DE Shameik Blackshear Profile
One of his first stops was at Bluffton High School where he checked in on 2015 defensive end Shameik Blackshear and 2014 defensive tackle K.J. Ford.
Before Elliott left, an offer was given to Blackshear.
"It just felt good. I knew Clemson was a real good school. For me to get an offer from Clemson, it shows that I'm a good athlete with good potential," Blackshear told CUTigers earlier this week.
Elliott passed the news along to Bluffton head coach Ken Cribb, who then informed Blackshear.
The offer is No. 3 for the 6-foot-5, 230-pound sophomore. South Carolina was first. North Carolina was second.
An offer from the Gamecocks was special.
"It was good, because that's my favorite team to watch and I'm a big fan of [Jadeveon] Clowney. For me to get an offer from a school that I like to watch and [admire] somebody from, it's a blessing," Blackshear said.
He saw Clowney play in person on Saturday when Clemson hosted South Carolina. It was the second Clemson trip of the season for Blackshear, who was in for the Ball State game.
"This game was a real, real, real exciting game. I had a good time. K.J. and I had a good time," Blackshear said. "It was packed the whole time. It was close the whole game but Carolina executed more and had the better players."
Aside from the two Clemson trips, he visited South Carolina for the Missouri game.
Georgia and UCLA have also been in contact with Blackshear.
"South Carolina and Clemson are my top two."
As a sophomore, Blackshear finished with 97 tackles, 17 tackles for loss, 15 quarterback pressures, three fumble recoveries, two returned for a touchdown, two pass breakups, a blocked field goal and a blocked punt. He also caught a touchdown pass.
