TE R.J. Tyler Profile
Wagner-Salley tight end R.J. Tyler attended both the Dabo Swinney Football Camp and the South Carolina showcase camp over the summer.
Both schools have taken notice of the junior prospect.
Tyler recently spoke with CUTigers to share his thoughts on the two in-state schools and where things stand with his recruitment.
"Clemson, they're known for their education," he said. "And, for their football, the way they involve the tight ends with their offensive scheme."
He enjoyed the camp in Tigertown, "It was great. I could see myself playing up there."
What stands out about South Carolina?
"I like the way they treat their players. They also get the tight end involved with the offense."
So far this season, Tyler's taken a visit to South Carolina -- he was in Columbia the UAB game.
"I'm going to try to visit Clemson," he said. "I don't know for sure yet, not any dates."
Tyler would like Clemson and South Carolina to come forward with offers. One major factor will be considered as he gets further along into the recruiting process.
"First, I'm going to be considering academics. I'm going to do my research on the academics at each school," he said.
Through seven games this season, Tyler has seven catches for 153 yards with a touchdown, and one rushing touchdown. On the defensive side of the ball, he has 25 tackles and a sack.
As a sophomore, Tyler had 15 catches for 300 yards with five touchdowns.
