WR Malachi Dupre (6-3 190) of River Ridge, LA has many offers from schools that span the country but Clemson’s offer is unique. Every other program reached out to Dupre first. “Clemson was the only school I reached out to first,” said Dupre. “My coach asked me if there were any other schools that I was interested in that hadn’t offered me and I said, ‘Clemson.'” Dupre’s coach contacted the Tigers and the offer was extended to the Bayou receiver. “They told him the only reason they had not offered was because they thought I wouldn’t be interested,” Dupre said. “I like their offense. I like what Sammy Watkins and Nuk Hopkins did there and I think that I could make that kind of impact.” His offers include Clemson, LSU, Alabama, Florida State, Texas A&M, Ole Miss, Mississippi State, Michigan, Michigan State, Notre Dame, Arkansas, Auburn, Vanderbilt, Nebraska, Maryland and Miami among others. He does not have any favorites and has not taken many visits. Dupre would like to visit Clemson and is looking to begin narrowing his list late this summer. He totaled over 800 yards receiving and 16 touchdowns as a junior.
