RB Jay Jay McCullough Profile
Nation Ford High School junior Jay Jay McCullough met with head coach Dabo Swinney shortly after arriving to campus for the Orange and White game. They last saw one another during the March Junior Day.
"We just had to catch up on some things," McCullough told CUTigers.com. "He was telling me, again, how perfect I was for their offense. We're just catching up, basically. That went well."
While most of the visitors toured campus, McCullough stayed behind at the West End Zone and hung out in the locker room with players as they got ready for the game.
What stood out about the trip?
"I've been there about four or five times. Everything stands out to me. The people, the atmosphere—I like it all," he said.
Clemson is the only school that the rising senior has visited so far this spring. He may head down to Georgia Tech on Saturday for the T-Day game.
A trip to South Carolina could also be in the works.
"They want to give me a personal tour of the campus," McCullough said. "The last time I went to their junior day, they didn't really talk to me as much. I guess they didn't know who I was yet. Now, they want me down there, to talk to me a little bit."
Along with Clemson, Kentucky, Miami (Ohio) and Duke have offered. He added that N.C. State informed his mom that an offer is also on the way.
"N.C. State talked to my mom. They didn't talk to me. They told her that they want to offer me," McCullough said. "When I get a chance to them, they'll offer me on the phone."
South Carolina hasn't named a position they're recruiting McCullough to play, but he believes an offer from the Gamecocks is on the way.
"I don't have any favorites," he said. "Right now, overall, Clemson is at the top of the list. I'm not favoring anybody. I'm just seeing how the recruiting process goes on and see how many offers I can get, who's out there."
As a junior, he rushed 80 times for almost 600 yards and had 30 catches for close to 300 yards. He scored 15 total touchdowns.
Clemson is recruiting McCullough to play the 3-back position, a hybrid of the H-back/tight end.
