RB Ameer Abdullah Profile
Homewood High School (Ala.) senior running back/cornerback Ameer Abdullah picked up an offer from the Tigers last week.
Offensive guards and centers coach Brad Scott contacted Abdullah's high school coach to pass along the news.
"I had gotten a couple of letters, but not much, really [before the offer]," Abdullah recently told CUTigers. "I sent my senior highlights in, and I guess they liked it.
"Some of my friends are committed there right now. I really didn't know much about the school."
He met Marlin Lane and Cortez Davis this summer and has kept in touch with the Mainland teammates/Clemson commits through Facebook.
Might a visit to Clemson be in store?
"I'm going to try to, but my schedule is real tight, at this point," Abdullah said.
He's already take two of his official visits this fall—Tennessee and Vanderbilt.
Currently, Abdullah lists West Virginia, Auburn and Tennessee, in order, as his favorites.
Vanderbilt, Texas A&M, Texas Tech, South Florida and South Carolina have also offered.
Clemson, Tennessee and South Carolina are recruiting him to play cornerback—the rest like Abdullah as a running back.
"I would probably say I prefer running back, because I've played it longer. But cornerback is pretty exciting," he said.
Abdullah, who is currently ranked as the No. 66 running back in the country according to Scout.com and rated three stars, plans on waiting until signing day to make his decision.
He finished his senior season with 1,700 yards rushing, 700 yards receiving and 27 total touchdowns.
