DE Antonio Riles Profile
Archer High School junior Antonio Riles spoke with CUTigers
on Tuesday night about the Clemson offer.
"It was probably about 25-30 minutes ago," he said.
Riles had called Clemson running backs coach Tony Elliott.
"We sent some tape over there [recently]…I called [Clemson] and they just
talked to me about it then," Riles said.
The 6-foot-3, 250-pound prospect grew up a fan of the Tigers.
"I was just infatuated by the colors and all that stuff when I was a kid.
I know it's a really good school, academically. Just playing for their
defense, there's really high expectations," Riles said.
Though he hasn't visited Clemson, that will change.
"I don't know how I'm going to do it, but I'm going to try and find a way
to get up there," Riles said.
Clemson is "for sure" one of his favorites. "They're still up there."
Florida offered on Monday, joining Kentucky and Tennessee.
"These last three weeks have been a big surprise for me, with everything
going on," he said.
