Earlier this year Clemson offered DE Justin Eboigbe (6-4 261) of Forest Park, GA and since then the Tigers have made him a primary target with recruiter Todd Bates leading the charge. Eboigbe responded to the approach positively placing the Tigers in his top five with Alabama, Auburn, Georgia and Tennessee.
“Ever since then (the offer) I’ve been able to talk to coach (Todd) Bates and I’m building a relationship with him to where if I decide to go to that university there will be a good relationship already before I step officially onto campus as a Clemson Tiger,” Eboigbe said. “He likes that I’m long and athletic and that I attack and am aggressive.”
Eboigbe said Bates, and other recruiters, like his versatility and ability to adjust to several spots along the line.
“Being able to play all across the line, being able to create mismatches on the O-Line to where you can create opportunities for not only yourself but for others,” Eboigbe said. “You already know if you’re coming to Clemson it’s a great defense as they’ve proven over the past few years. They have the best numbers and stats for tackles for losses.”
Eboigbe visited Clemson earlier this year but has not been there for a game. He’s also visited Georgia, Alabama, Auburn and Tennessee. He plans to take his official visits before his decision and Clemson will get one. And coaches from each of his favorites have been in to see him.
Eboigbe will play in the Under Armour All American Game and said he probably won’t sign until February.
