LB Jordan Mastrogiovanni Profile
While at Jesuit, Morris offered three 2013 prospects. One of which was
junior linebacker Jordan Mastrogiovanni.
"It was really unexpected, actually," Mastrogiovanni told CUTigers.
"He wants us to come up for a visit. He just extended an offer. We were
kind of startled, but mainly honored. Really honored to get an opportunity
to play at Clemson."
Morris also offered wide receiver Jake Oliver and offensive tackle J.J.
Since the trio was offered by the Tigers on Tuesday, Mastrogiovanni has
begun to research Clemson since.
"Coach [Dabo] Swinney has a great record. They just won the
ACC and I really think they're on the rise," he said. "I actually had them
projected to go all the way at the beginning of the season. It's
definitely a place on the rise.
"I think coach [Brent] Venables is a great, new hire. I
can't wait to see how things turn out for them this season."
Mastrogiovanni is familiar with the former Oklahoma defensive coordinator,
who was hired by Clemson for the same job last week.
"He came up to a spring practice one day. He invited me up to one of the
OU camps and I went," Mastrogiovanni said.
The Clemson offer was No. 2 for the 6-foot-2, 230-pound linebacker. Purdue
He'll head to Baylor for a junior day this weekend and then to Texas Tech
next month. A Clemson trip could be in the works.
"I actually really want to go for a visit. My dad and I talked about it,"
Mastrogiovanni said. "He said it's definitely a place because they have
good academics…I actually really do want to go check it out. I think it's
a place that would really be fun to play. I think I'd get a lot out of
