Clemson offensive line coach Thomas Austin Wednesday night handed out another 2023 offer to a big Georgia offensive tackle he’s known about for a while. OT DJ Chester (6-5 305) is a teammate of Clemson commitment OT Zechariah Owens, so Austin has put eyes on him in the past, but until Wednesday night, the depth of his interest in Chester was not known. Chester took an official visit to Auburn in June, and he is scheduled for an official visit to Ole Miss this weekend. He visited LSU for a game earlier this month. USC once was interested in Chester, and he camped in Columbia last summer, but the Gamecocks cooled in their pursuit. Some of his other offers are NC State, Florida State, LSU, Southern Cal, Michigan State, Nebraska, Michigan and Miami. Chester will play in the All-American Bowl in January.
