Talented 2025 CB Deuce Edwards 96-1 178) of Richmond was back at Clemson in September for the FAU game. He had been to Clemson previously for a camp last summer and an unofficial visit prior to that. Edwards and Clemson cornerbacks coach Mike Reed are building a tight bond that could eventually lead to the two working together.
“Clemson is definitely one of my top schools,” Edwards said. “I love coach Reed, love coach (Dabo) Swinney, I love the whole coaching staff. Clemson is just one of those schools that’s always been a dream school, one of those big-time schools that I look forward to on TV ever since I was young.”
Edwards added that another major attraction to Clemson for him is the head coach.
“Coach Swinney is definitely a good guy, he’s a great coach,” Edwards said. “He’s definitely got a connection with all his players. All his players follow him and believe in everything that he does. That’s a great coach to have and someone I can look forward to playing for.”
Edwards named a top twelve a few weeks ago with Clemson right there. The others were Tennessee, Oklahoma, Virginia Tech, Georgia Tech, Virginia, West Virginia, Boston College, Penn State, Maryland and Louisville. He’s a player whose cornerback talents are in demand by corner coaches like Clemson’s Reed.
“My play style, how versatile I am, how physical I am at corner and how well I can move,” Edwards said about what Reed likes in him. “When I went to the game, I saw a lot of man, saw the corners get up in the receivers face. They were physical and played with passion and aggression. Those are things I like about my game that I can see myself playing at Clemson with.”
Edwards said he’s not sure he’ll make it back to Clemson for another game this season, but he will try to. He does plan to take an official visit to Clemson this summer. He has also been to Tennessee for a game this season, and during the summer he made stops at Louisville, Tennessee, Alabama, Penn State and Virginia Tech.
