Clemson coach Dabo Swinney has been in Texas this week checking in on prospects, including 2022 RB Andrew Paul of Texas. The Tigers had him in for an official visit last weekend and are battling Georgia, Oregon and Michigan for his signature next Wednesday. Swinney also checked in on a recent 2023 offer while in Texas, CB Braxton Myers (6-1 185) of Coppell.
Myers picked up his offer from the Tigers last week in a conversation with cornerbacks coach Mike Reed.
“I’ve been talking to Coach Reed for the past week or so. The first call was great,” Myers said. . “He had said he was going to offer me, but he was waiting to see my transcripts. And then he came back and offered. He said that when he turned on my film again and watched it, that I was a different man. And that he was very surprised, that I had been working hard for it. So yeah. It was great to hear that and be able to receive the offer.”
Myers is planning to attend the Clemson junior day this Saturday. That will give him a taste of what it would feel like to play far away from home.
“For me, it really doesn’t matter how far it is,” Myers said. “Just, if I can see myself there for three or four years. I just like the place, and if it’s like family to me, then it’s all good. Hopefully after that I come up with a top ten somewhere around February. And then probably a top five somewhere in April. And then check on my officials. And then hopefully commit by the end of summer.”
Clemson, it would appear, is in good shape to make the short list.
“I think they already are in my top ten,” Myers said. “Just being able to see all the coaches again. Just be cool. And see other recruits there. Just have a good time.”
Myers offer list also includes Auburn, Baylor, Boston College, California, Kentucky, Missouri, Florida State and Southern Cal.
Last season Myers broke up 11 passes and intercepted 3. He also had 40 tackles with 5 tackles for loss.
