Clemson put the wraps on its major recruiting efforts leading into pre-season camp Sunday with a cookout that involved most of the 2022 commitments and some remaining major targets for the class. One of the key figures on hand was TE Oscar Delp of Cumming, GA. Delp has become Clemson’s primary focus for the tight end position at the moment.
Delp also visited Clemson in early June and felt the need to take one more visit with the Tigers this summer.
“Last time I saw them, I didn’t get to spend a lot of time with coaches, so that’s kind of why I went back this week,” Delp said. “It was good and they’re definitely near the top of my list right now. We were only there for a couple of hours. It was good hanging out with all the players and coaches. There was not a lot of recruiting. It was mainly hanging out and get to know each other and get to meet everyone.”
Delp said he spent most of his time with committed prospects quarterback Cade Klubnik and wide receiver Adam Randall. Delp and Klubnik met for the first time at The Opening earlier this month and have developed a connection on and off the field. The two have talked a lot about teaming at Clemson.
“Definitely. He’d be a great player to be on the same team with and get to catch the ball from,” Delp said.
The Clemson visit will be the only one for Delp during the quiet period this week. Both USC and Georgia wanted him to visit for their cookout on Saturday. Since he can’t be two places at once, he decided to pass on both. But he’ll see both, and others, in September.
“I know I’ll be at the Clemson-Georgia game,” Delp said. “I know I am going to go to a Georgia game, a Clemson game, a South Carolina game and I think a Michigan game as well.”
The other top uncommitted prospects at Clemson Sunday included DT Travis Shaw of Greensboro, NC, WR Andre Greene Jr. of Richmond, who also visited with Dabo Swinney at his home until about 10:30 PM Sunday night, Mauldin CB Jeadyn Lukus, TE Josh Sapp of Greenville and punter Jackson Smith of Saraland, AL.
