ATH D.J. Greenlee Profile
D.J. Greenlee, a junior outside linebacker at nearby Daniel High
School [Central], was going through Saturday's Junior Day tour when he got
the good news.
"Once coach [Dan] Brooks came and got me out of a little
tour and took me over to the West End Zone -- I knew we were going back to
[Swinney's] office, I was like, I wonder what's about to happen," Greenlee
told CUTigers on Sunday. "I got in there. [Swinney] sat me down and
was talking to me about how he'd seen me grow up. Then he was like, ‘I'm
going to offer you a full scholarship.'
"My eyes got big. I was surprised."
The Clemson offer is one that Greenlee really wanted. His father, Larry,
an assistant director of strength, speed and conditioning, works with all
football skill positions and is the direct supervisor of the Clemson
Olympic Sports programs.
Aside from the connections through his father, there's a pipeline from
Daniel to Clemson. Wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins signed with the Tigers in
2010. Defensive tackle DeShawn Williams inked in 2011 and defensive end
Shaquille Lawson will sign on Wednesday.
"It just feels like home. I can't go anywhere. Nothing's better than
that," Greenlee said.
A commitment is right around the corner for the 6-foot-3, 205-pound
"I'll probably know by next week," he said.
Maryland, Tennessee, N.C. State and Wake Forest are also in contact.
Greenlee visited Tennessee last fall for the South Carolina game.
As a junior, he had 91 tackles, two interceptions and four fumble
