DB Hamsah Nasirildeen of Concord, NC quickly rising among the top safety prospects in the 2017 class. And Clemson, after three years of Jayron Kearse, likes the look of a tall, rangy safety at the back end of its defense. So, the Tigers are moving in on Nasirildeen and had him on campus this week to watch practice.
“I like the school a lot and the coaches and how they talk,” Nasirildeen said. “Due to circumstances at safety and the way I play they think I have a good chance to come in and make a change in the program and stuff like that. It was a nice experience. I enjoyed it. They practice hard and practice well.”
The visit was Nasirildeen’s first at Clemson and it helped cement the Tigers in his head.
“It keeps their name in the running I guess,” he said.
Nasirildeen said he’s in regular contact with Clemson coaches Brent Venables and Mike Reed.
Friday Nasirildeen will visit Florida and Saturday he’s going to Florida State. He’s also been to USC and he talked Thursday with Will Muschamp.
“I like them, I feel comfortable with the school and stuff like that,” he said.
Nasirildeen doesn’t have a favorite at this point and he’s not ready to reduce his list until he thinks more about the schools. He probably will have a short list this summer and he thinks Clemson and USC will be on it. He has no timetable on a decision.
