ATH Marqui Hawkins Profile
Marqui Hawkins, the most sought after 2013 prospect from Carver (Columbus, Ga.), was in Clemson for the Orange and White spring game earlier this month.
"I talked to the coaches. I went to the spring game, ate, had a little meal with coach Cheese [defensive backs coach Charlie Harbison]," he recently told CUTigers.com. "We talked about if I would like to come to Clemson. He wasn't asking me or telling me to come to Clemson. He was just asking me if I would like to play, safety or receiver, which one—school work, too."
What was the best part about the trip?
"I was on the field before they started playing, when they were warming up and everything, when they were in the locker room and how they do like before regular season games, ride on the bus and come down the hill," Hawkins said. "I got to feel on the rock and run down the hill, like they usually do."
He spent the night with former Carver standouts David Beasley and Corey Crawford, a pair of Clemson freshmen.
"[They say] it's a good school and that I'd like it there, how the teachers are and they'll be with you any time you need them," Hawkins said.
What stands out about the Tigers?
"The coaching staff and how good the schools is, and how they treat you," he said.
Hawkins visited Alabama the week after his trip to Clemson. He'll head down to Miami for a visit in the next few weeks.
He holds offers from Alabama, Georgia and Purdue. Early on, he claims Clemson and Georgia as the leaders.
As a sophomore, Hawkins had 21 catches for 386 yards and five touchdowns. He'll play both wide receiver and safety this fall.
