TE Justin Meredith Profile
After being offered by several top schools in the south earlier this winter, he was offered by a scholarship by Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney.
The Scout.com three-star prospect talked to CUTigers about the offer shortly after his visit.
"They got me in coach Swinney's office with me, my dad and pretty much just laid it out there, and offered me," he said.
It was dream come true for the lifelong Clemson fan.
"It was very exciting and relieving at the same time," Meredith said. "I've been waiting for that. It's good to know that the school that I grew up loving offered."
Since he's been to Clemson so many times over the years, there wasn't much that Meredith saw that he hadn't seen before Saturday.
"One [new] thing was I got to see the dorms where the football players stay. I got to put on my jersey and all that stuff. That was cool," he said.
Before Clemson's offer, South Carolina, LSU, Tennessee, Duke, North Carolina, N.C. State, Wake Forest and Cincinnati jumped into the mix with offers.
Don't look for Meredith to make a decision anytime soon.
"I'm not even going to narrow the list down until the summer," he said. "Just right now, I'm kind of sitting back and seeing how things go. In the early part of June I'm probably going to begin narrowing it down."
Prior to the Clemson junior day, he visited Tennessee, Georgia and Florida. He'll be in Auburn later this month.
Despite his options, some assume that he'll pick his hometown favorite.
"I'm not saying that I'm going to Clemson, but I'm not saying that I'm not going to go to Clemson, but it's good to know that I have the opportunity to go there, if I want to," Meredith said.
