CB Myles Oliver (6-1 170) of Douglasville, GA had a big weekend at Clemson. He arrived on Friday for his official visit without an offer. He got that offer on Saturday. And on Sunday, before departing, he committed to head coach Dabo Swinney. He gives the Tigers in the 2022 class three corners, a position of need with both starters leaving for the NFL.
Unlike Andrew Booth and Mario Goodrich, Oliver was not highly listed on the board of top cornerbacks nationally. His only other offers were from Georgia Tech, Charleston Southern and Bethune-Cookman. But that didn’t deter Clemson corners coach Mike Reed from going all-in for him.
“He’s been saying that he likes my speed, size and athleticism,” Oliver said. “It’s a good, winning program. That’s what I like about Clemson. I like how their defense sets up, and how coach Reed coaches the corners. He’s had a whole bunch of corners who have gone to the NFL.”
This season Oliver had 75 tackles with 5 interceptions on defense, and on offense, he had 552 all-purpose yards. He also scored four touchdowns.
