, committed to Clemson Sunday, part of another strong class the Tigers are constructing. Sabb has noticed.
“That’s going to be a pretty nice class, I think top five, top three when it gets all done. All the rumors I’ve heard with a lot of other players,” Sabb said. “That’s pretty intriguing to me with all those top guys going there.”
Sabb is ranked the #2 ATH nationally and the #4 prospect in Florida in the 247Sports Composite.
