OT D.J. Humphries Profile

Mallard Creek High School (Charlotte, N.C.) junior D.J. Humphries picked up an offer from Clemson when he was in Tigertown for the Orange and White spring game.

He recently caught up with CUTigers to talk about the visit for the Miami game.

"I liked the game a lot. I liked the crowd, the crowd was really into it," Humphries said.

The four-star offensive lineman spent time 1-on-1 with his main recruiter at Clemson, offensive tackles/tight ends coach Danny Pearman. Running backs coach/special teams coordinator Andre Powell and offensive guards/centers coach Brad Scott also said hello.

"Me and coach Pearman know each other pretty well, so it was more of a ‘Hey, what's up?' kind of thing," Humphries said. "Coach Powell, we're from [Union] in South Carolina. We were talking about different about a few different things. Me and coach Scott didn't talk that much. He just told me he was happy to see me down there."

Humphries, whose aunt ran track at Clemson, visited LSU the weekend before the trip to Clemson. He'll be in Columbia for South Carolina's game versus Alabama.

His offer sheet grew to 22 Tuesday night when Florida offered.

Right now, there's not a list of favorites.

"I'm pretty much open to anybody right now. I'm still keeping my options open and looking at everyone," Humphries said.

He does have some interest in Clemson.

"Clemson is definitely in the race for where I'm going to school," Humphries said. "I love the campus and I love the coaching staff." Top Stories
