Clemson defensive ends coach Marion Hobby sent out an offer to this class of 2015 defensive end/outside linebacker last month.

The recipient of the offer was Chauncey Rivers, who recently transferred over to Stephenson High School in Stone Mountain from Tucker.

"[Hobby] just told me that he had been looking at me for a while and he told me that he wanted to offer me. He thought I was a junior, but I told him that I was a sophomore," Rivers said in a recent interview with CUTigers.

The Clemson offer joined Florida, South Carolina, Vanderbilt, UConn, Southern Miss and Buffalo. And it was one that the 6-foot-3, 215-pound prospect had been hoping to receive.

"I've been looking at Clemson for a long time. I had wanted them to offer me for a while now," Rivers said.

He visited Tigertown in April for spring practice.

"I thought it was a great facility. I really liked their practice. I like what they do with their d-ends," Rivers said.

This spring, he also took visits to Auburn, Florida and Georgia. He'll head to Clemson, South Carolina and Vanderbilt this summer.

Most schools have offered Rivers to play on the defensive side of the ball. Others, like Florida, see him as a tight end.

"It really doesn't matter what I play. I just want to be on the field," he said.

And, for the meantime, he also wants to play the field. Rivers, who's only a sophomore, is in no hurry to make a decision.

"I'm really just trying to tour the schools and see which ones I like," he said.
