Clemson landed a major offensive piece for their 2024 class Friday afternoon when TE Christian Bentancur (6-5 240) of Woodstock, IL announced for the Tigers over Oregon and Ohio State. He is the Tigers’ third commitment for the class joining DB Tavoy Feagin and PK Nolan Hauser.
Bentancur is considered one of the top tight end prospects nationally in his class. Over the last two seasons he caught 107 passes for over 2100 yards and 27 touchdowns.
Bentancur camped at Clemson last summer and was offered by Dabo Swinney at that point. He returned for a game in November and those exposures to the program gave him enough of a feeling to know that was the right place for him.
“They show a lot of love and they’re obviously a great team with two great tight ends right now and it’s definitely fun to watch their offense play with their tight ends,” Bentancur said last week. “It really showed they’re interested and it wasn’t just like another offer that went out, because they really take their offer seriously. In Clemson, football is one of the only shows in town. There’s a lot of diehard fans out there that are ready to cheer them on all the time. It’s awesome
As a junior Bentancur racked up 54 receptions for 1,058 yards and 11 receiving touchdowns. His sophomore season might have been even more impressive, as he caught 53 passes for 1,165 yards with 16 receiving touchdowns.
