Clemson’s unwritten policy of going slow with offers came into play with highly regarded RB Jeremiah Cobb (5-11 186) of Montgomery, AL. Cobb is a teammate of Clemson 2022 signees SAF Kylon Griffin and LB TJ Dudley and he visited Clemson earlier this month with the idea of leaving with an offer. That didn’t happen, but that doesn’t mean it won’t happen in the future.
“I hung out with Coach (CJ) Spiller the most. He really told me that they love my film and that I’m a great person on and off the field,” Cobb said. “He told me to keep doing what I’m doing. He told me he wanted to build a relationship with me before he offers me. I got to sit in the meeting rooms with all of the coaches. I got to meet every coach and talk to them. I also go to watch the practice and see how the coaches work. Just seeing the coaches work together really stood out.”
Cobb also left Clemson with a good feeling for the culture that’s been developed there over the years.
“I loved the atmosphere when I came,” Cobb said. “All of the coaches were really happy, and they were happy to see me. I like how the coaches work together and stuff like that.”
Cobb had a huge junior season with 2163 yards and 30 touchdowns. He also had 561 receiving yards. Despite the lack of a Clemson offer, he has no shortage of suitors. He is sitting on 31 offers including USC, Auburn, Louisville, LSU, North Carolina, Tennessee, Florida, Florida State, Michigan, Nebraska, Michigan State, Penn State, Oregon and Oklahoma State.
“It has definitely started to pick up,” Cobb said. “I guess you could say that it’s kind of overwhelming, at least at first it was. I’ve kind of gotten used to it and I’m enjoying it.”
Cobb this month also has visited Tennessee and Auburn. He visited North Carolina and Florida State in January. He plans to see Georgia April 8th and is also going to visit UCF. Cobb has been to Auburn twice and the Tigers appear to have a strong position with him at the moment.
